DH_new(3)



NAME

DH_new, DH_free - allocate and free DH objects


SYNOPSIS

 #include <openssl/dh.h>
 DH* DH_new(void);
 void DH_free(DH *dh);


DESCRIPTION

DH_new() allocates and initializes a DH structure.

DH_free() frees the DH structure and its components. The values are erased before the memory is returned to the system.


RETURN VALUES

If the allocation fails, DH_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.

DH_free() returns no value.


SEE ALSO

HISTORY

DH_new() and DH_free() are available in all versions of SSLeay and OpenSSL.
