=head1 NAME
DSA_generate_key - generate DSA key pair
#include <openssl/dsa.h>
The following functions have been deprecated since OpenSSL 3.0, and can be
hidden entirely by defining B<OPENSSL_API_COMPAT> with a suitable version value,
see L<openssl_user_macros(7)>:
int DSA_generate_key(DSA *a);
All of the functions described on this page are deprecated.
Applications should instead use L<EVP_PKEY_keygen_init(3)> and
L<EVP_PKEY_keygen(3)> as described in L<EVP_PKEY-DSA(7)>.
DSA_generate_key() expects B<a> to contain DSA parameters. It generates
a new key pair and stores it in B<a-E<gt>pub_key> and B<a-E<gt>priv_key>.
The random generator must be seeded prior to calling DSA_generate_key().
If the automatic seeding or reseeding of the OpenSSL CSPRNG fails due to
external circumstances (see L<RAND(7)>), the operation will fail.
DSA_generate_key() returns 1 on success, 0 otherwise.
The error codes can be obtained by L<ERR_get_error(3)>.
