SSL_free(3)				     OpenSSL				      SSL_free(3)

NAME
       SSL_free - free an allocated SSL structure

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/ssl.h>

	void SSL_free(SSL *ssl);

DESCRIPTION
       SSL_free() decrements the reference count of ssl, and removes the SSL structure pointed to
       by ssl and frees up the allocated memory if the the reference count has reached 0.

NOTES
       SSL_free() also calls the free()ing procedures for indirectly affected items, if applica-
       ble: the buffering BIO, the read and write BIOs, cipher lists specially created for this
       ssl, the SSL_SESSION.  Do not explicitly free these indirectly freed up items before or
       after calling SSL_free(), as trying to free things twice may lead to program failure.

       The ssl session has reference counts from two users: the SSL object, for which the refer-
       ence count is removed by SSL_free() and the internal session cache. If the session is con-
       sidered bad, because SSL_shutdown(3) was not called for the connection and SSL_set_shut-
       down(3) was not used to set the SSL_SENT_SHUTDOWN state, the session will also be removed
       from the session cache as required by RFC2246.

RETURN VALUES
       SSL_free() does not provide diagnostic information.

       SSL_new(3), SSL_clear(3), SSL_shutdown(3), SSL_set_shutdown(3), ssl(3)
