NAME         top

       gnutls_x509_privkey_sign_hash - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/compat.h>

       int gnutls_x509_privkey_sign_hash(gnutls_x509_privkey_t key, const
       gnutls_datum_t * hash, gnutls_datum_t * signature);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_x509_privkey_t key
                   a key

       const gnutls_datum_t * hash
                   holds the data to be signed

       gnutls_datum_t * signature
                   will contain newly allocated signature

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will sign the given hash using the private key. Do not
       use this function directly unless you know what it is. Typical
       signing requires the data to be hashed and stored in special formats
       (e.g. BER Digest-Info for RSA).

       This API is provided only for backwards compatibility, and thus
       restricted to RSA, DSA and ECDSA key types. For other key types
       please use gnutls_privkey_sign_hash() and gnutls_privkey_sign_data().

RETURNS         top

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

       Deprecated in: 2.12.0
