NAME
       DSA_generate_key	- generate DSA key pair

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/dsa.h>

	int DSA_generate_key(DSA *a);

DESCRIPTION
       DSA_generate_key() expects a to contain DSA parameters. It generates a
       new key pair and	stores it in a->pub_key	and a->priv_key.

       The PRNG	must be	seeded prior to	calling	DSA_generate_key().

RETURN VALUES
       DSA_generate_key() returns 1 on success,	0 otherwise.  The error	codes
       can be obtained by ERR_get_error(3).
