DSA_set_method(3)		    OpenSSL		     DSA_set_method(3)

NAME
       DSA_set_default_method, DSA_get_default_method, DSA_set_method,
       DSA_new_method, DSA_OpenSSL - select DSA method

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/dsa.h>

	void DSA_set_default_method(DSA_METHOD *meth);

	DSA_METHOD *DSA_get_default_method(void);

	DSA_METHOD *DSA_set_method(DSA *dsa, DSA_METHOD *meth);

	DSA *DSA_new_method(DSA_METHOD *meth);

	DSA_METHOD *DSA_OpenSSL(void);

DESCRIPTION
       A DSA_METHOD specifies the functions that OpenSSL uses for DSA
       operations. By modifying the method, alternative implementations such
       as hardware accelerators may be used.

       Initially, the default is to use the OpenSSL internal implementation.
       DSA_OpenSSL() returns a pointer to that method.

       DSA_set_default_method() makes meth the default method for all DSA
       structures created later.

       DSA_get_default_method() returns a pointer to the current default
       method.

       DSA_set_method() selects meth for all operations using the structure
       dsa.

       DSA_new_method() allocates and initializes a DSA structure so that
       method will be used for the DSA operations. If method is NULL, the
       default method is used.

THE DSA_METHOD STRUCTURE
       struct
	{
	    /* name of the implementation */
	       const char *name;

	    /* sign */
	       DSA_SIG *(*dsa_do_sign)(const unsigned char *dgst, int dlen,
					DSA *dsa);

	    /* pre-compute k^-1 and r */
	       int (*dsa_sign_setup)(DSA *dsa, BN_CTX *ctx_in, BIGNUM **kinvp,
					BIGNUM **rp);

	    /* verify */
	       int (*dsa_do_verify)(const unsigned char *dgst, int dgst_len,
					DSA_SIG *sig, DSA *dsa);

	    /* compute rr = a1^p1 * a2^p2 mod m (May be NULL for some
						 implementations) */
	       int (*dsa_mod_exp)(DSA *dsa, BIGNUM *rr, BIGNUM *a1, BIGNUM *p1,
					BIGNUM *a2, BIGNUM *p2, BIGNUM *m,
					BN_CTX *ctx, BN_MONT_CTX *in_mont);

	    /* compute r = a ^ p mod m (May be NULL for some implementations) */
	       int (*bn_mod_exp)(DSA *dsa, BIGNUM *r, BIGNUM *a,
					const BIGNUM *p, const BIGNUM *m,
					BN_CTX *ctx, BN_MONT_CTX *m_ctx);

	    /* called at DSA_new */
	       int (*init)(DSA *DSA);

	    /* called at DSA_free */
	       int (*finish)(DSA *DSA);

	       int flags;

	       char *app_data; /* ?? */

	} DSA_METHOD;

RETURN VALUES
       DSA_OpenSSL() and DSA_get_default_method() return pointers to the
       respective DSA_METHODs.

       DSA_set_default_method() returns no value.

       DSA_set_method() returns a pointer to the DSA_METHOD previously
       associated with dsa.

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

       DSA_set_default_method(), DSA_get_default_method(), DSA_set_method(),
       DSA_new_method() and DSA_OpenSSL() were added in OpenSSL 0.9.4.
