The B<X509_PUBKEY> structure represents the ASN.1 B<SubjectPublicKeyInfo>
structure defined in RFC5280 and used in certificates and certificate requests.
X509_PUBKEY_new_ex() allocates and initializes an B<X509_PUBKEY> structure
associated with the given B<OSSL_LIB_CTX> in the I<libctx> parameter. Any
algorithm fetches associated with using the B<X509_PUBKEY> object will use
the property query string I<propq>. See L<crypto(7)/ALGORITHM FETCHING> for
further information about algorithm fetching.
X509_PUBKEY_new() is the same as X509_PUBKEY_new_ex() except that the default
(NULL) B<OSSL_LIB_CTX> and a NULL property query string are used.
X509_PUBKEY_dup() creates a duplicate copy of the B<X509_PUBKEY> object
specified by I<a>.
X509_PUBKEY_free() frees up B<X509_PUBKEY> structure I<a>. If I<a> is NULL
nothing is done.
X509_PUBKEY_set() sets the public key in I<*x> to the public key contained
in the B<EVP_PKEY> structure I<pkey>. If I<*x> is not NULL any existing
public key structure will be freed.
X509_PUBKEY_get0() returns the public key contained in I<key>. The returned
value is an internal pointer which B<MUST NOT> be freed after use.
X509_PUBKEY_get() is similar to X509_PUBKEY_get0() except the reference
count on the returned key is incremented so it B<MUST> be freed using
EVP_PKEY_free() after use.
d2i_PUBKEY_ex() decodes an B<EVP_PKEY> structure using B<SubjectPublicKeyInfo>
format. Some public key decoding implementations may use cryptographic
algorithms. In this case the supplied library context I<libctx> and property
query string I<propq> are used.
d2i_PUBKEY() does the same as d2i_PUBKEY_ex() except that the default
library context and property query string are used.
i2d_PUBKEY() encodes an B<EVP_PKEY> structure using B<SubjectPublicKeyInfo>
d2i_PUBKEY_bio(), d2i_PUBKEY_fp(), i2d_PUBKEY_bio() and i2d_PUBKEY_fp() are
similar to d2i_PUBKEY() and i2d_PUBKEY() except they decode or encode using a
B<BIO> or B<FILE> pointer.
X509_PUBKEY_set0_param() sets the public key parameters of I<pub>. The
OID associated with the algorithm is set to I<aobj>. The type of the
algorithm parameters is set to I<type> using the structure I<pval>.
The encoding of the public key itself is set to the I<penclen>
bytes contained in buffer I<penc>. On success ownership of all the supplied
parameters is passed to I<pub> so they must not be freed after the
X509_PUBKEY_get0_param() retrieves the public key parameters from I<pub>,
I<*ppkalg> is set to the associated OID and the encoding consists of
I<*ppklen> bytes at I<*pk>, I<*pa> is set to the associated
AlgorithmIdentifier for the public key. If the value of any of these
parameters is not required it can be set to NULL. All of the
retrieved pointers are internal and must not be freed after the
X509_PUBKEY_eq() compares two B<X509_PUBKEY> values.
=head1 NOTES
The B<X509_PUBKEY> functions can be used to encode and decode public keys
in a standard format.
In many cases applications will not call the B<X509_PUBKEY> functions
directly: they will instead call wrapper functions such as X509_get0_pubkey().
If the allocation fails, X509_PUBKEY_new() and X509_PUBKEY_dup() return
NULL and set an error code that can be obtained by L<ERR_get_error(3)>.
Otherwise they return a pointer to the newly allocated structure.
X509_PUBKEY_free() does not return a value.
X509_PUBKEY_get0() and X509_PUBKEY_get() return a pointer to an B<EVP_PKEY>
structure or NULL if an error occurs.
X509_PUBKEY_set(), X509_PUBKEY_set0_param() and X509_PUBKEY_get0_param()
return 1 for success and 0 if an error occurred.
X509_PUBKEY_eq() returns 1 for equal, 0 for different, and < 0 on error.
