NAME
       gnutls_privkey_sign_data	- API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<gnutls/abstract.h>

       int gnutls_privkey_sign_data(gnutls_privkey_t signer, gnutls_digest_al-
       gorithm_t hash,	unsigned  int  flags,  const  gnutls_datum_t  *	 data,
       gnutls_datum_t *	signature);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_privkey_t	signer
		   Holds the key

       gnutls_digest_algorithm_t hash
		   should be a digest algorithm

       unsigned	int flags
		   Zero	or one of gnutls_privkey_flags_t

       const gnutls_datum_t * data
		   holds the data to be	signed

       gnutls_datum_t *	signature
		   will	contain	the signature allocated	with gnutls_malloc()

DESCRIPTION
       This function will sign the given data using a signature	algorithm sup-
       ported by the private key. Signature algorithms	are  always  used  to-
       gether with a hash functions.  Different	hash functions may be used for
       the RSA algorithm, but only the SHA family for the DSA keys.

       You may use gnutls_pubkey_get_preferred_hash_algorithm()	 to  determine
       the hash	algorithm.

RETURNS
       On  success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise	a negative er-
       ror value.

SINCE
       2.12.0
