DSA_SIZE(3)			    OpenSSL			   DSA_SIZE(3)

NAME
       DSA_size, DSA_bits, DSA_security_bits - get DSA signature size, key
       bits or security	bits

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/dsa.h>

	int DSA_size(const DSA *dsa);
	int DSA_bits(const DSA *dsa);
	int DSA_security_bits(const DSA	*dsa);

DESCRIPTION
       DSA_size() returns the maximum size of an ASN.1 encoded DSA signature
       for key dsa in bytes. It	can be used to determine how much memory must
       be allocated for	a DSA signature.

       dsa->q must not be NULL.

       DSA_bits() returns the number of	bits in	key dsa: this is the number of
       bits in the p parameter.

       DSA_security_bits() returns the number of security bits of the given
       dsa key.	See BN_security_bits(3).

RETURN VALUES
       DSA_size() returns the signature	size in	bytes.

       DSA_bits() returns the number of	bits in	the key.
