NAME

       gnutls_x509_crt_sign2 - API function

SYNOPSIS

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int     gnutls_x509_crt_sign2(gnutls_x509_crt_t     crt,     gnutls_x509_crt_t     issuer,
       gnutls_x509_privkey_t issuer_key, gnutls_digest_algorithm_t dig, unsigned int flags);

ARGUMENTS

       gnutls_x509_crt_t crt
                   a certificate of type gnutls_x509_crt_t

       gnutls_x509_crt_t issuer
                   is the certificate of the certificate issuer

       gnutls_x509_privkey_t issuer_key
                   holds the issuer's private key

       gnutls_digest_algorithm_t dig
                   The message digest to use, GNUTLS_DIG_SHA1 is a safe choice

       unsigned int flags
                   must be 0

DESCRIPTION

       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.

RETURNS

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