NAME
       DSA_generate_key - generate DSA key pair

LIBRARY
       libcrypto, -lcrypto

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

SEE ALSO
       openssl_dsa(3), ERR_get_error(3), openssl_rand(3), DSA_generate_parameters(3)

HISTORY
       DSA_generate_key() is available since SSLeay 0.8.
