sign(p1, p2) public

To sign the String data, digest, an instance of OpenSSL::Digest, must be provided. The return value is again a String containing the signature. A PKeyError is raised should errors occur. Any previous state of the Digest instance is irrelevant to the signature outcome, the digest instance is reset to its initial state during the operation.

Example

data = 'Sign me!'
digest = OpenSSL::Digest::SHA256.new
pkey = OpenSSL::PKey::RSA.new(2048)
signature = pkey.sign(digest, data)
