=head1 NAME
DH_size, DH_bits, DH_security_bits - get Diffie-Hellman prime size and
security bits
=head1 SYNOPSIS
#include <openssl/dh.h>
Deprecated since OpenSSL 3.0, can be hidden entirely by defining
B<OPENSSL_API_COMPAT> with a suitable version value, see
L<openssl_user_macros(7)>:
int DH_bits(const DH *dh);
int DH_size(const DH *dh);
int DH_security_bits(const DH *dh);
=head1 DESCRIPTION
The functions described on this page are deprecated.
Applications should instead use L<EVP_PKEY_bits(3)>,
L<EVP_PKEY_security_bits(3)> and L<EVP_PKEY_size(3)>.
DH_bits() returns the number of significant bits.
B<dh> and B<dh-E<gt>p> must not be B<NULL>.
DH_size() returns the Diffie-Hellman prime size in bytes. It can be used
to determine how much memory must be allocated for the shared secret
computed by L<DH_compute_key(3)>.
DH_security_bits() returns the number of security bits of the given B<dh>
key. See L<BN_security_bits(3)>.
=head1 RETURN VALUES
DH_bits() returns the number of bits in the key, or -1 if
B<dh> doesn't hold any key parameters.
DH_size() returns the prime size of Diffie-Hellman in bytes, or -1 if
B<dh> doesn't hold any key parameters.
DH_security_bits() returns the number of security bits, or -1 if
B<dh> doesn't hold any key parameters.
=head1 SEE ALSO
L<EVP_PKEY_bits(3)>,
L<DH_new(3)>, L<DH_generate_key(3)>,
L<BN_num_bits(3)>
=head1 HISTORY
All functions were deprecated in OpenSSL 3.0.
