NAME         top

       gnutls_privkey_sign_data2 - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/abstract.h>

       int gnutls_privkey_sign_data2(gnutls_privkey_t signer,
       gnutls_sign_algorithm_t algo, unsigned int flags, const
       gnutls_datum_t * data, gnutls_datum_t * signature);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_privkey_t signer
                   Holds the key

       gnutls_sign_algorithm_t algo
                   The signature algorithm used

       unsigned int flags
                   Zero or one of gnutls_privkey_flags_t

       const gnutls_datum_t * data
                   holds the data to be signed

       gnutls_datum_t * signature
                   will contain the signature allocated with

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will sign the given data using the specified
       signature algorithm. This function is an enhancement of
       gnutls_privkey_sign_data(), as it allows utilizing a alternative
       signature algorithm where possible (e.g, use an RSA key with

RETURNS         top

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