NAME         top

       gnutls_x509_crq_sign - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_crq_sign(gnutls_x509_crq_t crq, gnutls_x509_privkey_t

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_x509_crq_t crq
                   should contain a gnutls_x509_crq_t type

       gnutls_x509_privkey_t key
                   holds a private key

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function is the same a gnutls_x509_crq_sign2() with no flags,
       and an appropriate hash algorithm. The hash algorithm used may vary
       between versions of GnuTLS, and it is tied to the security level of
       the issuer's public key.

       A known limitation of this function is, that a newly-signed request
       will not be fully functional (e.g., for signature verification),
       until it is exported an re-imported.

RETURNS         top

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