DSA_SIG_new(void);

void
DSA_SIG_free(DSA_SIG *sig);

int
DSA_SIG_set0(DSA_SIG *sig, BIGNUM *r, BIGNUM *s);

DSA_SIG_new() allocates an empty DSA_SIG structure.

DSA_SIG_free() frees the DSA_SIG structure and its components. The values are erased before the memory is returned to the system. If sig is a NULL pointer, no action occurs.

DSA_SIG_get0() retrieves internal pointers to the r and s values contained in sig.

The r and s values can be set by calling DSA_SIG_set0(). Calling this function transfers the memory management of the values to sig, and therefore they should not be freed by the caller.

If the allocation fails, DSA_SIG_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_SIG_set0() returns 1 on success or 0 on failure.
