NAME

       DH_new, DH_free - allocate and free DH objects

SYNOPSIS

        #include <openssl/dh.h>

        DH* DH_new(void);

        void DH_free(DH *dh);

DESCRIPTION

       DH_new() allocates and initializes a DH structure.

       DH_free() frees the DH structure and its components. The values are erased before the
       memory is returned to the system.

RETURN VALUES

       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_free() returns no value.

SEE ALSO

       dh(3), ERR_get_error(3), DH_generate_parameters(3), DH_generate_key(3)

HISTORY

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