NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for ssl_shutdown (netbsd section 3)

SSL_shutdown(3) 			     OpenSSL				  SSL_shutdown(3)

NAME
       SSL_shutdown - shut down a TLS/SSL connection

LIBRARY
       libcrypto, -lcrypto

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/ssl.h>

	int SSL_shutdown(SSL *ssl);

DESCRIPTION
       SSL_shutdown() shuts down an active TLS/SSL connection. It sends the "close notify"
       shutdown alert to the peer.

NOTES
       SSL_shutdown() tries to send the "close notify" shutdown alert to the peer.  Whether the
       operation succeeds or not, the SSL_SENT_SHUTDOWN flag is set and a currently open session
       is considered closed and good and will be kept in the session cache for further reuse.

       The shutdown procedure consists of 2 steps: the sending of the "close notify" shutdown
       alert and the reception of the peer's "close notify" shutdown alert. According to the TLS
       standard, it is acceptable for an application to only send its shutdown alert and then
       close the underlying connection without waiting for the peer's response (this way
       resources can be saved, as the process can already terminate or serve another connection).
       When the underlying connection shall be used for more communications, the complete
       shutdown procedure (bidirectional "close notify" alerts) must be performed, so that the
       peers stay synchronized.

       SSL_shutdown() supports both uni- and bidirectional shutdown by its 2 step behaviour.

       When the application is the first party to send the "close notify" alert, SSL_shutdown()
       will only send the alert and then set the SSL_SENT_SHUTDOWN flag (so that the session is
       considered good and will be kept in cache). SSL_shutdown() will then return with 0. If a
       unidirectional shutdown is enough (the underlying connection shall be closed anyway), this
       first call to SSL_shutdown() is sufficient. In order to complete the bidirectional
       shutdown handshake, SSL_shutdown() must be called again. The second call will make
       SSL_shutdown() wait for the peer's "close notify" shutdown alert. On success, the second
       call to SSL_shutdown() will return with 1.
       If the peer already sent the "close notify" alert and it was already processed implicitly
       inside another function (SSL_read(3)), the SSL_RECEIVED_SHUTDOWN flag is set.
       SSL_shutdown() will send the "close notify" alert, set the SSL_SENT_SHUTDOWN flag and will
       immediately return with 1. Whether SSL_RECEIVED_SHUTDOWN is already set can be checked
       using the SSL_get_shutdown() (see also SSL_set_shutdown(3) call.

       It is therefore recommended, to check the return value of SSL_shutdown() and call
       SSL_shutdown() again, if the bidirectional shutdown is not yet complete (return value of
       the first call is 0). As the shutdown is not specially handled in the SSLv2 protocol,
       SSL_shutdown() will succeed on the first call.

       The behaviour of SSL_shutdown() additionally depends on the underlying BIO.

       If the underlying BIO is blocking, SSL_shutdown() will only return once the handshake step
       has been finished or an error occurred.

       If the underlying BIO is non-blocking, SSL_shutdown() will also return when the underlying
       BIO could not satisfy the needs of SSL_shutdown() to continue the handshake. In this case
       a call to SSL_get_error() with the return value of SSL_shutdown() will yield
       SSL_ERROR_WANT_READ or SSL_ERROR_WANT_WRITE. The calling process then must repeat the call
       after taking appropriate action to satisfy the needs of SSL_shutdown().	The action
       depends on the underlying BIO. When using a non-blocking socket, nothing is to be done,
       but select() can be used to check for the required condition. When using a buffering BIO,
       like a BIO pair, data must be written into or retrieved out of the BIO before being able
       to continue.

       SSL_shutdown() can be modified to only set the connection to "shutdown" state but not
       actually send the "close notify" alert messages, see SSL_CTX_set_quiet_shutdown(3).  When
       "quiet shutdown" is enabled, SSL_shutdown() will always succeed and return 1.

RETURN VALUES
       The following return values can occur:

       0   The shutdown is not yet finished. Call SSL_shutdown() for a second time, if a
	   bidirectional shutdown shall be performed.  The output of SSL_get_error(3) may be
	   misleading, as an erroneous SSL_ERROR_SYSCALL may be flagged even though no error
	   occurred.

       1   The shutdown was successfully completed. The "close notify" alert was sent and the
	   peer's "close notify" alert was received.

       -1  The shutdown was not successful because a fatal error occurred either at the protocol
	   level or a connection failure occurred. It can also occur if action is need to
	   continue the operation for non-blocking BIOs.  Call SSL_get_error(3) with the return
	   value ret to find out the reason.
