NAME
       DSA - Digital Signature Algorithm

DESCRIPTION
       DSA  is  the Digital Signature Algorithm specified in(1,8) [DSS], a standard
       for public-key based digital signatures from NIST,  the  U.S.  National
       Institute for Standards and Technology.  DSA employs SHA(5).

       For a description of DSS, its history(1,3,n,1 builtins) and security, see [AC2].
