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
               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.

       DSA conforms to US Federal Information Processing Standard
       FIPS 186 (Digital Signature Standard, DSS), ANSI X9.30
