NAME gnutls_x509_crt_sign2 - API function

SYNOPSIS #include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_crt_sign2(gnutls_x509_crt_t crt, gnutls_x509_crt_t issuer, gnutls_x509_privkey_t issuer_key, gnutls_digest_algorithm_t dig, unsigned int flags);

ARGUMENTS gnutls_x509_crt_t crt a certificate of type gnutls_x509_crt_t

gnutls_x509_crt_t issuer is the certificate of the certificate issuer

gnutls_x509_privkey_t issuer_key holds the issuers private key

gnutls_digest_algorithm_t dig The message digest to use, GNUTLS_DIG_SHA1 is a safe choice

unsigned int flags must be 0

DESCRIPTION This function will sign the certificate with the issuers private key, and will copy the issuer s information into the certificate.

This must be the last step in a certificate generation since all the previously set parameters are now signed.

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