PROV_DSS Provider Type

This provider type is similar to PROV_RSA_SIG in that it only supports hashes and digital signatures, but the signature algorithm specified by the PROV_DSS provider type is the Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA).

The DSA algorithm was proposed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). A description of the algorithm can be found in many books on cryptography or from the following government reference:
