EVP_PKEY_get_default_digest_nidget default signature digest

#include <openssl/evp.h>

EVP_PKEY_get_default_digest_nid(EVP_PKEY *pkey, int *pnid);

The () function sets pnid to the default message digest NID for the public key signature operations associated with key pkey.

For all current standard OpenSSL public key algorithms, SHA1 is returned.

The EVP_PKEY_get_default_digest_nid() function returns 1 if the message digest is advisory (that is other digests can be used) and 2 if it is mandatory (other digests cannot be used). It returns 0 or a negative value for failure. In particular, a return value of -2 indicates the operation is not supported by the public key algorithm.
