NAME

gnutls_x509_crl_privkey_sign - API function

SYNOPSIS

#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);

ARGUMENTS

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_SHA256 is the safe choice unless you know what you're doing.
unsigned int flags
must be 0

DESCRIPTION

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.
A known limitation of this function is, that a newly-signed CRL will not be fully functional (e.g., for signature verification), until it is exported an re-imported.
After GnuTLS 3.6.1 the value of dig may be GNUTLS_DIG_UNKNOWN, and in that case, a suitable but reasonable for the key algorithm will be selected.

RETURNS

On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a negative error value.
Since 2.12.0
