NAME

SSL_rstate_string, SSL_rstate_string_long - get textual description of state of an SSL object during read operation  

SYNOPSIS

 #include <openssl/ssl.h>

 const char *SSL_rstate_string(SSL *ssl);
 const char *SSL_rstate_string_long(SSL *ssl);

 

DESCRIPTION

SSL_rstate_string() returns a 2 letter string indicating the current read state of the SSL object ssl.

SSL_rstate_string_long() returns a string indicating the current read state of the SSL object ssl.  

NOTES

When performing a read operation, the SSL/TLS engine must parse the record, consisting of header and body. When working in a blocking environment, SSL_rstate_string[_long]() should always return ``RD''/``read done''.

This function should only seldom be needed in applications.  

RETURN VALUES

SSL_rstate_string() and SSL_rstate_string_long() can return the following values:
RH/read header
The header of the record is being evaluated.
RB/read body
The body of the record is being evaluated.
RD/read done
The record has been completely processed.
unknown/unknown
The read state is unknown. This should never happen.
