BN_BLINDING_new() allocates a new BN_BLINDING structure and copies the A and Ai values into the newly created BN_BLINDING object.

BN_BLINDING_free() frees the BN_BLINDING structure. If b is NULL, nothing is done.

BN_BLINDING_update() updates the BN_BLINDING parameters by squaring the A and Ai or, after specific number of uses and if the necessary parameters are set, by re-creating the blinding parameters.

BN_BLINDING_convert_ex() multiplies n with the blinding factor A. If r is not NULL a copy the inverse blinding factor Ai will be returned in r (this is useful if a RSA object is shared among several threads). BN_BLINDING_invert_ex() multiplies n with the inverse blinding factor Ai. If r is not NULL it will be used as the inverse blinding.

BN_BLINDING_convert() and BN_BLINDING_invert() are wrapper functions for BN_BLINDING_convert_ex() and BN_BLINDING_invert_ex() with r set to NULL.

BN_BLINDING_is_current_thread() returns whether the BN_BLINDING structure is owned by the current thread. This is to help users provide proper locking if needed for multi-threaded use.

BN_BLINDING_set_current_thread() sets the current thread as the owner of the BN_BLINDING structure.

BN_BLINDING_lock() locks the BN_BLINDING structure.

BN_BLINDING_unlock() unlocks the BN_BLINDING structure.

BN_BLINDING_get_flags() returns the BN_BLINDING flags. Currently there are two supported flags: BN_BLINDING_NO_UPDATE and BN_BLINDING_NO_RECREATE. BN_BLINDING_NO_UPDATE inhibits the automatic update of the BN_BLINDING parameters after each use and BN_BLINDING_NO_RECREATE inhibits the automatic re-creation of the BN_BLINDING parameters after a fixed number of uses (currently 32). In newly allocated BN_BLINDING objects no flags are set. BN_BLINDING_set_flags() sets the BN_BLINDING parameters flags.

BN_BLINDING_create_param() creates new BN_BLINDING parameters using the exponent e and the modulus m. bn_mod_exp and m_ctx can be used to pass special functions for exponentiation (normally BN_mod_exp_mont() and BN_MONT_CTX).


BN_BLINDING_new() returns the newly allocated BN_BLINDING structure or NULL in case of an error.

BN_BLINDING_update(), BN_BLINDING_convert(), BN_BLINDING_invert(), BN_BLINDING_convert_ex() and BN_BLINDING_invert_ex() return 1 on success and 0 if an error occurred.

BN_BLINDING_is_current_thread() returns 1 if the current thread owns the BN_BLINDING object, 0 otherwise.

BN_BLINDING_set_current_thread() doesn't return anything.

BN_BLINDING_lock(), BN_BLINDING_unlock() return 1 if the operation succeeded or 0 on error.

BN_BLINDING_get_flags() returns the currently set BN_BLINDING flags (a unsigned long value).

BN_BLINDING_create_param() returns the newly created BN_BLINDING parameters or NULL on error.


BN_BLINDING_thread_id() was first introduced in OpenSSL 1.0.0, and it deprecates BN_BLINDING_set_thread_id() and BN_BLINDING_get_thread_id().
