gnutls_x509_crl_privkey_sign(3) API function


#include <gnutls/abstract.h>

int gnutls_x509_crl_privkey_sign(gnutls_x509_crl_t crl, gnutls_x509_crt_t issuer, gnutls_privkey_t issuer_key, gnutls_digest_algorithm_t dig, unsigned int flags);


gnutls_x509_crl_t crl
should contain a gnutls_x509_crl_t type
gnutls_x509_crt_t issuer
is the certificate of the certificate issuer
gnutls_privkey_t issuer_key
holds the issuer's private key
gnutls_digest_algorithm_t dig
The message digest to use. GNUTLS_DIG_SHA1 is the safe choice unless you know what you're doing.
unsigned int flags
must be 0


This function will sign the CRL with the issuer's private key, and will copy the issuer's information into the CRL.

This must be the last step in a certificate CRL since all the previously set parameters are now signed.


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

Since 2.12.0
