=head1 NAME
RSA_blinding_on, RSA_blinding_off - protect the RSA operation from timing attacks
#include <openssl/rsa.h>
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)>:
int RSA_blinding_on(RSA *rsa, BN_CTX *ctx);
void RSA_blinding_off(RSA *rsa);
All of the functions described on this page are deprecated.
RSA is vulnerable to timing attacks. In a setup where attackers can
measure the time of RSA decryption or signature operations, blinding
must be used to protect the RSA operation from that attack.
RSA_blinding_on() turns blinding on for key B<rsa> and generates a
random blinding factor. B<ctx> is B<NULL> or a preallocated and
initialized B<BN_CTX>.
RSA_blinding_off() turns blinding off and frees the memory used for
the blinding factor.
RSA_blinding_on() returns 1 on success, and 0 if an error occurred.
RSA_blinding_off() returns no value.
=head1 HISTORY
