DSA_size(3)                         OpenSSL                        DSA_size(3)



NAME
       DSA_size, DSA_bits, DSA_security_bits - get DSA signature size, key
       bits or security bits

LIBRARY
       libcrypto, -lcrypto

SYNOPSIS
        #include <openssl/dsa.h>

        int DSA_size(const DSA *dsa);
        int DSA_bits(const DSA *dsa);
        int DSA_security_bits(const DSA *dsa);

DESCRIPTION
       DSA_size() returns the maximum size of an ASN.1 encoded DSA signature
       for key dsa in bytes. It can be used to determine how much memory must
       be allocated for a DSA signature.

       dsa->q must not be NULL.

       DSA_bits() returns the number of bits in key dsa: this is the number of
       bits in the p parameter.

       DSA_security_bits() returns the number of security bits of the given
       dsa key. See BN_security_bits(3).

RETURN VALUES
       DSA_size() returns the signature size in bytes.

       DSA_bits() returns the number of bits in the key.
