gnutls_pbkdf2 - API function

#include <gnutls/crypto.h>

int gnutls_pbkdf2(gnutls_mac_algorithm_t mac, const gnutls_datum_t * key, const gnutls_datum_t * salt, unsigned iter_count, void * output, size_t length);

the mac algorithm used internally
the initial keying material
the salt
the iteration count
the output value
the desired length of the output key

This function will derive a variable length keying material from a password according to PKCS 5 PBKDF2.

Zero or a negative error code on error.
