X509_new(3)                         OpenSSL                        X509_new(3)



NAME
       X509_new, X509_free - X509 certificate ASN1 allocation functions

LIBRARY
       libcrypto, -lcrypto

SYNOPSIS
        X509 *X509_new(void);
        void X509_free(X509 *a);


DESCRIPTION
       The X509 ASN1 allocation routines, allocate and free an X509 structure,
       which represents an X509 certificate.

       X509_new() allocates and initializes a X509 structure.

       X509_free() frees up the X509 structure a.

RETURN VALUES
       If the allocation fails, X509_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.

       X509_free() returns no value.

SEE ALSO
       ERR_get_error(3), d2i_X509(3)

HISTORY
       X509_new() and X509_free() are available in all versions of SSLeay and
       OpenSSL.
