gnutls_x509_crq_sign - Man Page

API function


#include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_crq_sign(gnutls_x509_crq_t crq, gnutls_x509_privkey_t key);


gnutls_x509_crq_t crq

should contain a gnutls_x509_crq_t type

gnutls_x509_privkey_t key

holds a private key


This function is the same a gnutls_x509_crq_sign2() with no flags, and an appropriate hash algorithm. The hash algorithm used may vary between versions of GnuTLS, and it is tied to the security level of the issuer's public key.

A known limitation of this function is, that a newly-signed request will not be fully functional (e.g., for signature verification), until it is exported an re-imported.


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