DSA_new(3)                          OpenSSL                         DSA_new(3)



NAME
       DSA_new, DSA_free - allocate and free DSA objects

LIBRARY
       libcrypto, -lcrypto

SYNOPSIS
        #include <openssl/dsa.h>

        DSA* DSA_new(void);

        void DSA_free(DSA *dsa);


DESCRIPTION
       DSA_new() allocates and initializes a DSA structure. It is equivalent
       to calling DSA_new_method(NULL).

       DSA_free() frees the DSA structure and its components. The values are
       erased before the memory is returned to the system.

RETURN VALUES
       If the allocation fails, DSA_new() returns NULL and sets an error code
       that can be obtained by ERR_get_error(3). Otherwise it returns a
       pointer to the newly allocated structure.

       DSA_free() returns no value.

SEE ALSO
       openssl_dsa(3), ERR_get_error(3), DSA_generate_parameters(3), DSA_gen-
       erate_key(3)

HISTORY
       DSA_new() and DSA_free() are available in all versions of SSLeay and
       OpenSSL.
