EVP_PKEY_verify_recover(3)	    OpenSSL	    EVP_PKEY_verify_recover(3)

       EVP_PKEY_verify_recover_init, EVP_PKEY_verify_recover - recover
       signature using a public key algorithm

	#include <openssl/evp.h>

	int EVP_PKEY_verify_recover_init(EVP_PKEY_CTX *ctx);
	int EVP_PKEY_verify_recover(EVP_PKEY_CTX *ctx,
			       unsigned char *rout, size_t *routlen,
			       const unsigned char *sig, size_t siglen);

       The EVP_PKEY_verify_recover_init() function initializes a public key
       algorithm context using key pkey for a verify recover operation.

       The EVP_PKEY_verify_recover() function recovers signed data using ctx.
       The signature is specified using the sig and siglen parameters. If rout
       is NULL then the maximum size of the output buffer is written to the
       routlen parameter. If rout is not NULL then before the call the routlen
       parameter should contain the length of the rout buffer, if the call is
       successful recovered data is written to rout and the amount of data
       written to routlen.

       Normally an application is only interested in whether a signature
       verification operation is successful in those cases the EVP_verify()
       function should be used.

       Sometimes however it is useful to obtain the data originally signed
       using a signing operation. Only certain public key algorithms can
       recover a signature in this way (for example RSA in PKCS padding mode).

       After the call to EVP_PKEY_verify_recover_init() algorithm specific
       control operations can be performed to set any appropriate parameters
       for the operation.

       The function EVP_PKEY_verify_recover() can be called more than once on
       the same context if several operations are performed using the same

       EVP_PKEY_verify_recover_init() and EVP_PKEY_verify_recover() return 1
       for success and 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.

       Recover digest originally signed using PKCS#1 and SHA256 digest:

	#include <openssl/evp.h>
	#include <openssl/rsa.h>

	unsigned char *rout, *sig;
	size_t routlen, siglen;
	EVP_PKEY *verify_key;
	/* NB: assumes verify_key, sig and siglen are already set up
	 * and that verify_key is an RSA public key
	ctx = EVP_PKEY_CTX_new(verify_key);
	if (!ctx)
	       /* Error occurred */
	if (EVP_PKEY_verify_recover_init(ctx) <= 0)
	       /* Error */
	if (EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_rsa_padding(ctx, RSA_PKCS1_PADDING) <= 0)
	       /* Error */
	if (EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_signature_md(ctx, EVP_sha256()) <= 0)
	       /* Error */

	/* Determine buffer length */
	if (EVP_PKEY_verify_recover(ctx, NULL, &routlen, sig, siglen) <= 0)
	       /* Error */

	rout = OPENSSL_malloc(routlen);

	if (!rout)
	       /* malloc failure */

	if (EVP_PKEY_verify_recover(ctx, rout, &routlen, sig, siglen) <= 0)
	       /* Error */

	/* Recovered data is routlen bytes written to buffer rout */

       EVP_PKEY_CTX_new(3), EVP_PKEY_encrypt(3), EVP_PKEY_decrypt(3),
       EVP_PKEY_sign(3), EVP_PKEY_verify(3), EVP_PKEY_derive(3)

       These functions were first added to OpenSSL 1.0.0.
