gnutls_x509_crt_sign2(3) API function


#include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_crt_sign2(gnutls_x509_crt_t crt, gnutls_x509_crt_t issuer, gnutls_x509_privkey_t issuer_key, gnutls_digest_algorithm_t dig, unsigned int flags);


gnutls_x509_crt_t crt
a certificate of type gnutls_x509_crt_t
gnutls_x509_crt_t issuer
is the certificate of the certificate issuer
gnutls_x509_privkey_t issuer_key
holds the issuer's private key
gnutls_digest_algorithm_t dig
The message digest to use, GNUTLS_DIG_SHA1 is a safe choice
unsigned int flags
must be 0


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

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


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