       The 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 EVP_MD structure.

       EVP_MD_meth_dup() creates a copy of md.

       EVP_MD_meth_free() destroys a EVP_MD structure.

       EVP_MD_meth_set_input_blocksize() sets the internal input block size
       for the method md to blocksize bytes.

       EVP_MD_meth_set_result_size() sets the size of the result that the
       digest method in md is expected to produce to 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 datasize.

       EVP_MD_meth_set_flags() sets the flags to describe optional behaviours
       in the particular md.  Several flags can be or'd together.  The
       available flags are:

           This digest method can only handle one block of input.

           This digest method is an extensible-output function (XOF) and
           supports the 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.  Note:
           if combined with EVP_MD_FLAG_DIGALGID_ABSENT, the latter will

           When setting up a DigestAlgorithmIdentifier, this flag will have
           the parameter be left absent by default.  Note: if combined with
           EVP_MD_FLAG_DIGALGID_NULL, the latter will be overridden.

           Custom DigestAlgorithmIdentifier handling via ctrl, with
           EVP_MD_FLAG_DIGALGID_ABSENT as default.  Note: if combined with
           EVP_MD_FLAG_DIGALGID_NULL, the latter will be overridden. Currently

           This digest method is suitable for use in FIPS mode.  Currently

       EVP_MD_meth_set_init() sets the digest init function for 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 md.  The
       digest update function is called by EVP_Digest(), EVP_DigestUpdate()
       and EVP_SignUpdate().

       EVP_MD_meth_set_final() sets the digest final function for 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 md to do extra
       computations after the method's private data structure has been copied
       from one 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 EVP_MD_CTX *, the private data structure is then
       available with EVP_MD_CTX_md_data().  This copy function is called by
       EVP_MD_CTX_copy() and EVP_MD_CTX_copy_ex().

       EVP_MD_meth_set_cleanup() sets the function for md to do extra cleanup
       before the method's private data structure is cleaned out and freed.
       Note that the cleanup function is passed a EVP_MD_CTX *, the private
       data structure is then available with EVP_MD_CTX_md_data().  This
       cleanup function is called by EVP_MD_CTX_reset() and EVP_MD_CTX_free().

       EVP_MD_meth_set_ctrl() sets the control function for md.  See
       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

       EVP_MD_meth_new() and EVP_MD_meth_dup() return a pointer to a newly
       created 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 md function.

       The EVP_MD structure was openly available in OpenSSL before version
       1.1.  The functions described here were added in OpenSSL 1.1.
