.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.IX Header "DESCRIPTION"
The function \fBEVP_PKEY_missing_parameters()\fR returns 1 if the public key
parameters of \fBpkey\fR are missing and 0 if they are present or the algorithm
doesn't use parameters.
.PP
The function \fBEVP_PKEY_copy_parameters()\fR copies the parameters from key
\&\fBfrom\fR to key \fBto\fR. An error is returned if the parameters are missing in
\&\fBfrom\fR or present in both \fBfrom\fR and \fBto\fR and mismatch. If the parameters
in \fBfrom\fR and \fBto\fR are both present and match this function has no effect.
.PP
The function \fBEVP_PKEY_cmp_parameters()\fR compares the parameters of keys
\&\fBa\fR and \fBb\fR.
.PP
The function \fBEVP_PKEY_cmp()\fR compares the public key components and parameters
(if present) of keys \fBa\fR and \fBb\fR.
.SH "NOTES"
.IX Header "NOTES"
The main purpose of the functions \fBEVP_PKEY_missing_parameters()\fR and
\&\fBEVP_PKEY_copy_parameters()\fR is to handle public keys in certificates where the
parameters are sometimes omitted from a public key if they are inherited from
the \s-1CA\s0 that signed it.
.PP
Since OpenSSL private keys contain public key components too the function
\&\fBEVP_PKEY_cmp()\fR can also be used to determine if a private key matches
a public key.
.SH "RETURN VALUES"
.IX Header "RETURN VALUES"
The function \fBEVP_PKEY_missing_parameters()\fR returns 1 if the public key
parameters of \fBpkey\fR are missing and 0 if they are present or the algorithm
doesn't use parameters.
.PP
These functions \fBEVP_PKEY_copy_parameters()\fR returns 1 for success and 0 for
failure.
.PP
The function \fBEVP_PKEY_cmp_parameters()\fR and \fBEVP_PKEY_cmp()\fR return 1 if the
keys match, 0 if they don't match, \-1 if the key types are different and
\&\-2 if the operation is not supported.
