In the description here, TYPE is used a placeholder for any of the OpenSSL datatypes listed in CRYPTO_get_ex_new_index(3).

These functions handle application-specific data for OpenSSL data structures.

TYPE_get_ex_new_index() is a macro that calls CRYPTO_get_ex_new_index() with the correct index value.

TYPE_set_ex_data() is a function that calls CRYPTO_set_ex_data() with an offset into the opaque exdata part of the TYPE object.

TYPE_get_ex_data() is a function that calls CRYPTO_get_ex_data() with an offset into the opaque exdata part of the TYPE object.

For compatibility with previous releases, the exdata index of zero is reserved for "application data." There are two convenience functions for this. TYPE_set_app_data() is a macro that invokes TYPE_set_ex_data() with idx set to zero. TYPE_get_app_data() is a macro that invokes TYPE_get_ex_data() with idx set to zero.


TYPE_get_ex_new_index() returns a new index on success or -1 on error.

TYPE_set_ex_data() returns 1 on success or 0 on error.

TYPE_get_ex_data() returns the application data or NULL if an error occurred.




The ENGINE_get_ex_new_index(), ENGINE_set_ex_data() and ENGINE_get_ex_data() functions were deprecated in OpenSSL 3.0.
