EVP_PKEY_ASN1_METHOD is a structure which holds a set of ASN.1 conversion, printing and information methods for a specific public key algorithm.

There are two places where the EVP_PKEY_ASN1_METHOD objects are stored: one is a built-in array representing the standard methods for different algorithms, and the other one is a stack of user-defined application-specific methods, which can be manipulated by using ().

The methods are the underlying implementations of a particular public key algorithm present by the EVP_PKEY object.

int (*pub_decode)(EVP_PKEY *pk, X509_PUBKEY *pub)
int (*pub_encode)(X509_PUBKEY *pub, const EVP_PKEY *pk)

Decode and encode X509_PUBKEY ASN.1 parameters to and from pk. These methods must return 0 on error and 1 on success. They are called by X509_PUBKEY_get(3) and X509_PUBKEY_set(3).

int (*pub_cmp)(const EVP_PKEY *a, const EVP_PKEY *b)

Compare two public keys. This method must return 1 when the keys are equal and 0 otherwise. It is called by EVP_PKEY_cmp(3).

int (*pub_print)(BIO *out, const EVP_PKEY *pkey, int indent, ASN1_PCTX *pctx);

Print a public key in humanly readable text to out, indented indent spaces. This method must return 0 on error and 1 on success. It is called by EVP_PKEY_print_public(3).

int (*priv_decode)(EVP_PKEY *pk, const PKCS8_PRIV_KEY_INFO *p8inf)
int (*priv_encode)(PKCS8_PRIV_KEY_INFO *p8, const EVP_PKEY *pk)

Decode and encode PKCS8_PRIV_KEY_INFO form private key to and from pk. These methods must return 0 on error, 1 on success. They are called by EVP_PKCS82PKEY(3) and EVP_PKEY2PKCS8(3).

int (*priv_print)(BIO *out, const EVP_PKEY *pkey, int indent, ASN1_PCTX *pctx);

Print a private key in humanly readable text to out, indented indent spaces. This method must return 0 on error and 1 on success. It is called by EVP_PKEY_print_private(3).

int (*pkey_size)(const EVP_PKEY *pk)

Returns the key size in bytes. This method is called by EVP_PKEY_size(3).

int (*pkey_bits)(const EVP_PKEY *pk)

Returns the key size in bits. This method is called by EVP_PKEY_bits(3).

int (*param_decode)(EVP_PKEY *pkey, const unsigned char **pder, int derlen);
int (*param_encode)(const EVP_PKEY *pkey, unsigned char **pder);

Decode and encode DER formatted parameters to and from pk. These methods must return 0 on error and 1 on success. They are called by ().

int (*param_missing)(const EVP_PKEY *pk)

Return 0 if a key parameter is missing or 1 otherwise. This method is called by EVP_PKEY_missing_parameters(3).

int (*param_copy)(EVP_PKEY *to, const EVP_PKEY *from)

Copy key parameters from from to to. This method must return 0 on error and 1 on success. It is called by EVP_PKEY_copy_parameters(3).

int (*param_cmp)(const EVP_PKEY *a, const EVP_PKEY *b)

Compare the parameters of the keys a and b. This method must return 1 when the keys are equal, 0 when not equal, and a negative number on error. It is called by EVP_PKEY_cmp_parameters(3).

int (*param_print)(BIO *out, const EVP_PKEY *pkey, int indent, ASN1_PCTX *pctx);

Print the private key parameters in humanly readable text to out, indented indent spaces. This method must return 0 on error and 1 on success. It is called by EVP_PKEY_print_params(3).

void (*pkey_free)(EVP_PKEY *pkey)

Free the internals of pkey. This method is called by EVP_PKEY_free(3), EVP_PKEY_set_type(3), (), and EVP_PKEY_assign(3).

int (*pkey_ctrl)(EVP_PKEY *pkey, int op, long arg1, void *arg2);

Add extra algorithm specific control. This method is called by EVP_PKEY_get_default_digest_nid(3), (), (), and other functions.

() creates and returns a new EVP_PKEY_ASN1_METHOD object, and associates the given id, flags, pem_str and info. id is a NID, pem_str is the PEM type string, info is a descriptive string. If ASN1_PKEY_SIGPARAM_NULL is set in flags, the signature algorithm parameters are given the type V_ASN1_NULL by default, otherwise they will be given the type V_ASN1_UNDEF (i.e. the parameter is omitted). See X509_ALGOR_set0(3) for more information.

() copies an EVP_PKEY_ASN1_METHOD object from src to dst. This function is not thread safe, it is recommended to only use this when initializing the application.

() frees an existing EVP_PKEY_ASN1_METHOD pointed by ameth.

() adds ameth to the user defined stack of methods unless another EVP_PKEY_ASN1_METHOD with the same NID is already there. This function is not thread safe, it is recommended to only use this when initializing the application.

() creates an alias with the NID to for the EVP_PKEY_ASN1_METHOD with NID from unless another EVP_PKEY_ASN1_METHOD with the same NID is already added. This function is not thread safe, it's recommended to only use this when initializing the application.

(), (), (), (), and () set the diverse methods of the given EVP_PKEY_ASN1_METHOD object.

EVP_PKEY_asn1_new() returns a pointer to an EVP_PKEY_ASN1_METHOD object or NULL on error.

EVP_PKEY_asn1_add0() and EVP_PKEY_asn1_add_alias() return 0 on error or 1 on success.

EVP_PKEY_asn1_get_count(3), EVP_PKEY_new(3), X509_PUBKEY_new(3)

These functions first appeared in OpenSSL 1.0.0 and have been available since OpenBSD 4.9.
