NAME
DSA_generate_key - generate DSA key pair SYNOPSIS
#include <openssl/dsa.h> int DSA_generate_key(DSA *a); DESCRIPTION
DSA_generate_key() expects a to contain DSA parameters. It generates a new key pair and stores it in a->pub_key and a->priv_key. The PRNG must be seeded prior to calling DSA_generate_key(). RETURN VALUE
DSA_generate_key() returns 1 on success, 0 otherwise. The error codes can be obtained by ERR_get_error(3). SEE ALSO
dsa(3), ERR_get_error(3), rand(3), DSA_generate_parameters(3) HISTORY
DSA_generate_key() is available since SSLeay 0.8. 0.9.7d 2003-11-20 DSA_generate_key(3)

NAME
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)
