NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       SSL_clear - Reset SSL object to allow another connection

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       #include <openssl/ssl.h>

       int SSL_clear(
               SSL *ssl );

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       Reset  ssl  to  allow  another  connection.  All  settings
       (method, ciphers, BIOs) are kept.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The SSL_clear() function is used to prepare an SSL  object
       for  a new connection. While all settings are kept, a side
       effect is the handling of the current SSL  session.  If  a
       session  is  still  open, it is considered bad and will be
       removed from the session cache, as required by RFC2246.  A
       session is considered open, if the SSL_shutdown() function
       was  not  called  for  the  connection  or  at  least  the
       SSL_set_shutdown()   function   was   used   to   set  the
       SSL_SENT_SHUTDOWN state.

       If a session was closed cleanly, the session  object  will
       be  kept  and  all corresponding settings. This means that
       the special method used during the session  will  be  kept
       for the next handshake.  For example, if the session was a
       TLSv1 session, an SSL  client  object  will  use  a  TLSv1
       client  method  for  the  next handshake, and a SSL server
       object will  use  a  TLSv1  server  method,  regardles  of
       whether  the SSLv23_*_methods were chosen onstartup.  This
       might lead to connection failures. (See SSL_new(3)  for  a
       description of the method's properties.)

WARNINGS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  SSL_clear()  function  resets the SSL object to allow
       for another connection. The reset operation keeps  several
       settings of previous sessions. Some of these settings were
       made  automatically  during  the  last   handshake.    The
       SSL_clear()function   is   not   a   short  form  for  the
       SSL_free(), SSL_new() sequence .

RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The following return values  can  occur:  The  SSL_clear()
       function operation could not be performed. Check the error
       stack to find out the reason.   The  SSL_clear()  function
       operation was successful.
