NAME

       gnutls_privkey_sign_hash - API function

SYNOPSIS

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_privkey_sign_hash(gnutls_privkey_t signer, gnutls_digest_algorithm_t hash_algo,
       unsigned int flags, const gnutls_datum_t * hash_data, gnutls_datum_t * signature);

ARGUMENTS

       gnutls_privkey_t signer
                   Holds the signer's key

       gnutls_digest_algorithm_t hash_algo
                   The hash algorithm used

       unsigned int flags
                   zero for now

       const gnutls_datum_t * hash_data
                   holds the data to be signed

       gnutls_datum_t * signature
                   will contain newly allocated signature

DESCRIPTION

       This function will sign the given hashed data using a signature algorithm supported by the
       private  key.  Signature  algorithms  are  always  used  together  with  a hash functions.
       Different hash functions may be used for the RSA algorithm, but only SHA-XXX for  the  DSA
       keys.

       Use gnutls_x509_crt_get_preferred_hash_algorithm() to determine the hash algorithm.

RETURNS

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

SINCE

       2.12.0
