NAME         top

       gnutls_privkey_sign_hash - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/abstract.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         top

       gnutls_privkey_t signer
                   Holds the signer's key

       gnutls_digest_algorithm_t hash_algo
                   The hash algorithm used

       unsigned int flags
                   Zero or one of gnutls_privkey_flags_t

       const gnutls_datum_t * hash_data
                   holds the data to be signed

       gnutls_datum_t * signature
                   will contain newly allocated signature

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will sign the given hashed data using a signature
       algorithm 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.

       You may use gnutls_pubkey_get_preferred_hash_algorithm() to determine
       the hash algorithm.

       The flags may be GNUTLS_PRIVKEY_SIGN_FLAG_TLS1_RSA or
       GNUTLS_PRIVKEY_SIGN_FLAG_RSA_PSS.  In the former case this function
       will ignore  hash_algo and perform a raw PKCS1 signature, and in the
       latter an RSA-PSS signature will be generated.

       Note that, not all algorithm support signing already hashed data.
       When signing with Ed25519, gnutls_privkey_sign_data() should be used.

RETURNS         top

       On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a negative
       error value.

SINCE         top

       2.12.0
