DSA_generate_key(3)                 OpenSSL                DSA_generate_key(3)



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(1,8) 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(8,n) codes
       can be obtained by ERR_get_error(3).

SEE ALSO
       dsa(1,3)(3), ERR_get_error(3), rand(1,3)(3), DSA_generate_parameters(3)

HISTORY
       DSA_generate_key() is available since SSLeay 0.8.
