crypto_set_ex_data(3) [netbsd man page]

CRYPTO_set_ex_data(3)						      OpenSSL						     CRYPTO_set_ex_data(3)

NAME
CRYPTO_set_ex_data, CRYPTO_get_ex_data - internal application specific data functions LIBRARY
libcrypto, -lcrypto SYNOPSIS
#include <openssl/crypto.h> int CRYPTO_set_ex_data(CRYPTO_EX_DATA *r, int idx, void *arg); void *CRYPTO_get_ex_data(CRYPTO_EX_DATA *r, int idx); DESCRIPTION
Several OpenSSL structures can have application specific data attached to them. These functions are used internally by OpenSSL to manipulate application specific data attached to a specific structure. These functions should only be used by applications to manipulate CRYPTO_EX_DATA structures passed to the new_func(), free_func() and dup_func() callbacks: as passed to RSA_get_ex_new_index() for example. CRYPTO_set_ex_data() is used to set application specific data, the data is supplied in the arg parameter and its precise meaning is up to the application. CRYPTO_get_ex_data() is used to retrieve application specific data. The data is returned to the application, this will be the same value as supplied to a previous CRYPTO_set_ex_data() call. RETURN VALUES
CRYPTO_set_ex_data() returns 1 on success or 0 on failure. CRYPTO_get_ex_data() returns the application data or 0 on failure. 0 may also be valid application data but currently it can only fail if given an invalid idx parameter. On failure an error code can be obtained from ERR_get_error(3). SEE ALSO
RSA_get_ex_new_index(3), DSA_get_ex_new_index(3), DH_get_ex_new_index(3) HISTORY
CRYPTO_set_ex_data() and CRYPTO_get_ex_data() have been available since SSLeay 0.9.0. 1.0.1i 2009-07-20 CRYPTO_set_ex_data(3)
