NAME
BIO_f_null - null filter LIBRARY
libcrypto, -lcrypto SYNOPSIS
#include <openssl/bio.h> BIO_METHOD * BIO_f_null(void); DESCRIPTION
BIO_f_null() returns the null filter BIO method. This is a filter BIO that does nothing. All requests to a null filter BIO are passed through to the next BIO in the chain: this means that a BIO chain containing a null filter BIO behaves just as though the BIO was not there. NOTES
As may be apparent a null filter BIO is not particularly useful. RETURN VALUES
BIO_f_null() returns the null filter BIO method. SEE ALSO

NAME
bio - I/O abstraction LIBRARY
libcrypto, -lcrypto SYNOPSIS
#include <openssl/bio.h> TBA DESCRIPTION
A BIO is an I/O abstraction, it hides many of the underlying I/O details from an application. If an application uses a BIO for its I/O it can transparently handle SSL connections, unencrypted network connections and file I/O. There are two type of BIO, a source/sink BIO and a filter BIO. As its name implies a source/sink BIO is a source and/or sink of data, examples include a socket BIO and a file BIO. A filter BIO takes data from one BIO and passes it through to another, or the application. The data may be left unmodified (for example a message digest BIO) or translated (for example an encryption BIO). The effect of a filter BIO may change according to the I/O operation it is performing: for example an encryption BIO will encrypt data if it is being written to and decrypt data if it is being read from. BIOs can be joined together to form a chain (a single BIO is a chain with one component). A chain normally consist of one source/sink BIO and one or more filter BIOs. Data read from or written to the first BIO then traverses the chain to the end (normally a source/sink BIO). SEE ALSO
