NAME
       PKCS7_sign_add_signer - add a signer PKCS7 signed data structure.

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/pkcs7.h>

	PKCS7_SIGNER_INFO *PKCS7_sign_add_signer(PKCS7 *p7, X509 *signcert, EVP_PKEY *pkey, const EVP_MD *md, int flags);

DESCRIPTION
       PKCS7_sign_add_signer() adds a signer with certificate signcert and private key pkey using
       message digest md to a PKCS7 signed data structure p7.

       The PKCS7 structure should be obtained from an initial call to PKCS7_sign() with the flag
       PKCS7_PARTIAL set or in the case or re-signing a valid PKCS7 signed data structure.

       If the md parameter is NULL then the default digest for the public key algorithm will be
       used.

       Unless the PKCS7_REUSE_DIGEST flag is set the returned PKCS7 structure is not complete and
       must be finalized either by streaming (if applicable) or a call to PKCS7_final().

NOTES
       The main purpose of this function is to provide finer control over a PKCS#7 signed data
       structure where the simpler PKCS7_sign() function defaults are not appropriate. For
       example if multiple signers or non default digest algorithms are needed.

       Any of the following flags (ored together) can be passed in the flags parameter.

       If PKCS7_REUSE_DIGEST is set then an attempt is made to copy the content digest value from
       the PKCS7 struture: to add a signer to an existing structure.  An error occurs if a
       matching digest value cannot be found to copy. The returned PKCS7 structure will be valid
       and finalized when this flag is set.

       If PKCS7_PARTIAL is set in addition to PKCS7_REUSE_DIGEST then the PKCS7_SIGNER_INO
       structure will not be finalized so additional attributes can be added. In this case an
       explicit call to PKCS7_SIGNER_INFO_sign() is needed to finalize it.

       If PKCS7_NOCERTS is set the signer's certificate will not be included in the PKCS7
       structure, the signer's certificate must still be supplied in the signcert parameter
       though. This can reduce the size of the signature if the signers certificate can be
       obtained by other means: for example a previously signed message.

       The signedData structure includes several PKCS#7 autenticatedAttributes including the
       signing time, the PKCS#7 content type and the supported list of ciphers in an
       SMIMECapabilities attribute. If PKCS7_NOATTR is set then no authenticatedAttributes will
       be used. If PKCS7_NOSMIMECAP is set then just the SMIMECapabilities are omitted.

       If present the SMIMECapabilities attribute indicates support for the following algorithms:
       triple DES, 128 bit RC2, 64 bit RC2, DES and 40 bit RC2. If any of these algorithms is
       disabled then it will not be included.

       PKCS7_sign_add_signers() returns an internal pointer to the PKCS7_SIGNER_INFO structure
       just added, this can be used to set additional attributes before it is finalized.

RETURN VALUES
       PKCS7_sign_add_signers() returns an internal pointer to the PKCS7_SIGNER_INFO structure
       just added or NULL if an error occurs.
