DESCRIPTION
       A DSA object contains the parameters p, q and g.	It also	contains a
       public key (pub_key) and	(optionally) a private key (priv_key).

       The p, q	and g parameters can be	obtained by calling DSA_get0_pqg().
       If the parameters have not yet been set then *p,	*q and *g will be set
       to NULL.	Otherwise they are set to pointers to their respective values.
       These point directly to the internal representations of the values and
       therefore should	not be freed directly.

       The p, q	and g values can be set	by calling DSA_set0_pqg() and passing
       the new values for p, q and g as	parameters to the function. Calling
       this function transfers the memory management of	the values to the DSA
       object, and therefore the values	that have been passed in should	not be
       freed directly after this function has been called.

       To get the public and private key values	use the	DSA_get0_key()
       function. A pointer to the public key will be stored in *pub_key, and a
       pointer to the private key will be stored in *priv_key. Either may be
       NULL if they have not been set yet, although if the private key has
       been set	then the public	key must be. The values	point to the internal
       representation of the public key	and private key	values.	This memory
       should not be freed directly.

       The public and private key values can be	set using DSA_set0_key(). The
       public key must be non-NULL the first time this function	is called on a
       given DSA object. The private key may be	NULL.  On subsequent calls,
       either may be NULL, which means the corresponding DSA field is left
       untouched. As for DSA_set0_pqg()	this function transfers	the memory
       management of the key values to the DSA object, and therefore they
       should not be freed directly after this function	has been called.

       Any of the values p, q, g, priv_key, and	pub_key	can also be retrieved
       separately by the corresponding function	DSA_get0_p(), DSA_get0_q(),
       DSA_get0_g(), DSA_get0_priv_key(), and DSA_get0_pub_key(),
       respectively.

       DSA_set_flags() sets the	flags in the flags parameter on	the DSA
       object.	Multiple flags can be passed in	one go (bitwise	ORed
       together). Any flags that are already set are left set.
       DSA_test_flags()	tests to see whether the flags passed in the flags
       parameter are currently set in the DSA object. Multiple flags can be
       tested in one go. All flags that	are currently set are returned,	or
       zero if none of the flags are set. DSA_clear_flags() clears the
       specified flags within the DSA object.

       DSA_get0_engine() returns a handle to the ENGINE	that has been set for
       this DSA	object,	or NULL	if no such ENGINE has been set.

NOTES
       Values retrieved	with DSA_get0_key() are	owned by the DSA object	used
       in the call and may therefore not be passed to DSA_set0_key().  If
       needed, duplicate the received value using BN_dup() and pass the
       duplicate.  The same applies to DSA_get0_pqg() and DSA_set0_pqg().

RETURN VALUES
       DSA_set0_pqg() and DSA_set0_key() return	1 on success or	0 on failure.

       DSA_test_flags()	returns	the current state of the flags in the DSA
       object.

       DSA_get0_engine() returns the ENGINE set	for the	DSA object or NULL if
       no ENGINE has been set.
