Thanks for your answer. As a matter of fact I made a big
confusion. I thought that the example


was only doing authentication -- and NOT encryption. Therefore
I was wondering where I could find this negotiated key to use
it to initialize an encryption method for encrypted send()/recv().
But (of course!) GNU TLS already does everything for me, meaing
that the send()/recv()'s in the above server and client example
*are* already encrypted. -- I did not get this at first. Sorry
for this.
