NAME

       gnutls_x509_privkey_sign_hash - API function

SYNOPSIS

       #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

       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

       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

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

       Deprecated in: 2.12.0
