DSA_new(3)				     OpenSSL				       DSA_new(3)

NAME
       DSA_new, DSA_free - allocate and free DSA objects

LIBRARY
       libcrypto, -lcrypto

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
       openssl_dsa(3), ERR_get_error(3), DSA_generate_parameters(3), DSA_generate_key(3)

HISTORY
       DSA_new() and DSA_free() are available in all versions of SSLeay and OpenSSL.
