RSA_NEW(3)			    OpenSSL			    RSA_NEW(3)

NAME
       RSA_new,	RSA_free - allocate and	free RSA objects

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/rsa.h>

	RSA *RSA_new(void);

	void RSA_free(RSA *rsa);

DESCRIPTION
       RSA_new() allocates and initializes an RSA structure. It	is equivalent
       to calling RSA_new_method(NULL).

       RSA_free() frees	the RSA	structure and its components. The key is
       erased before the memory	is returned to the system.  If rsa is NULL
       nothing is done.

RETURN VALUES
       If the allocation fails,	RSA_new() returns NULL and sets	an error code
       that can	be obtained by ERR_get_error(3). Otherwise it returns a
       pointer to the newly allocated structure.

       RSA_free() returns no value.
