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 DSA_sign(3).

       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
               BIGNUM *priv_key;       // private key x
               BIGNUM *pub_key;        // public key y = g^x
               // ...

       In public keys, priv_key is NULL.

       Note that DSA keys may use non-standard DSA_METHOD implementations,
 either directly or by the use of ENGINE modules.
 In some cases (eg. an ENGINE providing support for
       hardware-embedded keys), these BIGNUM values will not be
       used by the implementation or may be used for alternative
       data storage. For this reason, applications should generally
 avoid using DSA structure elements directly and
       instead use API functions to query or modify keys.
