NAMESSL_rstate_string, SSL_rstate_string_long - get textual description of state of an SSL object during read operation
const char *SSL_rstate_string(SSL *ssl); const char *SSL_rstate_string_long(SSL *ssl);
DESCRIPTIONSSL_rstate_string() returns a 2 letter string indicating the current read state of the SSL object ssl.
NOTESWhen 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''.
RETURN VALUESSSL_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.
- The read state is unknown. This should never happen.
