        BN_BLINDING *BN_BLINDING_new(const BIGNUM *A, const BIGNUM *Ai,
               BIGNUM *mod);

               BN_CTX *ctx);
        unsigned long BN_BLINDING_get_thread_id(const BN_BLINDING *);
        void BN_BLINDING_set_thread_id(BN_BLINDING *, unsigned long);
        unsigned long BN_BLINDING_get_flags(const BN_BLINDING *);
        void BN_BLINDING_set_flags(BN_BLINDING *, unsigned long);
        BN_BLINDING *BN_BLINDING_create_param(BN_BLINDING *b,
               const BIGNUM *e, BIGNUM *m, BN_CTX *ctx,
               int (*bn_mod_exp)(BIGNUM *r, const BIGNUM *a, const BIGNUM *p,
                                 const BIGNUM *m, BN_CTX *ctx, BN_MONT_CTX *m_ctx),
               BN_MONT_CTX *m_ctx);

DESCRIPTION
       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.

       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 amoung 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_set_thread_id() and BN_BLINDING_get_thread_id() set and get
       the "thread id" value of the BN_BLINDING structure, a field provided to
       users of BN_BLINDING structure to help them provide proper locking if
       needed for multi-threaded use. The "thread id" of a newly allocated
       BN_BLINDING structure is zero.

       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).

RETURN VALUES
       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 occured.

       BN_BLINDING_get_thread_id() returns the thread id (a unsigned long
       value) or 0 if not set.

       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.
