gnutls_pubkey_get_preferred_hash_algorithm - API function
int gnutls_pubkey_get_preferred_hash_algorithm(gnutls_pubkey_t key, gnutls_digest_algorithm_t * hash, unsigned int * mand);
- gnutls_pubkey_t key
Holds the certificate
- gnutls_digest_algorithm_t * hash
The result of the call with the hash algorithm used for signature
- unsigned int * mand
If non zero it means that the algorithm MUST use this hash. May be NULL.
This function will read the certificate and return the appropriate digest
algorithm to use for signing with this certificate. Some certificates (i.e.
DSA might not be able to sign without the preferred algorithm).
To get the signature algorithm instead of just the hash use gnutls_pk_to_sign()
with the algorithm of the certificate/key and the provided hash .
the 0 if the hash algorithm is found. A negative error code is
returned on error.
