RSA_sign(3)				     OpenSSL				      RSA_sign(3)

NAME
       RSA_sign, RSA_verify - RSA signatures

LIBRARY
       libcrypto, -lcrypto

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/rsa.h>

	int RSA_sign(int type, const unsigned char *m, unsigned int m_len,
	   unsigned char *sigret, unsigned int *siglen, RSA *rsa);

	int RSA_verify(int type, const unsigned char *m, unsigned int m_len,
	   unsigned char *sigbuf, unsigned int siglen, RSA *rsa);

DESCRIPTION
       RSA_sign() signs the message digest m of size m_len using the private key rsa as specified
       in PKCS #1 v2.0. It stores the signature in sigret and the signature size in siglen.
       sigret must point to RSA_size(rsa) bytes of memory.  Note that PKCS #1 adds meta-data,
       placing limits on the size of the key that can be used.	See RSA_private_encrypt(3) for
       lower-level operations.

       type denotes the message digest algorithm that was used to generate m. It usually is one
       of NID_sha1, NID_ripemd160 and NID_md5; see objects(3) for details. If type is
       NID_md5_sha1, an SSL signature (MD5 and SHA1 message digests with PKCS #1 padding and no
       algorithm identifier) is created.

       RSA_verify() verifies that the signature sigbuf of size siglen matches a given message
       digest m of size m_len. type denotes the message digest algorithm that was used to
       generate the signature.	rsa is the signer's public key.

RETURN VALUES
       RSA_sign() returns 1 on success, 0 otherwise.  RSA_verify() returns 1 on successful
       verification, 0 otherwise.

       The error codes can be obtained by ERR_get_error(3).

BUGS
       Certain signatures with an improper algorithm identifier are accepted for compatibility
       with SSLeay 0.4.5 :-)
