NAME
       SSL_get_current_cipher, SSL_get_cipher, SSL_get_cipher_name, SSL_get_cipher_bits,
       SSL_get_cipher_version - get SSL_CIPHER of a connection

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/ssl.h>

	SSL_CIPHER *SSL_get_current_cipher(const SSL *ssl);
	#define SSL_get_cipher(s) \
		       SSL_CIPHER_get_name(SSL_get_current_cipher(s))
	#define SSL_get_cipher_name(s) \
		       SSL_CIPHER_get_name(SSL_get_current_cipher(s))
	#define SSL_get_cipher_bits(s,np) \
		       SSL_CIPHER_get_bits(SSL_get_current_cipher(s),np)
	#define SSL_get_cipher_version(s) \
		       SSL_CIPHER_get_version(SSL_get_current_cipher(s))

DESCRIPTION
       SSL_get_current_cipher() returns a pointer to an SSL_CIPHER object containing the
       description of the actually used cipher of a connection established with the ssl object.

       SSL_get_cipher() and SSL_get_cipher_name() are identical macros to obtain the name of the
       currently used cipher. SSL_get_cipher_bits() is a macro to obtain the number of
       secret/algorithm bits used and SSL_get_cipher_version() returns the protocol name.  See
       SSL_CIPHER_get_name(3) for more details.

RETURN VALUES
       SSL_get_current_cipher() returns the cipher actually used or NULL, when no session has
       been established.
