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).
