RAND_cleanup

NAME

RAND_cleanup - erase the PRNG state

SYNOPSIS

 #include <openssl/rand.h>

Deprecated since OpenSSL 1.1.0, can be hidden entirely by defining OPENSSL_API_COMPAT with a suitable version value, see openssl_user_macros(7):

 void RAND_cleanup(void)

DESCRIPTION

Prior to OpenSSL 1.1.0, RAND_cleanup() released all resources used by the PRNG. As of version 1.1.0, it does nothing and should not be called, since no explicit initialisation or de-initialisation is necessary. See OPENSSL_init_crypto(3).

RETURN VALUES

RAND_cleanup() returns no value.

HISTORY

RAND_cleanup() was deprecated in OpenSSL 1.1.0; do not use it. See OPENSSL_init_crypto(3)
