=head1 NAME
EVP_PKEY_set1_encoded_public_key, EVP_PKEY_get1_encoded_public_key
- functions to set and get public key data within an EVP_PKEY
=head1 SYNOPSIS
#include <openssl/evp.h>
int EVP_PKEY_set1_encoded_public_key(EVP_PKEY *pkey,
const unsigned char *pub, size_t publen);
size_t EVP_PKEY_get1_encoded_public_key(EVP_PKEY *pkey, unsigned char **ppub);
#define EVP_PKEY_set1_tls_encodedpoint(pkey, pt, ptlen) \
EVP_PKEY_set1_encoded_public_key((pkey), (pt), (ptlen))
#define EVP_PKEY_get1_tls_encodedpoint(pkey, ppt) \
EVP_PKEY_get1_encoded_public_key((pkey), (ppt))
=head1 DESCRIPTION
EVP_PKEY_set1_encoded_public_key() can be used to set the public key value
within an existing EVP_PKEY object. For the built-in OpenSSL algorithms this
currently only works for those that support key exchange. Parameters are not
set as part of this operation, so typically an application will create an
EVP_PKEY first, set the parameters on it, and then call this function.
For example setting the parameters might be done using
L<EVP_PKEY_copy_parameters(3)>.
The format for the encoded public key will depend on the algorithm in use. For
DH it should be encoded as a positive integer in big-endian form. For EC is
should be a point conforming to Sec. 2.3.4 of the SECG SEC 1 ("Elliptic
Curve Cryptography") standard. For X25519 and X448 it should be encoded in a
format as defined by RFC7748.
The key to be updated is supplied in B<pkey>. The buffer containing the encoded
key is pointed to be B<pub>. The length of the buffer is supplied in B<publen>.
EVP_PKEY_get1_encoded_public_key() does the equivalent operation except that
the encoded public key is returned to the application. The key containing the
public key data is supplied in B<pkey>. A buffer containing the encoded key will
be allocated and stored in B<*ppub>. The length of the encoded public key is
returned by the function. The application is responsible for freeing the
allocated buffer.
=head1 RETURN VALUES
EVP_PKEY_set1_encoded_public_key() returns 1 for success and 0 or a negative
value for failure.
EVP_PKEY_get1_encoded_public_key() return 1
=head1 EXAMPLES
See L<EVP_PKEY_derive_init(3)> and L<EVP_PKEY_derive(3)> for information about
performing a key exchange operation.
=head2 Set up a peer's EVP_PKEY ready for a key exchange operation
#include <openssl/evp.h>
int exchange(EVP_PKEY *ourkey, unsigned char *peer_pub, size_t peer_pub_len)
{
EVP_PKEY *peerkey = EVP_PKEY_new();
if (peerkey == NULL || EVP_PKEY_copy_parameters(peerkey, ourkey) <= 0)
return 0;
if (EVP_PKEY_set1_encoded_public_key(peerkey, peer_pub,
peer_pub_len) <= 0)
return 0;
/* Do the key exchange here */
EVP_PKEY_free(peerkey);
return 1;
}
=head2 Get an encoded public key to send to a peer
#include <openssl/evp.h>
int get_encoded_pub_key(EVP_PKEY *ourkey)
{
unsigned char *pubkey;
size_t pubkey_len;
pubkey_len = EVP_PKEY_get1_encoded_public_key(ourkey, &pubkey);
if (pubkey_len == 0)
return 0;
/*
* Send the encoded public key stored in the buffer at "pubkey" and of
* length pubkey_len, to the peer.
*/
OPENSSL_free(pubkey);
return 1;
}
