Caution: As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested pod source page into HTML format but links to other pod pages may be missing or even errorneous. Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted pod source code. A member file download can also be achieved by clicking within a package contents listing on the according byte size field.

DH_size, DH_bits, DH_security_bits - get Diffie-Hellman prime size and security bits


 #include <openssl/dh.h>

 int DH_size(const DH *dh);

 int DH_bits(const DH *dh);

 int DH_security_bits(const DH *dh);


DH_size() returns the Diffie-Hellman prime size in bytes. It can be used to determine how much memory must be allocated for the shared secret computed by DH_compute_key(3).

DH_bits() returns the number of significant bits.

dh and dh->p must not be NULL.

DH_security_bits() returns the number of security bits of the given dh key. See BN_security_bits(3).


DH_size() returns the prime size of Diffie-Hellman in bytes.

DH_bits() returns the number of bits in the key.

DH_security_bits() returns the number of security bits.


DH_new(3), DH_generate_key(3), BN_num_bits(3)


The DH_bits() function was added in OpenSSL 1.1.0.
