=head1 NAME
EVP_PKEY_decapsulate_init, EVP_PKEY_decapsulate
- Key decapsulation using a private key algorithm
#include <openssl/evp.h>
int EVP_PKEY_decapsulate_init(EVP_PKEY_CTX *ctx, const OSSL_PARAM params[]);
int EVP_PKEY_decapsulate(EVP_PKEY_CTX *ctx,
unsigned char *secret, size_t *secretlen,
const unsigned char *wrapped, size_t wrappedlen);
The EVP_PKEY_decapsulate_init() function initializes a private key algorithm
context I<ctx> for a decapsulation operation and then sets the I<params>
on the context in the same way as calling L<EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_params(3)>.
The EVP_PKEY_decapsulate() function performs a private key decapsulation
operation using I<ctx>. The data to be decapsulated is specified using the
I<wrapped> and I<wrappedlen> parameters.
If I<secret> is I<NULL> then the maximum size of the output secret buffer
is written to the I<*secretlen> parameter. If I<secret> is not B<NULL> and the
call is successful then the decapsulated secret data is written to I<secret> and
the amount of data written to I<secretlen>.
=head1 NOTES
After the call to EVP_PKEY_decapsulate_init() algorithm specific parameters
for the operation may be set or modified using L<EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_params(3)>.
EVP_PKEY_decapsulate_init() and EVP_PKEY_decapsulate() return 1 for
success and 0 or a negative value for failure. In particular a return value of -2
indicates the operation is not supported by the private key algorithm.
Decapsulate data using RSA:
#include <openssl/evp.h>
* NB: assumes rsa_priv_key is an RSA private key,
* and that in, inlen are already set up to contain encapsulated data.
size_t secretlen = 0;
unsigned char *secret = NULL;;
ctx = EVP_PKEY_CTX_new_from_pkey(libctx, rsa_priv_key, NULL);
if (ctx = NULL)
/* Error */
if (EVP_PKEY_decapsulate_init(ctx, NULL) <= 0)
/* Error */
/* Set the mode - only 'RSASVE' is currently supported */
if (EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_kem_op(ctx, "RSASVE") <= 0)
/* Error */
/* Determine buffer length */
if (EVP_PKEY_decapsulate(ctx, NULL, &secretlen, in, inlen) <= 0)
/* Error */
secret = OPENSSL_malloc(secretlen);
if (secret == NULL)
/* malloc failure */
/* Decapsulated secret data is secretlen bytes long */
if (EVP_PKEY_decapsulaterctx, secret, &secretlen, in, inlen) <= 0)
/* Error */
