|SSL_SET_SESSION(3)||Library Functions Manual||SSL_SET_SESSION(3)|
SSL_set_session() sets session to be used when the TLS/SSL connection is to be established.
SSL_set_session() is only useful for TLS/SSL clients. When the session is set, the reference count of session is incremented by 1. If the session is not reused, the reference count is decremented again during
SSL_connect(). Whether the session was reused can be queried with the SSL_session_reused(3) call.
If there is already a session set inside ssl
(because it was set with
SSL_set_session() before or
because the same ssl was already used for a
SSL_SESSION_free(3) will be
called for that session.
SSL_SESSION objects keep internal link information about the session cache list when being inserted into one SSL_CTX object's session cache. One SSL_SESSION object, regardless of its reference count, must therefore only be used with one SSL_CTX object (and the SSL objects created from this SSL_CTX object).
SSL_set_session() first appeared in SSLeay 0.5.2 and has been available since OpenBSD 2.4.
