DSA_GENERATE_KEY(3SSL) OpenSSL DSA_GENERATE_KEY(3SSL)

NAME

DSA_generate_key - generate DSA key pair

SYNOPSIS

 #include <openssl/dsa.h>
 int DSA_generate_key(DSA *a);

DESCRIPTION

DSA_generate_key() expects a to contain DSA parameters. It generates a new key pair and stores it in a->pub_key and a->priv_key.
The PRNG must be seeded prior to calling DSA_generate_key().

RETURN VALUE

DSA_generate_key() returns 1 on success, 0 otherwise. The error codes can be obtained by ERR_get_error(3).
