NAME

SSL_new, SSL_up_ref - create a new SSL structure for a connection

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



 #include <openssl/ssl.h>

 SSL *SSL_new(SSL_CTX *ctx);
 void SSL_up_ref(SSL *s);



DESCRIPTION

SSL_new() creates a new SSL structure which is needed to hold the data for a TLS/SSL connection. The new structure inherits the settings of the underlying context ctx: connection method, options, verification settings, timeout settings. An SSL structure is reference counted. Creating an SSL structure for the first time increments the reference count. Freeing it (using SSL_free) decrements it. When the reference count drops to zero, any memory or resources allocated to the SSL structure are freed. SSL_up_ref() increments the reference count for an existing SSL structure.

RETURN VALUES

The following return values can occur:
NULL The creation of a new SSL structure failed. Check the error stack to find out the reason.
Pointer to an SSL structure The return value points to an allocated SSL structure.
