SSL_remove_session - manipulate session cache
int SSL_CTX_add_session(SSL_CTX *ctx, SSL_SESSION *c);

int SSL_remove_session(SSL_CTX *ctx, SSL_SESSION *c);
SSL_CTX_add_session() adds the session c to the context
ctx. The reference count for session c is incremented by
1. If a session with the same session id already exists,
the old session is removed by calling SSL_SESSION_free(3).
SSL_CTX_remove_session() removes the session c from the
context ctx. SSL_SESSION_free(3) is called once for c.
SSL_add_session() and SSL_remove_session() are synonyms
for their SSL_CTX_*() counterparts.
When adding a new session to the internal session cache,
it is examined whether a session with the same session id
already exists. In this case it is assumed that both sessions
are identical. If the same session is stored in a
different SSL_SESSION object, The old session is removed
and replaced by the new session. If the session is actually
identical (the SSL_SESSION object is identical),
SSL_CTX_add_session() is a no-op, and the return value is
The following values are returned by all functions:
The operation failed. In case of the add operation, it was tried to add
the same (identical) session twice. In case of the remove operation, the
session was not found in the cache.
The operation succeeded.
