gnutls_pk_bits_to_sec_param - API function

#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

gnutls_sec_param_t gnutls_pk_bits_to_sec_param(gnutls_pk_algorithm_t algo, unsigned int bits);

is a public key algorithm
is the number of bits

This is the inverse of gnutls_sec_param_to_pk_bits(). Given an algorithm and the number of bits, it will return the security parameter. This is a rough indication.

The security parameter.
