gnutls_srp_base64_encode — API function


#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>
int gnutls_srp_base64_encode( const gnutls_datum_t * data,

contain the raw data

char * result

the place where base64 data will be copied

size_t * result_size

holds the size of the result


This function will convert the given data to printable data, using the base64 encoding, as used in the libsrp. This is the encoding used in SRP password files. If the provided buffer is not long enough GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER is returned.

Warning! This base64 encoding is not the "standard" encoding, so do not use it for non−SRP purposes.


GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER if the buffer given is not long enough, or 0 on success.
