gnutls_anon_free_server_credentials - Linux


gnutls_anon_free_server_credentials deallocates server credentials that were previously initialized using gnutls_anon_allocate_server_credentials. It is part of the GNU Transport Layer Security (GnuTLS) library for secure network communication.


void gnutls_anon_free_server_credentials(gnutls_anon_server_credentials_t creds);


| Option | Description |
| creds | The server credentials object to be deallocated. |


#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int main() {
  gnutls_anon_server_credentials_t creds;

  // Initialize credentials

  // Use credentials...

  // Deallocate credentials

  return 0;

Common Issues

  • Invalid creds parameter: Ensure that a valid server credentials object is passed to the function.
  • Memory leaks: If the server credentials are not deallocated using this function, they will remain in memory until the program terminates.


gnutls_anon_free_server_credentials can be used in combination with other GnuTLS functions to establish and manage TLS connections. For example, it can be used together with gnutls_init, gnutls_certificate_set_verify_flags, and gnutls_handshake to create a secure TLS server.
