SYNOPSIS

#include <gnutls/abstract.h>

int gnutls_pubkey_get_preferred_hash_algorithm(gnutls_pubkey_t key, gnutls_digest_algorithm_t * hash, unsigned int * mand);

ARGUMENTS

gnutls_pubkey_t key Holds the certificate
gnutls_digest_algorithm_t * hash The result of the call with the hash algorithm used for signature
unsigned int * mand If non zero it means that the algorithm MUST use this hash. May be NULL.

DESCRIPTION

This function will read the certificate and return the appropriate digest algorithm to use for signing with this certificate. Some certificates (i.e. DSA might not be able to sign without the preferred algorithm).

To get the signature algorithm instead of just the hash use gnutls_pk_to_sign() with the algorithm of the certificate/key and the provided hash .

RETURNS

the 0 if the hash algorithm is found. A negative error code is returned on error.

SINCE

2.12.0
