decrypt using a public key algorithm
EVP_PKEY_decrypt_init(EVP_PKEY_CTX *ctx); int
EVP_PKEY_decrypt(EVP_PKEY_CTX *ctx, unsigned char *out, size_t *outlen, const unsigned char *in, size_t inlen);
EVP_PKEY_decrypt_init() function initializes a public key algorithm context using key ctx->pkey for a decryption operation. The
EVP_PKEY_decrypt() function performs a public key decryption operation using ctx. The data to be decrypted is specified using the in and inlen parameters. If out is
NULLthen the maximum size of the output buffer is written to the outlen parameter. If out is not
NULLthen before the call the outlen parameter should contain the length of the out buffer. If the call is successful, the decrypted data is written to out and the amount of data written to outlen. After the call to
EVP_PKEY_decrypt_init(), algorithm specific control operations can be performed to set any appropriate parameters for the operation. The function
EVP_PKEY_decrypt() can be called more than once on the same context if several operations are performed using the same parameters.
EVP_PKEY_decrypt() 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.

EVP_PKEY_decrypt() first appeared in OpenSSL 1.0.0 and have been available since OpenBSD 4.9.
