gnutls_x509_crq_privkey_sign — API function

Synopsis

#include <gnutls/abstract.h>

int gnutls_x509_crq_privkey_sign(gnutls_x509_crq_t crq, gnutls_privkey_t key, gnutls_digest_algorithm_t dig, unsigned int flags);

Arguments

gnutls_x509_crq_t crq
should contain a gnutls_x509_crq_t type
gnutls_privkey_t key
holds a private key
gnutls_digest_algorithm_t dig
The message digest to use, i.e., GNUTLS_DIG_SHA1
unsigned int flags
must be 0

Description

This function will sign the certificate request with a private key. This must be the same key as the one used in gnutls_x509_crt_set_key() since a certificate request is self signed.

This must be the last step in a certificate request generation since all the previously set parameters are now signed.

Returns

GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, otherwise a negative error code. GNUTLS_E_ASN1_VALUE_NOT_FOUND is returned if you didn't set all information in the certificate request (e.g., the version using gnutls_x509_crq_set_version()).

Since

2.12.0
