DESCRIPTION
       These functions implement the Diffie-Hellman key agreement protocol.
       The generation of shared DH parameters is described in
       DH_generate_parameters(3); DH_generate_key(3) describes how to perform
       a key agreement.

       The DH structure consists of several BIGNUM components.

        struct
               {
               BIGNUM *p;              // prime number (shared)
               BIGNUM *g;              // generator of Z_p (shared)
               BIGNUM *priv_key;       // private DH value x
               BIGNUM *pub_key;        // public DH value g^x
               // ...
               };
        DH

       Note that DH keys may use non-standard DH_METHOD implementations,
       either directly or by the use of ENGINE modules. In some cases (eg. an
