NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       SSL_set_shutdown, SSL_get_shutdown - manipulate shutdown
       state of an SSL connection

LIBRARY    [Toc]    [Back]

       libcrypto, -lcrypto

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

        #include <openssl/ssl.h>

        void SSL_set_shutdown(SSL *ssl, int mode);

        int SSL_get_shutdown(SSL *ssl);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       SSL_set_shutdown() sets the shutdown state of ssl to mode.

       SSL_get_shutdown() returns the shutdown mode of ssl.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The shutdown state of an ssl connection is a bitmask of:

       0   No shutdown setting, yet.

           A "close notify" shutdown alert was sent to the peer,
           the connection is being considered closed and the session
 is closed and correct.

           A shutdown alert was received form the peer, either a
           normal "close notify" or a fatal error.

       the same time.

       The shutdown state of the connection is used to determine
       the state of the ssl session. If the session is still
       open, when SSL_clear(3) or SSL_free(3) is called, it is
       considered bad and removed according to RFC2246.  The
       actual condition for a correctly closed session is
       SSL_SENT_SHUTDOWN (according to the TLS RFC, it is acceptable
 to only send the "close notify" alert but to not wait
       for the peer's answer, when the underlying connection is
       closed).  SSL_set_shutdown() can be used to set this state
       without sending a close alert to the peer (see SSL_shutdown(3)).

       If a "close notify" was received, SSL_RECEIVED_SHUTDOWN
       will be set, for setting SSL_SENT_SHUTDOWN the application
       must however still call SSL_shutdown(3) or SSL_set_shut-
       down() itself.

RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]

       SSL_set_shutdown() does not return diagnostic information.

       SSL_get_shutdown() returns the current setting.
