NAME

       EVP_PKEY_verify_recover_init, EVP_PKEY_verify_recover - recover signature using a public
       key algorithm

SYNOPSIS

        #include <openssl/evp.h>

        int EVP_PKEY_verify_recover_init(EVP_PKEY_CTX *ctx);
        int EVP_PKEY_verify_recover(EVP_PKEY_CTX *ctx,
                                    unsigned char *rout, size_t *routlen,
                                    const unsigned char *sig, size_t siglen);

DESCRIPTION

       The EVP_PKEY_verify_recover_init() function initializes a public key algorithm context
       using key pkey for a verify recover operation.

       The EVP_PKEY_verify_recover() function recovers signed data using ctx. The signature is
       specified using the sig and siglen parameters. If rout is NULL then the maximum size of
       the output buffer is written to the routlen parameter. If rout is not NULL then before the
       call the routlen parameter should contain the length of the rout buffer, if the call is
       successful recovered data is written to rout and the amount of data written to routlen.

NOTES

       Normally an application is only interested in whether a signature verification operation
       is successful in those cases the EVP_verify() function should be used.

       Sometimes however it is useful to obtain the data originally signed using a signing
       operation. Only certain public key algorithms can recover a signature in this way (for
       example RSA in PKCS padding mode).

       After the call to EVP_PKEY_verify_recover_init() algorithm specific control operations can
       be performed to set any appropriate parameters for the operation.

       The function EVP_PKEY_verify_recover() can be called more than once on the same context if
       several operations are performed using the same parameters.

RETURN VALUES

       EVP_PKEY_verify_recover_init() and EVP_PKEY_verify_recover() return 1 for success and 0 or
       a negative value for failure. In particular a return value of -2 indicates the operation
       is not supported by the public key algorithm.

EXAMPLES

       Recover digest originally signed using PKCS#1 and SHA256 digest:

        #include <openssl/evp.h>
        #include <openssl/rsa.h>

        EVP_PKEY_CTX *ctx;
        unsigned char *rout, *sig;
        size_t routlen, siglen;
        EVP_PKEY *verify_key;

        /*
         * NB: assumes verify_key, sig and siglen are already set up
         * and that verify_key is an RSA public key
         */
        ctx = EVP_PKEY_CTX_new(verify_key, NULL /* no engine */);
        if (!ctx)
            /* Error occurred */
        if (EVP_PKEY_verify_recover_init(ctx) <= 0)
            /* Error */
        if (EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_rsa_padding(ctx, RSA_PKCS1_PADDING) <= 0)
            /* Error */
        if (EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_signature_md(ctx, EVP_sha256()) <= 0)
            /* Error */

        /* Determine buffer length */
        if (EVP_PKEY_verify_recover(ctx, NULL, &routlen, sig, siglen) <= 0)
            /* Error */

        rout = OPENSSL_malloc(routlen);

        if (!rout)
            /* malloc failure */

        if (EVP_PKEY_verify_recover(ctx, rout, &routlen, sig, siglen) <= 0)
            /* Error */

        /* Recovered data is routlen bytes written to buffer rout */
