NAME         top

       gnutls_crypto_register_digest - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/crypto.h>

       int gnutls_crypto_register_digest(gnutls_digest_algorithm_t
       algorithm, int priority, gnutls_digest_init_func init,
       gnutls_digest_hash_func hash, gnutls_digest_output_func output,
       gnutls_digest_deinit_func deinit, gnutls_digest_fast_func

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_digest_algorithm_t algorithm
                   is the gnutls digest identifier

       int priority
                   is the priority of the algorithm

       gnutls_digest_init_func init
                   A function which initializes the digest

       gnutls_digest_hash_func hash
                   Perform the hash operation

       gnutls_digest_output_func output
                   Provide the output of the digest

       gnutls_digest_deinit_func deinit
                   A function which deinitializes the digest

       gnutls_digest_fast_func hash_fast
                   Perform the digest operation in one go

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will register a digest algorithm to be used by
       gnutls.  Any algorithm registered will override the included
       algorithms and by convention kernel implemented algorithms have
       priority of 90 and CPU-assisted of 80.  The algorithm with the
       lowest priority will be used by gnutls.

DEPRECATED         top

       since 3.7.0 it is no longer possible to override cipher

RETURNS         top

       GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, otherwise a negative error code.
