DESCRIPTION

       A DH object contains the parameters p, q and g. Note that the q parameter is optional. It
       also contains a public key (pub_key) and (optionally) a private key (priv_key).

       The p, q and g parameters can be obtained by calling DH_get0_pqg().  If the parameters
       have not yet been set then *p, *q and *g will be set to NULL. Otherwise they are set to
       pointers to their respective values. These point directly to the internal representations
       of the values and therefore should not be freed directly.  Any of the out parameters p, q,
       and g can be NULL, in which case no value will be returned for that parameter.

       The p, q and g values can be set by calling DH_set0_pqg() and passing the new values for
       p, q and g as parameters to the function. Calling this function transfers the memory
       management of the values to the DH object, and therefore the values that have been passed
       in should not be freed directly after this function has been called. The q parameter may
       be NULL.

       To get the public and private key values use the DH_get0_key() function. A pointer to the
       public key will be stored in *pub_key, and a pointer to the private key will be stored in
       *priv_key. Either may be NULL if they have not been set yet, although if the private key
       has been set then the public key must be. The values point to the internal representation
       of the public key and private key values. This memory should not be freed directly.  Any
       of the out parameters pub_key and priv_key can be NULL, in which case no value will be
       returned for that parameter.

       The public and private key values can be set using DH_set0_key(). Either parameter may be
       NULL, which means the corresponding DH field is left untouched. As with DH_set0_pqg() this
       function transfers the memory management of the key values to the DH object, and therefore
       they should not be freed directly after this function has been called.

       Any of the values p, q, g, priv_key, and pub_key can also be retrieved separately by the
       corresponding function DH_get0_p(), DH_get0_q(), DH_get0_g(), DH_get0_priv_key(), and
       DH_get0_pub_key(), respectively.

       DH_set_flags() sets the flags in the flags parameter on the DH object.  Multiple flags can
       be passed in one go (bitwise ORed together). Any flags that are already set are left set.
       DH_test_flags() tests to see whether the flags passed in the flags parameter are currently
       set in the DH object. Multiple flags can be tested in one go. All flags that are currently
       set are returned, or zero if none of the flags are set. DH_clear_flags() clears the
       specified flags within the DH object.

       DH_get0_engine() returns a handle to the ENGINE that has been set for this DH object, or
       NULL if no such ENGINE has been set.

       The DH_get_length() and DH_set_length() functions get and set the optional length
       parameter associated with this DH object. If the length is non-zero then it is used,
       otherwise it is ignored. The length parameter indicates the length of the secret exponent
       (private key) in bits.

NOTES

       Values retrieved with DH_get0_key() are owned by the DH object used in the call and may
       therefore not be passed to DH_set0_key().  If needed, duplicate the received value using
       BN_dup() and pass the duplicate.  The same applies to DH_get0_pqg() and DH_set0_pqg().

RETURN VALUES

       DH_set0_pqg() and DH_set0_key() return 1 on success or 0 on failure.

       DH_get0_p(), DH_get0_q(), DH_get0_g(), DH_get0_priv_key(), and DH_get0_pub_key() return
       the respective value, or NULL if it is unset.

       DH_test_flags() returns the current state of the flags in the DH object.

       DH_get0_engine() returns the ENGINE set for the DH object or NULL if no ENGINE has been
       set.

       DH_get_length() returns the length of the secret exponent (private key) in bits, or zero
       if no such length has been explicitly set.
