=head1 NAME

SSL_CTX_set1_sigalgs, SSL_set1_sigalgs, SSL_CTX_set1_sigalgs_list,
SSL_set1_sigalgs_list, SSL_CTX_set1_client_sigalgs,
SSL_set1_client_sigalgs, SSL_CTX_set1_client_sigalgs_list,
SSL_set1_client_sigalgs_list - set supported signature algorithms

=head1 SYNOPSIS

 #include <openssl/ssl.h>

 long SSL_CTX_set1_sigalgs(SSL_CTX *ctx, const int *slist, long slistlen);
 long SSL_set1_sigalgs(SSL *ssl, const int *slist, long slistlen);
 long SSL_CTX_set1_sigalgs_list(SSL_CTX *ctx, const char *str);
 long SSL_set1_sigalgs_list(SSL *ssl, const char *str);

 long SSL_CTX_set1_client_sigalgs(SSL_CTX *ctx, const int *slist, long slistlen);
 long SSL_set1_client_sigalgs(SSL *ssl, const int *slist, long slistlen);
 long SSL_CTX_set1_client_sigalgs_list(SSL_CTX *ctx, const char *str);
 long SSL_set1_client_sigalgs_list(SSL *ssl, const char *str);

=head1 DESCRIPTION

SSL_CTX_set1_sigalgs() and SSL_set1_sigalgs() set the supported signature
algorithms for B<ctx> or B<ssl>. The array B<slist> of length B<slistlen>
must consist of pairs of NIDs corresponding to digest and public key
algorithms.

SSL_CTX_set1_sigalgs_list() and SSL_set1_sigalgs_list() set the supported
signature algorithms for B<ctx> or B<ssl>. The B<str> parameter
must be a null terminated string consisting of a colon separated list of
elements, where each element is either a combination of a public key
algorithm and a digest separated by B<+>, or a TLS 1.3-style named
SignatureScheme such as rsa_pss_pss_sha256.

SSL_CTX_set1_client_sigalgs(), SSL_set1_client_sigalgs(),
SSL_CTX_set1_client_sigalgs_list() and SSL_set1_client_sigalgs_list() set
signature algorithms related to client authentication, otherwise they are
identical to SSL_CTX_set1_sigalgs(), SSL_set1_sigalgs(),
SSL_CTX_set1_sigalgs_list() and SSL_set1_sigalgs_list().

All these functions are implemented as macros. The signature algorithm
parameter (integer array or string) is not freed: the application should
free it, if necessary.

=head1 NOTES

If an application wishes to allow the setting of signature algorithms
as one of many user configurable options it should consider using the more
flexible SSL_CONF API instead.

The signature algorithms set by a client are used directly in the supported
signature algorithm in the client hello message.

The supported signature algorithms set by a server are not sent to the
client but are used to determine the set of shared signature algorithms
and (if server preferences are set with SSL_OP_CIPHER_SERVER_PREFERENCE)
their order.

The client authentication signature algorithms set by a server are sent
in a certificate request message if client authentication is enabled,
otherwise they are unused.

Similarly client authentication signature algorithms set by a client are
used to determined the set of client authentication shared signature
algorithms.

Signature algorithms will neither be advertised nor used if the security level
prohibits them (for example SHA1 if the security level is 4 or more).

Currently the NID_md5, NID_sha1, NID_sha224, NID_sha256, NID_sha384 and
NID_sha512 digest NIDs are supported and the public key algorithm NIDs
EVP_PKEY_RSA, EVP_PKEY_RSA_PSS, EVP_PKEY_DSA and EVP_PKEY_EC.

The short or long name values for digests can be used in a string (for
example "MD5", "SHA1", "SHA224", "SHA256", "SHA384", "SHA512") and
the public key algorithm strings "RSA", "RSA-PSS", "DSA" or "ECDSA".

The TLS 1.3 signature scheme names (such as "rsa_pss_pss_sha256") can also
be used with the B<_list> forms of the API.

The use of MD5 as a digest is strongly discouraged due to security weaknesses.

=head1 EXAMPLES

Set supported signature algorithms to SHA256 with ECDSA and SHA256 with RSA
using an array:

 const int slist[] = {NID_sha256, EVP_PKEY_EC, NID_sha256, EVP_PKEY_RSA};

 SSL_CTX_set1_sigalgs(ctx, slist, 4);

Set supported signature algorithms to SHA256 with ECDSA and SHA256 with RSA
using a string:

 SSL_CTX_set1_sigalgs_list(ctx, "ECDSA+SHA256:RSA+SHA256");

=head1 RETURN VALUES

All these functions return 1 for success and 0 for failure.
