.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.IX Header "DESCRIPTION"
\&\fBDSA_sign()\fR computes a digital signature on the \fBlen\fR byte message
digest \fBdgst\fR using the private key \fBdsa\fR and places its \s-1ASN.1 DER\s0
encoding at \fBsigret\fR. The length of the signature is places in
*\fBsiglen\fR. \fBsigret\fR must point to DSA_size(\fBdsa\fR) bytes of memory.
.PP
\&\fBDSA_sign_setup()\fR is defined only for backward binary compatibility and
should not be used.
Since OpenSSL 1.1.0 the \s-1DSA\s0 type is opaque and the output of
\&\fBDSA_sign_setup()\fR cannot be used anyway: calling this function will only
cause overhead, and does not affect the actual signature
(pre\-)computation.
.PP
\&\fBDSA_verify()\fR verifies that the signature \fBsigbuf\fR of size \fBsiglen\fR
matches a given message digest \fBdgst\fR of size \fBlen\fR.
\&\fBdsa\fR is the signer's public key.
.PP
The \fBtype\fR parameter is ignored.
.PP
The random generator must be seeded when \fBDSA_sign()\fR (or \fBDSA_sign_setup()\fR)
is called.
If the automatic seeding or reseeding of the OpenSSL \s-1CSPRNG\s0 fails due to
external circumstances (see \s-1\fBRAND\s0\fR\|(7)), the operation will fail.
.SH "RETURN VALUES"
.IX Header "RETURN VALUES"
\&\fBDSA_sign()\fR and \fBDSA_sign_setup()\fR return 1 on success, 0 on error.
\&\fBDSA_verify()\fR returns 1 for a valid signature, 0 for an incorrect
signature and \-1 on error. The error codes can be obtained by
\&\fBERR_get_error\fR\|(3).
