a certificate of type gnutls_x509_crt_t
is the certificate of the certificate issuer
holds the issuer's private key
The message digest to use, GNUTLS_DIG_SHA256 is a
unsigned int flags
must be 0
This function will sign the certificate with the issuer's 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.
A known limitation of this function is, that a newly-signed
certificate will not be fully functional (e.g., for signature
verification), until it is exported an re-imported.
After GnuTLS 3.6.1 the value of dig may be GNUTLS_DIG_UNKNOWN,
and in that case, a suitable but reasonable for the key algorithm
will be selected.
