EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_scrypt_N(3)        OpenSSL       EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_scrypt_N(3)



NAME
       EVP_PKEY_CTX_set1_scrypt_salt, EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_scrypt_N,
       EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_scrypt_r, EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_scrypt_p,
       EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_scrypt_maxmem_bytes - EVP_PKEY scrypt KDF support
       functions

LIBRARY
       libcrypto, -lcrypto

SYNOPSIS
        #include <openssl/kdf.h>

        int EVP_PKEY_CTX_set1_scrypt_salt(EVP_PKEY_CTX *pctx, unsigned char *salt,
                                          int saltlen);

        int EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_scrypt_N(EVP_PKEY_CTX *pctx, uint64_t N);

        int EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_scrypt_r(EVP_PKEY_CTX *pctx, uint64_t r);

        int EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_scrypt_p(EVP_PKEY_CTX *pctx, uint64_t p);

        int EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_scrypt_maxmem_bytes(EVP_PKEY_CTX *pctx,
                                                 uint64_t maxmem);

DESCRIPTION
       These functions are used to set up the necessary data to use the scrypt
       KDF. For more information on scrypt, see scrypt(7).

       EVP_PKEY_CTX_set1_scrypt_salt() sets the saltlen bytes long salt value.

       EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_scrypt_N(), EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_scrypt_r() and
       EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_scrypt_p() configure the work factors N, r and p.

       EVP_PKEY_CTX_set_scrypt_maxmem_bytes() sets how much RAM key derivation
       may maximally use, given in bytes.  If RAM is exceeded because the load
       factors are chosen too high, the key derivation will fail.

STRING CTRLS
       scrypt also supports string based control operations via
       EVP_PKEY_CTX_ctrl_str(3).  Similarly, the salt can either be specified
       using the type parameter "salt" or in hex encoding by using the
       "hexsalt" parameter.  The work factors N, r and p as well as
       maxmem_bytes can be set by using the parameters "N", "r", "p" and
       "maxmem_bytes", respectively.

NOTES
       The scrypt KDF also uses EVP_PKEY_CTX_set1_pbe_pass() as well as the
       value from the string controls "pass" and "hexpass".  See
       EVP_PKEY_CTX_set1_pbe_pass(3).

       All the functions described here are implemented as macros.

RETURN VALUES
       All these functions 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 public key algorithm.
