NAME

       DSA_new, DSA_free - allocate and free DSA objects

SYNOPSIS

        #include <openssl/dsa.h>

        DSA* DSA_new(void);

        void DSA_free(DSA *dsa);

DESCRIPTION

       DSA_new() allocates and initializes a DSA structure. It is equivalent to calling
       DSA_new_method(NULL).

       DSA_free() frees the DSA structure and its components. The values are erased before the
       memory is returned to the system.  If dsa is NULL nothing is done.

RETURN VALUES

       If the allocation fails, DSA_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_free() returns no value.
