=head1 NAME
EVP_PKEY_get_default_digest_nid, EVP_PKEY_get_default_digest_name
- get default signature digest
#include <openssl/evp.h>
int EVP_PKEY_get_default_digest_name(EVP_PKEY *pkey,
char *mdname, size_t mdname_sz);
int EVP_PKEY_get_default_digest_nid(EVP_PKEY *pkey, int *pnid);
EVP_PKEY_get_default_digest_name() fills in the default message digest
name for the public key signature operations associated with key
I<pkey> into I<mdname>, up to at most I<mdname_sz> bytes including the
ending NUL byte. The name could be C<"UNDEF">, signifying that no digest
should be used.
EVP_PKEY_get_default_digest_nid() sets I<pnid> to the default message
digest NID for the public key signature operations associated with key
I<pkey>. Note that some signature algorithms (i.e. Ed25519 and Ed448)
do not use a digest during signing. In this case I<pnid> will be set
to NID_undef. This function is only reliable for legacy keys, which
are keys with a B<EVP_PKEY_ASN1_METHOD>; these keys have typically
been loaded from engines, or created with L<EVP_PKEY_assign_RSA(3)> or
=head1 NOTES
For all current standard OpenSSL public key algorithms SHA256 is returned.
EVP_PKEY_get_default_digest_name() and EVP_PKEY_get_default_digest_nid()
both return 1 if the message digest is advisory (that is other digests
can be used) and 2 if it is mandatory (other digests can not be used).
They return 0 or a negative value for failure. In particular a return
value of -2 indicates the operation is not supported by the public key
