=head1 NAME
DSA_sign, DSA_sign_setup, DSA_verify - DSA signatures
#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_sign(int type, const unsigned char *dgst, int len,
unsigned char *sigret, unsigned int *siglen, DSA *dsa);
int DSA_sign_setup(DSA *dsa, BN_CTX *ctx, BIGNUM **kinvp, BIGNUM **rp);
int DSA_verify(int type, const unsigned char *dgst, int len,
unsigned char *sigbuf, int siglen, DSA *dsa);
All of the functions described on this page are deprecated.
Applications should instead use L<EVP_PKEY_sign_init(3)>, L<EVP_PKEY_sign(3)>,
L<EVP_PKEY_verify_init(3)> and L<EVP_PKEY_verify(3)>.
DSA_sign() computes a digital signature on the B<len> byte message
digest B<dgst> using the private key B<dsa> and places its ASN.1 DER
encoding at B<sigret>. The length of the signature is places in
*B<siglen>. B<sigret> must point to DSA_size(B<dsa>) bytes of memory.
DSA_sign_setup() is defined only for backward binary compatibility and
should not be used.
Since OpenSSL 1.1.0 the DSA type is opaque and the output of
DSA_sign_setup() cannot be used anyway: calling this function will only
cause overhead, and does not affect the actual signature
DSA_verify() verifies that the signature B<sigbuf> of size B<siglen>
matches a given message digest B<dgst> of size B<len>.
B<dsa> is the signer's public key.
The B<type> parameter is ignored.
The random generator must be seeded when DSA_sign() (or DSA_sign_setup())
is called.
If the automatic seeding or reseeding of the OpenSSL CSPRNG fails due to
external circumstances (see L<RAND(7)>), the operation will fail.
DSA_sign() and DSA_sign_setup() return 1 on success, 0 on error.
DSA_verify() returns 1 for a valid signature, 0 for an incorrect
signature and -1 on error. The error codes can be obtained by
US Federal Information Processing Standard FIPS186-4 (Digital Signature
Standard, DSS), ANSI X9.30
