RAND_cleanup.3ossl - Man Page

erase the PRNG state

Synopsis

 #include <openssl/rand.h>

Deprecated since OpenSSL 1.1.0, can be hidden entirely by defining OPENSSL_API_COMPAT with a suitable version value, see openssl_user_macros(7):

 void RAND_cleanup(void);

Description

Prior to OpenSSL 1.1.0, RAND_cleanup() released all resources used by the PRNG.  As of version 1.1.0, it does nothing and should not be called, since no explicit initialisation or de-initialisation is necessary. See OPENSSL_init_crypto(3).

Return Values

RAND_cleanup() returns no value.
