       gnutls_x509_privkey_sign_data - API function

       #include <gnutls/compat.h>

       int	 gnutls_x509_privkey_sign_data(gnutls_x509_privkey_t	  key,
       gnutls_digest_algorithm_t   digest,   unsigned	int    flags,	 const
       gnutls_datum_t * data, void * signature, size_t * signature_size);

       gnutls_x509_privkey_t key
		   Holds the key

       gnutls_digest_algorithm_t digest
		   should be MD5 or SHA1

       unsigned int flags
		   should be 0 for now

       const gnutls_datum_t * data
		   holds the data to be signed

       void * signature
		   will contain the signature

       size_t * signature_size
		   holds  the  size  of signature (and will be replaced by the
		   new size)

       This function will sign the given data using a signature algorithm sup‐
       ported  by  the	private	 key.  Signature  algorithms  are  always used
       together with a hash functions.	Different hash functions may  be  used
       for the RSA algorithm, but only SHA-1 for the DSA keys.

       If  the	buffer	provided is not long enough to hold the output, then *
       signature_size is  updated  and	GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER  will  be

       Use  gnutls_x509_crt_get_preferred_hash_algorithm()  to	determine  the
       hash algorithm.

       On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0)	 is  returned,	otherwise  a  negative
       error value.

       Use gnutls_privkey_sign_data().
