63 Signature algorithm variants

65 Note that most signature algorithms follow a process of first hashing the
66 plaintext data to be signed, creating a payload format that wraps the hash
67 value (among other things), and then signing the payload with the private
68 key. So, for example, an EMSA3(SHA1) signature outputted by QCA cannot be
69 verified by merely performing RSA and SHA1 operations (e.g.
70 "openssl rsautl -verify" and comparing with sha1sum), because that would not
71 take the EMSA3 payload format into consideration.

287 Normally you would just test if the capability is present, however
288 for PKey, you also need to test which types of keys are available.
289 So if you want to figure out if RSA keys are supported, you need to
290 do something like:

298{
299 // there is RSA key support
300}
301 \endcode
302
303 To make things a bit more complex, supportedTypes() only
304 checks for basic functionality. If you want to check that
305 you can do operations with PEM or DER (eg toPEM(), fromPEM(), and
306 the equivalent DER and PEMfile operations, plus anything else
307 that uses them, including the constructor form that takes a
308 fileName), then you need to check for supportedIOTypes() instead.

319
320 If you are using PKey DER or PEM operations, then you need
321 to check for appropriate support using this method. For example,
322 if you want to check if you can export or import an RSA key, then
323 you need to do something like:

325if(!QCA::isSupported("pkey") ||
326 !QCA::PKey::supportedIOTypes().contains(QCA::PKey::RSA))

331{
332 // there is RSA key IO support
333}

335
336 Note that if you only want to check for basic functionality
337 (ie not PEM or DER import/export), then you can use
338 supportedTypes(). There is no need to use both - if the key type
339 is supported for IO, then is also supported for basic operations.
