=head1 DESCRIPTION

The B<DH_METHOD> type is a structure used for the provision of custom DH
implementations. It provides a set of functions used by OpenSSL for the
implementation of the various DH capabilities.

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

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

DH_meth_free() destroys a B<DH_METHOD> structure and frees up any memory
associated with it.

DH_meth_get0_name() will return a pointer to the name of this DH_METHOD. This
is a pointer to the internal name string and so should not be freed by the
caller. DH_meth_set1_name() sets the name of the DH_METHOD to B<name>. The
string is duplicated and the copy is stored in the DH_METHOD structure, so the
caller remains responsible for freeing the memory associated with the name.

DH_meth_get_flags() returns the current value of the flags associated with this
DH_METHOD. DH_meth_set_flags() provides the ability to set these flags.

The functions DH_meth_get0_app_data() and DH_meth_set0_app_data() provide the
ability to associate implementation specific data with the DH_METHOD. It is
the application's responsibility to free this data before the DH_METHOD is
freed via a call to DH_meth_free().

DH_meth_get_generate_key() and DH_meth_set_generate_key() get and set the
function used for generating a new DH key pair respectively. This function will
be called in response to the application calling DH_generate_key(). The
parameter for the function has the same meaning as for DH_generate_key().

DH_meth_get_compute_key() and DH_meth_set_compute_key() get and set the
function used for computing a new DH shared secret respectively. This function
will be called in response to the application calling DH_compute_key(). The
parameters for the function have the same meaning as for DH_compute_key().

DH_meth_get_bn_mod_exp() and DH_meth_set_bn_mod_exp() get and set the function
used for computing the following value:

 r = a ^ p mod m

This function will be called by the default OpenSSL function for
DH_generate_key(). The result is stored in the B<r> parameter. This function
may be NULL unless using the default generate key function, in which case it
must be present.

DH_meth_get_init() and DH_meth_set_init() get and set the function used
for creating a new DH instance respectively. This function will be
called in response to the application calling DH_new() (if the current default
DH_METHOD is this one) or DH_new_method(). The DH_new() and DH_new_method()
functions will allocate the memory for the new DH object, and a pointer to this
newly allocated structure will be passed as a parameter to the function. This
function may be NULL.

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

DH_meth_get_generate_params() and DH_meth_set_generate_params() get and set the
function used for generating DH parameters respectively. This function will be
called in response to the application calling DH_generate_parameters_ex() (or
DH_generate_parameters()). The parameters for the function have the same
meaning as for DH_generate_parameters_ex(). This function may be NULL.

=head1 RETURN VALUES

DH_meth_new() and DH_meth_dup() return the newly allocated DH_METHOD object
or NULL on failure.

DH_meth_get0_name() and DH_meth_get_flags() return the name and flags
associated with the DH_METHOD respectively.

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

DH_meth_set1_name() and all DH_meth_set_*() functions return 1 on success or
0 on failure.
