DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       These functions implement the Diffie-Hellman key agreement
       protocol.  The generation of shared DH parameters is
       described in DH_generate_parameters(3); DH_generate_key(3)
       describes how to perform a key agreement.

       The DH structure consists of several BIGNUM components.

               BIGNUM *p;              // prime number (shared)
               BIGNUM *g;              // generator of Z_p (shared)
               BIGNUM *priv_key;       // private DH value x
               BIGNUM *pub_key;        // public DH value g^x
               // ...
