RSA_new(3SSL)                       OpenSSL                      RSA_new(3SSL)



NAME
       RSA_new, RSA_free - allocate and free RSA objects

SYNOPSIS
        #include <openssl/rsa.h>

        RSA * RSA_new(void);

        void RSA_free(RSA *rsa);

DESCRIPTION
       RSA_new() allocates and initializes an RSA structure. It is equivalent
       to calling RSA_new_method(NULL).

       RSA_free() frees the RSA structure and its components. The key is
       erased before the memory is returned to the system.

RETURN VALUES
       If the allocation fails, RSA_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.

       RSA_free() returns no value.

SEE ALSO
       ERR_get_error(3), rsa(3), RSA_generate_key(3), RSA_new_method(3)

HISTORY
       RSA_new() and RSA_free() are available in all versions of SSLeay and
       OpenSSL.
