DSA_new, DSA_free - allocate and free DSA objects SYNOPSIS
#include <openssl/dsa.h> DSA* DSA_new(void); void DSA_free(DSA *dsa); DESCRIPTION
DSA_new() allocates and initializes a DSA structure. It is equivalent to calling DSA_new_method(NULL). DSA_free() frees the DSA structure and its components. The values are erased before the memory is returned to the system. RETURN VALUES
If the allocation fails, DSA_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. DSA_free() returns no value. SEE ALSO

DSA_new() and DSA_free() are available in all versions of SSLeay and OpenSSL. 1.0.1e 2013-02-11 DSA_new(3SSL)

These functions implement the Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA). The generation of shared DSA parameters is described in DSA_generate_parameters(3); DSA_generate_key(3) describes how to generate a signature key. Signature generation and verification are described in DSA_sign(3). The DSA structure consists of several BIGNUM components. struct { BIGNUM *p; // prime number (public) BIGNUM *q; // 160-bit subprime, q | p-1 (public) BIGNUM *g; // generator of subgroup (public) BIGNUM *priv_key; // private key x BIGNUM *pub_key; // public key y = g^x // ... } DSA; In public keys, priv_key is NULL. Note that DSA keys may use non-standard DSA_METHOD implementations, either directly or by the use of ENGINE modules. In some cases (eg. an ENGINE providing support for hardware-embedded keys), these BIGNUM values will not be used by the implementation or may be used for alternative data storage. For this reason, applications should generally avoid using DSA structure elements directly and instead use API functions to query or modify keys. CONFORMING TO
