NAME

tls_connect, tls_connect_fds, tls_connect_servername, tls_connect_socket, tls_connect_cbsinstruct a TLS client to establish a connection

SYNOPSIS

#include <tls.h>
int
tls_connect(struct tls *ctx, const char *host, const char *port);
int
tls_connect_fds(struct tls *ctx, int fd_read, int fd_write, const char *servername);
int
tls_connect_servername(struct tls *ctx, const char *host, const char *port, const char *servername);
int
tls_connect_socket(struct tls *ctx, int s, const char *servername);
int
tls_connect_cbs(struct tls *ctx, ssize_t (*tls_read_cb)(struct tls *ctx, void *buf, size_t buflen, void *cb_arg), ssize_t (*tls_write_cb)(struct tls *ctx, const void *buf, size_t buflen, void *cb_arg), void *cb_arg, const char *servername);

DESCRIPTION

After creating a TLS client context with tls_client(3) and configuring it with tls_configure(3), a client connection is initiated by calling tls_connect(). This function will create a new socket, connect to the specified host and port, and then establish a secure connection. The port may be numeric or a service name. If it is NULL, then a host of the format "hostname:port" is permitted.
The tls_connect_servername() function has the same behaviour, however the name to use for verification is explicitly provided, rather than being inferred from the host value.
An already existing socket can be upgraded to a secure connection by calling tls_connect_socket().
Alternatively, a secure connection can be established over a pair of existing file descriptors by calling tls_connect_fds().
Calling tls_connect_cbs() allows read and write callback functions to handle data transfers. The specified cb_arg parameter is passed back to the functions, and can contain a pointer to any caller-specified data.

RETURN VALUES

These functions return 0 on success or -1 on error.
