SSL_CTX_sess_set_get_cb(3)		     OpenSSL		       SSL_CTX_sess_set_get_cb(3)

NAME
       SSL_CTX_sess_set_new_cb, SSL_CTX_sess_set_remove_cb, SSL_CTX_sess_set_get_cb,
       SSL_CTX_sess_get_new_cb, SSL_CTX_sess_get_remove_cb, SSL_CTX_sess_get_get_cb - provide
       callback functions for server side external session caching

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/ssl.h>

	void SSL_CTX_sess_set_new_cb(SSL_CTX *ctx,
				     int (*new_session_cb)(SSL *, SSL_SESSION *));
	void SSL_CTX_sess_set_remove_cb(SSL_CTX *ctx,
		  void (*remove_session_cb)(SSL_CTX *ctx, SSL_SESSION *));
	void SSL_CTX_sess_set_get_cb(SSL_CTX *ctx,
		  SSL_SESSION (*get_session_cb)(SSL *, unsigned char *, int, int *));

	int (*SSL_CTX_sess_get_new_cb(SSL_CTX *ctx))(struct ssl_st *ssl, SSL_SESSION *sess);
	void (*SSL_CTX_sess_get_remove_cb(SSL_CTX *ctx))(struct ssl_ctx_st *ctx, SSL_SESSION *sess);
	SSL_SESSION *(*SSL_CTX_sess_get_get_cb(SSL_CTX *ctx))(struct ssl_st *ssl, unsigned char *data, int len, int *copy);

	int (*new_session_cb)(struct ssl_st *ssl, SSL_SESSION *sess);
	void (*remove_session_cb)(struct ssl_ctx_st *ctx, SSL_SESSION *sess);
	SSL_SESSION *(*get_session_cb)(struct ssl_st *ssl, unsigned char *data,
		      int len, int *copy);

DESCRIPTION
       SSL_CTX_sess_set_new_cb() sets the callback function, which is automatically called when-
       ever a new session was negotiated.

       SSL_CTX_sess_set_remove_cb() sets the callback function, which is automatically called
       whenever a session is removed by the SSL engine, because it is considered faulty or the
       session has become obsolete because of exceeding the timeout value.

       SSL_CTX_sess_set_get_cb() sets the callback function which is called, whenever a SSL/TLS
       client proposed to resume a session but the session could not be found in the internal
       session cache (see SSL_CTX_set_session_cache_mode(3)).  (SSL/TLS server only.)

       SSL_CTX_sess_get_new_cb(), SSL_CTX_sess_get_remove_cb(), and SSL_CTX_sess_get_get_cb()
       allow to retrieve the function pointers of the provided callback functions. If a callback
       function has not been set, the NULL pointer is returned.

NOTES
       In order to allow external session caching, synchronization with the internal session
       cache is realized via callback functions. Inside these callback functions, session can be
       saved to disk or put into a database using the d2i_SSL_SESSION(3) interface.

       The new_session_cb() is called, whenever a new session has been negotiated and session
       caching is enabled (see SSL_CTX_set_session_cache_mode(3)).  The new_session_cb() is
       passed the ssl connection and the ssl session sess. If the callback returns 0, the session
       will be immediately removed again.

       The remove_session_cb() is called, whenever the SSL engine removes a session from the
       internal cache. This happens when the session is removed because it is expired or when a
       connection was not shutdown cleanly. It also happens for all sessions in the internal ses-
       sion cache when SSL_CTX_free(3) is called. The remove_session_cb() is passed the ctx and
       the ssl session sess. It does not provide any feedback.

       The get_session_cb() is only called on SSL/TLS servers with the session id proposed by the
       client. The get_session_cb() is always called, also when session caching was disabled. The
       get_session_cb() is passed the ssl connection, the session id of length length at the mem-
       ory location data. With the parameter copy the callback can require the SSL engine to
       increment the reference count of the SSL_SESSION object, Normally the reference count is
       not incremented and therefore the session must not be explicitly freed with SSL_SES-
       SION_free(3).
