NAME

       RSA_new, RSA_free - allocate and free RSA objects

SYNOPSIS

        #include <openssl/rsa.h>

        RSA * RSA_new(void);

        void RSA_free(RSA *rsa);

DESCRIPTION

       RSA_new() allocates and initializes an RSA structure. It is equivalent to calling
       RSA_new_method(NULL).

       RSA_free() frees the RSA structure and its components. The key is erased before the memory
       is returned to the system.

RETURN VALUES

       If the allocation fails, RSA_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.

       RSA_free() returns no value.

SEE ALSO

       ERR_get_error(3), rsa(3), RSA_generate_key(3), RSA_new_method(3)

HISTORY

       RSA_new() and RSA_free() are available in all versions of SSLeay and OpenSSL.
