NAME

RSA_size, RSA_bits, RSA_security_bits - get RSA modulus size or security bits  

SYNOPSIS

 #include <openssl/rsa.h>

 int RSA_size(const RSA *rsa);

 int RSA_bits(const RSA *rsa);

 int RSA_security_bits(const RSA *rsa)

 

DESCRIPTION

RSA_size() returns the RSA modulus size in bytes. It can be used to determine how much memory must be allocated for an RSA encrypted value.

RSA_bits() returns the number of significant bits.

rsa and rsa->n must not be NULL.

RSA_security_bits() returns the number of security bits of the given rsa key. See BN_security_bits(3).  

RETURN VALUES

RSA_size() returns the size of modulus in bytes.

DSA_bits() returns the number of bits in the key.

RSA_security_bits() returns the number of security bits.

HISTORY

The RSA_bits() function was added in OpenSSL 1.1.0.
