DH_NEW(3) Library Functions Manual DH_NEW(3)

DH_new, DH_freeallocate and free DH objects

#include <openssl/dh.h>


DH_free(DH *dh);

The DH functions implement the Diffie-Hellman key agreement protocol.

() allocates and initializes a DH structure.

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

If the allocation fails, DH_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.

DH_new() and DH_free() are available in all versions of SSLeay and OpenSSL.
