The following functions have been deprecated since OpenSSL 3.0, and can be
hidden entirely by defining B<OPENSSL_API_COMPAT> with a suitable version value,
see L<openssl_user_macros(7)>:

All of the functions described on this page are deprecated.
Applications should instead use the OSSL_PROVIDER APIs.
The B<EVP_MD> type is a structure for digest method implementation.
It can also have associated public/private key signing and verifying
EVP_MD_meth_new() creates a new B<EVP_MD> structure.
These B<EVP_MD> structures are reference counted.
EVP_MD_meth_dup() creates a copy of B<md>.
EVP_MD_meth_free() decrements the reference count for the B<EVP_MD> structure.
If the reference count drops to 0 then the structure is freed.
EVP_MD_meth_set_input_blocksize() sets the internal input block size
for the method B<md> to B<blocksize> bytes.
EVP_MD_meth_set_result_size() sets the size of the result that the
digest method in B<md> is expected to produce to B<resultsize> bytes.
The digest method may have its own private data, which OpenSSL will
allocate for it. EVP_MD_meth_set_app_datasize() should be used to
set the size for it to B<datasize>.
EVP_MD_meth_set_flags() sets the flags to describe optional
behaviours in the particular B<md>. Several flags can be or'd
together. The available flags are:
=over 4
This digest method can only handle one block of input.
This digest method is an extensible-output function (XOF) and supports
the B<EVP_MD_CTRL_XOF_LEN> control.
When setting up a DigestAlgorithmIdentifier, this flag will have the
parameter set to NULL by default. Use this for PKCS#1. I<Note: if
combined with EVP_MD_FLAG_DIGALGID_ABSENT, the latter will override.>
When setting up a DigestAlgorithmIdentifier, this flag will have the
parameter be left absent by default. I<Note: if combined with
EVP_MD_FLAG_DIGALGID_NULL, the latter will be overridden.>
Custom DigestAlgorithmIdentifier handling via ctrl, with
B<EVP_MD_FLAG_DIGALGID_ABSENT> as default. I<Note: if combined with
EVP_MD_FLAG_DIGALGID_NULL, the latter will be overridden.>
Currently unused.
This digest method is suitable for use in FIPS mode.
Currently unused.
EVP_MD_meth_set_init() sets the digest init function for B<md>.
The digest init function is called by EVP_Digest(), EVP_DigestInit(),
EVP_DigestInit_ex(), EVP_SignInit, EVP_SignInit_ex(), EVP_VerifyInit()
and EVP_VerifyInit_ex().
EVP_MD_meth_set_update() sets the digest update function for B<md>.
The digest update function is called by EVP_Digest(), EVP_DigestUpdate() and
EVP_MD_meth_set_final() sets the digest final function for B<md>.
The digest final function is called by EVP_Digest(), EVP_DigestFinal(),
EVP_DigestFinal_ex(), EVP_SignFinal() and EVP_VerifyFinal().
EVP_MD_meth_set_copy() sets the function for B<md> to do extra
computations after the method's private data structure has been copied
from one B<EVP_MD_CTX> to another. If all that's needed is to copy
the data, there is no need for this copy function.
Note that the copy function is passed two B<EVP_MD_CTX *>, the private
data structure is then available with EVP_MD_CTX_get0_md_data().
This copy function is called by EVP_MD_CTX_copy() and
EVP_MD_meth_set_cleanup() sets the function for B<md> to do extra
cleanup before the method's private data structure is cleaned out and
Note that the cleanup function is passed a B<EVP_MD_CTX *>, the
private data structure is then available with EVP_MD_CTX_get0_md_data().
This cleanup function is called by EVP_MD_CTX_reset() and
EVP_MD_meth_set_ctrl() sets the control function for B<md>.
See L<EVP_MD_CTX_ctrl(3)> for the available controls.
EVP_MD_meth_get_input_blocksize(), EVP_MD_meth_get_result_size(),
EVP_MD_meth_get_app_datasize(), EVP_MD_meth_get_flags(),
EVP_MD_meth_get_init(), EVP_MD_meth_get_update(),
EVP_MD_meth_get_final(), EVP_MD_meth_get_copy(),
EVP_MD_meth_get_cleanup() and EVP_MD_meth_get_ctrl() are all used
to retrieve the method data given with the EVP_MD_meth_set_*()
functions above.
EVP_MD_meth_new() and EVP_MD_meth_dup() return a pointer to a newly
created B<EVP_MD>, or NULL on failure.
All EVP_MD_meth_set_*() functions return 1.
EVP_MD_get_input_blocksize(), EVP_MD_meth_get_result_size(),
EVP_MD_meth_get_app_datasize() and EVP_MD_meth_get_flags() return the
indicated sizes or flags.
All other EVP_CIPHER_meth_get_*() functions return pointers to their
respective B<md> function.

=head1 HISTORY
All of these functions were deprecated in OpenSSL 3.0.
The B<EVP_MD> structure was openly available in OpenSSL before version
The functions described here were added in OpenSSL 1.1.
The B<EVP_MD> structure created with these functions became reference
counted in OpenSSL 3.0.
