Description

The RSA_METHOD type is a structure used for the provision of custom RSA implementations. It provides a set of of functions used by OpenSSL for the implementation of the various RSA capabilities. See the rsa page for more information.

RSA_meth_new() creates a new RSA_METHOD structure. It should be given a unique name and a set of flags. The name should be a NULL terminated string, which will be duplicated and stored in the RSA_METHOD object. It is the callers responsibility to free the original string. The flags will be used during the construction of a new RSA object based on this RSA_METHOD. Any new RSA object will have those flags set by default.

RSA_meth_dup() creates a duplicate copy of the RSA_METHOD object passed as a parameter. This might be useful for creating a new RSA_METHOD based on an existing one, but with some differences.

RSA_meth_free() destroys an RSA_METHOD structure and frees up any memory associated with it.

RSA_meth_get0_name() will return a pointer to the name of this RSA_METHOD. This is a pointer to the internal name string and so should not be freed by the caller. RSA_meth_set1_name() sets the name of the RSA_METHOD to name. The string is duplicated and the copy is stored in the RSA_METHOD structure, so the caller remains responsible for freeing the memory associated with the name.

RSA_meth_get_flags() returns the current value of the flags associated with this RSA_METHOD. RSA_meth_set_flags() provides the ability to set these flags.

The functions RSA_meth_get0_app_data() and RSA_meth_set0_app_data() provide the ability to associate implementation specific data with the RSA_METHOD. It is the application's responsibility to free this data before the RSA_METHOD is freed via a call to RSA_meth_free().

RSA_meth_get_sign() and RSA_meth_set_sign() get and set the function used for creating an RSA signature respectively. This function will be called in response to the application calling RSA_sign(). The parameters for the function have the same meaning as for RSA_sign().

RSA_meth_get_verify() and RSA_meth_set_verify() get and set the function used for verifying an RSA signature respectively. This function will be called in response to the application calling RSA_verify(). The parameters for the function have the same meaning as for RSA_verify().

RSA_meth_get_mod_exp() and RSA_meth_set_mod_exp() get and set the function used for CRT computations.

RSA_meth_get_bn_mod_exp() and RSA_meth_set_bn_mod_exp() get and set the function used for CRT computations, specifically the following value:

r = a ^ p mod m

Both the mod_exp() and bn_mod_exp() functions are called by the default OpenSSL method during encryption, decryption, signing and verification.

RSA_meth_get_init() and RSA_meth_set_init() get and set the function used for creating a new RSA instance respectively. This function will be called in response to the application calling RSA_new() (if the current default RSA_METHOD is this one) or RSA_new_method(). The RSA_new() and RSA_new_method() functions will allocate the memory for the new RSA object, and a pointer to this newly allocated structure will be passed as a parameter to the function. This function may be NULL.

RSA_meth_get_finish() and RSA_meth_set_finish() get and set the function used for destroying an instance of an RSA object respectively. This function will be called in response to the application calling RSA_free(). A pointer to the RSA to be destroyed is passed as a parameter. The destroy function should be used for RSA implementation specific clean up. The memory for the RSA itself should not be freed by this function. This function may be NULL.

RSA_meth_get_keygen() and RSA_meth_set_keygen() get and set the function used for generating a new RSA key pair respectively. This function will be called in response to the application calling RSA_generate_key(). The parameter for the function has the same meaning as for RSA_generate_key().

RSA_meth_get_pub_enc(), RSA_meth_set_pub_enc(), RSA_meth_get_pub_dec(), RSA_meth_set_pub_dec(), RSA_meth_get_priv_enc(), RSA_meth_set_priv_enc(), RSA_meth_get_priv_dec(), RSA_meth_set_priv_dec() get and set the functions used for public and private key encryption and decryption. These functions will be called in response to the application calling RSA_public_encrypt(), RSA_private_decrypt(), RSA_private_encrypt() and RSA_public_decrypt() and take the same parameters as those.

Return Values

RSA_meth_new() and RSA_meth_dup() return the newly allocated RSA_METHOD object or NULL on failure.

RSA_meth_get0_name() and RSA_meth_get_flags() return the name and flags associated with the RSA_METHOD respectively.

All other RSA_meth_get_*() functions return the appropriate function pointer that has been set in the RSA_METHOD, or NULL if no such pointer has yet been set.

RSA_meth_set1_name and all RSA_meth_set_*() functions return 1 on success or 0 on failure.
