EVP_SIGNATURE_fetch() fetches the implementation for the given
B<algorithm> from any provider offering it, within the criteria given
by the B<properties>.
The algorithm will be one offering functions for performing signature related
tasks such as signing and verifying.
See L<crypto(7)/ALGORITHM FETCHING> for further information.
The returned value must eventually be freed with EVP_SIGNATURE_free().
EVP_SIGNATURE_free() decrements the reference count for the B<EVP_SIGNATURE>
structure. Typically this structure will have been obtained from an earlier call
to EVP_SIGNATURE_fetch(). If the reference count drops to 0 then the
structure is freed.
EVP_SIGNATURE_up_ref() increments the reference count for an B<EVP_SIGNATURE>
EVP_SIGNATURE_is_a() returns 1 if I<signature> is an implementation of an
algorithm that's identifiable with I<name>, otherwise 0.
EVP_SIGNATURE_get0_provider() returns the provider that I<signature> was
fetched from.
EVP_SIGNATURE_do_all_provided() traverses all SIGNATURE implemented by all
activated roviders in the given library context I<libctx>, and for each of the
implementations, calls the given function I<fn> with the implementation method
and the given I<arg> as argument.
EVP_SIGNATURE_get0_name() returns the algorithm name from the provided
implementation for the given I<signature>. Note that the I<signature> may have
multiple synonyms associated with it. In this case the first name from the
algorithm definition is returned. Ownership of the returned string is retained
by the I<signature> object and should not be freed by the caller.
EVP_SIGNATURE_names_do_all() traverses all names for I<signature>, and calls
I<fn> with each name and I<data>.
EVP_SIGNATURE_get0_description() returns a description of the I<signature>,
meant for display and human consumption. The description is at the
discretion of the I<signature> implementation.
EVP_SIGNATURE_gettable_ctx_params() and EVP_SIGNATURE_settable_ctx_params()
return a constant B<OSSL_PARAM> array that describes the names and types of key
parameters that can be retrieved or set by a signature algorithm using
L<EVP_PKEY_CTX_get_params(3)> and L<EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_params(3)>.
EVP_SIGNATURE_fetch() returns a pointer to an B<EVP_SIGNATURE> for success
or B<NULL> for failure.
EVP_SIGNATURE_up_ref() returns 1 for success or 0 otherwise.
EVP_SIGNATURE_names_do_all() returns 1 if the callback was called for all names.
A return value of 0 means that the callback was not called for any names.
EVP_SIGNATURE_gettable_ctx_params() and EVP_SIGNATURE_settable_ctx_params()
return a constant B<OSSL_PARAM> array or NULL on error.
