gnutls_x509_crq_sign2(3) API function


#include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_crq_sign2(gnutls_x509_crq_t crq, gnutls_x509_privkey_t key, gnutls_digest_algorithm_t dig, unsigned int flags);


gnutls_x509_crq_t crq
should contain a gnutls_x509_crq_t type
gnutls_x509_privkey_t key
holds a private key
gnutls_digest_algorithm_t dig
The message digest to use, i.e., GNUTLS_DIG_SHA1
unsigned int flags
must be 0


This function will sign the certificate request with a private key. This must be the same key as the one used in gnutls_x509_crt_set_key() since a certificate request is self signed.

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


GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, otherwise a negative error code. GNUTLS_E_ASN1_VALUE_NOT_FOUND is returned if you didn't set all information in the certificate request (e.g., the version using gnutls_x509_crq_set_version()).
