NAME
EVP_PKEY_set1_RSA, EVP_PKEY_set1_DSA, EVP_PKEY_set1_DH, EVP_PKEY_set1_EC_KEY, EVP_PKEY_get1_RSA, EVP_PKEY_get1_DSA, EVP_PKEY_get1_DH, EVP_PKEY_get1_EC_KEY, EVP_PKEY_assign_RSA, EVP_PKEY_assign_DSA, EVP_PKEY_assign_DH, EVP_PKEY_assign_EC_KEY, EVP_PKEY_type - EVP_PKEY assignment functions.
SYNOPSIS
#include <openssl/evp.h> int EVP_PKEY_set1_RSA(EVP_PKEY *pkey,RSA *key); int EVP_PKEY_set1_DSA(EVP_PKEY *pkey,DSA *key); int EVP_PKEY_set1_DH(EVP_PKEY *pkey,DH *key); int EVP_PKEY_set1_EC_KEY(EVP_PKEY *pkey,EC_KEY *key); RSA *EVP_PKEY_get1_RSA(EVP_PKEY *pkey); DSA *EVP_PKEY_get1_DSA(EVP_PKEY *pkey); DH *EVP_PKEY_get1_DH(EVP_PKEY *pkey); EC_KEY *EVP_PKEY_get1_EC_KEY(EVP_PKEY *pkey); int EVP_PKEY_assign_RSA(EVP_PKEY *pkey,RSA *key); int EVP_PKEY_assign_DSA(EVP_PKEY *pkey,DSA *key); int EVP_PKEY_assign_DH(EVP_PKEY *pkey,DH *key); int EVP_PKEY_assign_EC_KEY(EVP_PKEY *pkey,EC_KEY *key); int EVP_PKEY_type(int type);
DESCRIPTION
EVP_PKEY_set1_RSA(), EVP_PKEY_set1_DSA(), EVP_PKEY_set1_DH() and EVP_PKEY_set1_EC_KEY() set the key referenced by pkey to key. EVP_PKEY_get1_RSA(), EVP_PKEY_get1_DSA(), EVP_PKEY_get1_DH() and EVP_PKEY_get1_EC_KEY() return the referenced key in pkey or NULL if the key is not of the correct type. EVP_PKEY_assign_RSA() EVP_PKEY_assign_DSA(), EVP_PKEY_assign_DH() and EVP_PKEY_assign_EC_KEY() also set the referenced key to key however these use the supplied key internally and so key will be freed when the parent pkey is freed. EVP_PKEY_type() returns the type of key corresponding to the value type. The type of a key can be obtained with EVP_PKEY_type(pkey->type). The return value will be EVP_PKEY_RSA, EVP_PKEY_DSA, EVP_PKEY_DH or EVP_PKEY_EC for the corresponding key types or NID_undef if the key type is unassigned.
NOTES
In accordance with the OpenSSL naming convention the key obtained from or assigned to the pkey using the 1 functions must be freed as well as pkey. EVP_PKEY_assign_RSA() EVP_PKEY_assign_DSA(), EVP_PKEY_assign_DH() EVP_PKEY_assign_EC_KEY() are implemented as macros.
RETURN VALUES
EVP_PKEY_set1_RSA(), EVP_PKEY_set1_DSA(), EVP_PKEY_set1_DH() and EVP_PKEY_set1_EC_KEY() return 1 for success or 0 for failure. EVP_PKEY_get1_RSA(), EVP_PKEY_get1_DSA(), EVP_PKEY_get1_DH() and EVP_PKEY_get1_EC_KEY() return the referenced key or NULL if an error occurred. EVP_PKEY_assign_RSA() EVP_PKEY_assign_DSA(), EVP_PKEY_assign_DH() and EVP_PKEY_assign_EC_KEY() return 1 for success and 0 for failure.
