DSA_dup_DH

NAME

DSA_dup_DH - create a DH structure out of DSA structure

SYNOPSIS

 #include <openssl/dsa.h>

The following functions have been deprecated since OpenSSL 3.0, and can be hidden entirely by defining OPENSSL_API_COMPAT with a suitable version value, see openssl_user_macros(7):

 DH *DSA_dup_DH(const DSA *r);

DESCRIPTION

The function described on this page is deprecated. There is no direct replacement, applications should use the EVP_PKEY APIs for Diffie-Hellman operations.

DSA_dup_DH() duplicates DSA parameters/keys as DH parameters/keys. q is lost during that conversion, but the resulting DH parameters contain its length.

RETURN VALUES

DSA_dup_DH() returns the new DH structure, and NULL on error. The error codes can be obtained by ERR_get_error(3).

NOTE

Be careful to avoid small subgroup attacks when using this.

HISTORY

This function was deprecated in OpenSSL 3.0.
