NAME gnutls_privkey_sign_hash - API function

SYNOPSIS #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_privkey_sign_hash(gnutls_privkey_t signer, gnutls_digest_algorithm_t hash_algo, unsigned int flags, const gnutls_datum_t * hash_data, gnutls_datum_t * signature);

ARGUMENTS gnutls_privkey_t signer Holds the signers key

gnutls_digest_algorithm_t hash_algo The hash algorithm used

unsigned int flags zero for now

const gnutls_datum_t * hash_data holds the data to be signed

gnutls_datum_t * signature will contain newly allocated signature

DESCRIPTION This function will sign the given hashed data using a signature algo- rithm supported by the private key. Signature algorithms are always used together with a hash functions. Different hash functions may be used for the RSA algorithm, but only SHA-XXX for the DSA keys.

Use gnutls_x509_crt_get_preferred_hash_algorithm() to determine the hash algorithm.

RETURNS On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS is returned, otherwise a negative error value.

SINCE 2.12.0
