EVP_KEM_fetch() fetches the implementation for the given B<algorithm> from any
provider offering it, within the criteria given by the B<properties> and in the
scope of the given library context B<ctx> (see L<OSSL_LIB_CTX(3)>). The algorithm
will be one offering functions for performing asymmetric kem related tasks such
as key encapsulation and decapsulation.
See L<crypto(7)/ALGORITHM FETCHING> for further information.
The returned value must eventually be freed with EVP_KEM_free().
EVP_KEM_free() decrements the reference count for the B<EVP_KEM> structure.
Typically this structure will have been obtained from an earlier call to
EVP_KEM_fetch(). If the reference count drops to 0 then the structure is freed.
EVP_KEM_up_ref() increments the reference count for an B<EVP_KEM> structure.
EVP_KEM_is_a() returns 1 if I<kem> is an implementation of an
algorithm that's identifiable with I<name>, otherwise 0.
EVP_KEM_get0_provider() returns the provider that I<kem> was fetched from.
EVP_KEM_do_all_provided() traverses all EVP_KEMs implemented by all activated
providers in the given library context I<libctx>, and for each of the
implementations, calls the given function I<fn> with the implementation method
and the given I<arg> as argument.
EVP_KEM_get0_name() returns the algorithm name from the provided
implementation for the given I<kem>. Note that the I<kem> may have
multiple synonyms associated with it. In this case the first name from the
algorithm definition is returned. Ownership of the returned string is retained
by the I<kem> object and should not be freed by the caller.
EVP_KEM_names_do_all() traverses all names for I<kem>, and calls I<fn> with
each name and I<data>.
EVP_KEM_get0_description() returns a description of the I<kem>, meant for
display and human consumption. The description is at the discretion of
the I<kem> implementation.
EVP_KEM_gettable_ctx_params() and EVP_KEM_settable_ctx_params() return
a constant B<OSSL_PARAM> array that describes the names and types of key
parameters that can be retrieved or set by a key encapsulation algorithm using
L<EVP_PKEY_CTX_get_params(3)> and L<EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_params(3)>.
EVP_KEM_fetch() returns a pointer to an B<EVP_KEM> for success or B<NULL> for
EVP_KEM_up_ref() returns 1 for success or 0 otherwise.
EVP_KEM_names_do_all() returns 1 if the callback was called for all names. A
return value of 0 means that the callback was not called for any names.
EVP_KEM_gettable_ctx_params() and EVP_KEM_settable_ctx_params() return
a constant B<OSSL_PARAM> array or NULL on error.
