BN_mod_mul_reciprocal, BN_div_recp, BN_RECP_CTX_new,
BN_RECP_CTX_free, BN_RECP_CTX_set - modular multiplication using
#include <openssl/bn.h>
void BN_RECP_CTX_free(BN_RECP_CTX *recp);
int BN_RECP_CTX_set(BN_RECP_CTX *recp, const BIGNUM *m, BN_CTX *ctx);
int BN_div_recp(BIGNUM *dv, BIGNUM *rem, const BIGNUM *a, BN_RECP_CTX *recp,
BN_CTX *ctx);
int BN_mod_mul_reciprocal(BIGNUM *r, const BIGNUM *a, const BIGNUM *b,
BN_RECP_CTX *recp, BN_CTX *ctx);
BN_mod_mul_reciprocal() can be used to perform an efficient
L<BN_mod_mul(3)> operation when the operation will be performed
repeatedly with the same modulus. It computes B<r>=(B<a>*B<b>)%B<m>
using B<recp>=1/B<m>, which is set as described below. B<ctx> is a
previously allocated B<BN_CTX> used for temporary variables.
BN_RECP_CTX_new() allocates and initializes a B<BN_RECP> structure.
BN_RECP_CTX_free() frees the components of the B<BN_RECP>, and, if it
was created by BN_RECP_CTX_new(), also the structure itself.
If B<recp> is NULL, nothing is done.
BN_RECP_CTX_set() stores B<m> in B<recp> and sets it up for computing
1/B<m> and shifting it left by BN_num_bits(B<m>)+1 to make it an
integer. The result and the number of bits it was shifted left will
later be stored in B<recp>.
BN_div_recp() divides B<a> by B<m> using B<recp>. It places the quotient
in B<dv> and the remainder in B<rem>.
The B<BN_RECP_CTX> structure cannot be shared between threads.
BN_RECP_CTX_new() returns the newly allocated B<BN_RECP_CTX>, and NULL
on error.
BN_RECP_CTX_free() has no return value.
For the other functions, 1 is returned for success, 0 on error.
The error codes can be obtained by L<ERR_get_error(3)>.
