|SSL_RENEGOTIATE(3)||Library Functions Manual||SSL_RENEGOTIATE(3)|
SSL_renegotiate() schedules a completely new handshake over an existing TLS connection. The next time an I/O operation such as
SSL_write() takes place on the connection, a check is performed to confirm that it is a suitable time to start a renegotiation. If so, a new handshake is initiated immediately. An existing session associated with the connection is not resumed.
This function is automatically called by SSL_read(3) and SSL_write(3) whenever the renegotiation byte count set by BIO_set_ssl_renegotiate_bytes(3) or the timeout set by BIO_set_ssl_renegotiate_timeout(3) are exceeded.
When called from the client side,
SSL_renegotiate_abbreviated() is similar to
SSL_renegotiate() except that resuming the session
associated with the current connection is attempted in the new
When called from the server side,
SSL_renegotiate_abbreviated() behave identically.
They both schedule a request for a new handshake to be sent to the client.
The next time an I/O operation is performed, the same checks as on the
client side are performed and then, if appropriate, the request is sent. The
client may or may not respond with a new handshake and it may or may not
attempt to resume an existing session. If a new handshake is started, it is
handled transparently during any I/O function.
If a LibreSSL client receives a renegotiation request from a server, it is also handled transparently during any I/O function. The client attempts to resume the current session in the new handshake. For historical reasons, DTLS clients do not attempt to resume the session in the new handshake.
SSL_renegotiate_abbreviated() return 1 on success or 0 on error.
SSL_renegotiate_pending() returns 1 if a
renegotiation or renegotiation request has been scheduled but not yet acted
on, or 0 otherwise.
