Detailed Description

template<class H>
class DSA2< H >

DSA signature scheme.

Template Parameters
HHashTransformation derived class

The class is named DSA2 instead of DSA for backwards compatibility because DSA was a non-template class.

DSA default method GenerateRandom uses a 2048-bit modulus and a 224-bit subgoup by default. The modulus can be changed using the following code:

  DSA::PrivateKey privateKey;
  privateKey.GenerateRandomWithKeySize(prng, 2048);

The subgroup order can be changed using the following code:

  AlgorithmParameters params = MakeParameters
    (Name::ModulusSize(), 2048)
    (Name::SubgroupOrderSize(), 256);
  DSA::PrivateKey privateKey;
  privateKey.GenerateRandom(prng, params);
