MirOS Manual: RSA_sign(3), RSA_verify(3)


RSA_SIGN(3)                  OpenSSL                  RSA_SIGN(3)

NAME

     RSA_sign, RSA_verify - RSA signatures

SYNOPSIS

      #include <openssl/rsa.h>

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

      int RSA_verify(int type, 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.

     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 gen-
     erate 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 :-)

CONFORMING TO

     SSL, PKCS #1 v2.0

HISTORY

     RSA_sign() and RSA_verify() are available in all versions of
     SSLeay and OpenSSL.
