+=head1 NAME
+
+DSA_do_sign, DSA_do_verify - raw DSA signature operations
+
+=head1 SYNOPSIS
+
+ #include <openssl/dsa.h>
+
+ DSA_SIG *DSA_do_sign(const unsigned char *dgst, int dlen, DSA *dsa);
+
+ int DSA_do_verify(const unsigned char *dgst, int dgst_len,
+ DSA_SIG *sig, DSA *dsa);
+
+=head1 DESCRIPTION
+
+DSA_do_sign() computes a digital signature on the B<len> byte message
+digest B<dgst> using the private key B<dsa> and returns it in a
+newly allocated B<DSA_SIG> structure.
+
+L<DSA_sign_setup(3)> may be used to precompute part
+of the signing operation in case signature generation is
+time-critical.
+
+DSA_do_verify() verifies that the signature B<sig> matches a given
+message digest B<dgst> of size B<len>. B<dsa> is the signer's public
+key.
+
+=head1 RETURN VALUES
+
+DSA_do_sign() returns the signature, NULL on error. DSA_do_verify()
+returns 1 for a valid signature, 0 for an incorrect signature and -1
+on error. The error codes can be obtained by
+L<ERR_get_error(3)>.
