gnutls_x509_crt_privkey_sign(3)	    gnutls     gnutls_x509_crt_privkey_sign(3)

NAME
       gnutls_x509_crt_privkey_sign - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<gnutls/abstract.h>

       int	   gnutls_x509_crt_privkey_sign(gnutls_x509_crt_t	  crt,
       gnutls_x509_crt_t  issuer,  gnutls_privkey_t   issuer_key,   gnutls_di-
       gest_algorithm_t	dig, unsigned int flags);

ARGUMENTS
       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_privkey_t	issuer_key
		   holds the issuer's private key

       gnutls_digest_algorithm_t dig
		   The	message	 digest	 to  use,  GNUTLS_DIG_SHA256 is	a safe
		   choice

       unsigned	int flags
		   must	be 0

DESCRIPTION
       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.

       A known limitation of this function is, that a newly-signed certificate
       will  not be fully functional (e.g., for	signature verification), until
       it is exported an re-imported.

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