DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       These functions implement the Digital Signature Algorithm
       (DSA).  The generation of shared DSA parameters is
       described in DSA_generate_parameters(3); DSA_generate_key(3) describes how to generate a signature key. Signature
 generation and verification are described in

       The DSA structure consists of several BIGNUM components.

               BIGNUM *p;              // prime number (public)
               BIGNUM *q;              // 160-bit subprime, q | p-1 (public)
               BIGNUM *g;              // generator of subgroup (public)
               BIGNUM *priv_key;       // private key x
               BIGNUM *pub_key;        // public key y = g^x
               // ...

       In public keys, priv_key is NULL.
