NAME

gnutls_privkey_sign_hash2 - API function  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gnutls/abstract.h>

int gnutls_privkey_sign_hash2(gnutls_privkey_t signer, gnutls_sign_algorithm_t 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_sign_algorithm_t algo
The signature algorithm used
unsigned int flags
Zero or one of gnutls_privkey_flags_t
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 the specified signature algorithm. This function is an enhancement of gnutls_privkey_sign_hash(), as it allows utilizing a alternative signature algorithm where possible (e.g, use an RSA key with RSA-PSS).

The flags may be GNUTLS_PRIVKEY_SIGN_FLAG_TLS1_RSA. In that case this function will ignore hash_algo and perform a raw PKCS1 signature. Note that this flag is supported since 3.6.9.

Note also that, not all algorithm support signing already hashed data. When signing with Ed25519, gnutls_privkey_sign_data2() should be used instead.  

RETURNS

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

SINCE

3.6.0
