NAME
       X509_new, X509_free - X509 certificate ASN1 allocation functions

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/x509.h>

	X509 *X509_new(void);
	void X509_free(X509 *a);

DESCRIPTION
       The X509 ASN1 allocation routines, allocate and free an X509 structure, which represents
       an X509 certificate.

       X509_new() allocates and initializes a X509 structure.

       X509_free() frees up the X509 structure a.

RETURN VALUES
       If the allocation fails, X509_new() returns NULL and sets an error code that can be
       obtained by ERR_get_error(3).  Otherwise it returns a pointer to the newly allocated
       structure.

       X509_free() returns no value.

SEE ALSO
       ERR_get_error(3), d2i_X509(3)
