Generally speaking, Unix systems are commercial, closed source and propriety operating systems so it is expensive to customize for supercomputing projects. Linux, on the other hand, is free and easier to customize.

ssl_get_ex_data_x509_store_ctx_idx(3) [redhat man page]

SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx(3)				      OpenSSL				     SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx(3)

NAME
SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx - get ex_data index to access SSL structure from X509_STORE_CTX SYNOPSIS
#include <openssl/ssl.h> int SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx(void); DESCRIPTION
SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx() returns the index number under which the pointer to the SSL object is stored into the X509_STORE_CTX object. NOTES
Whenever a X509_STORE_CTX object is created for the verification of the peers certificate during a handshake, a pointer to the SSL object is stored into the X509_STORE_CTX object to identify the connection affected. To retrieve this pointer the X509_STORE_CTX_get_ex_data() function can be used with the correct index. This index is globally the same for all X509_STORE_CTX objects and can be retrieved using SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx(). The index value is set when SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx() is first called either by the appli- cation program directly or indirectly during other SSL setup functions or during the handshake. The value depends on other index values defined for X509_STORE_CTX objects before the SSL index is created. RETURN VALUES
>=0 The index value to access the pointer. <0 An error occurred, check the error stack for a detailed error message. EXAMPLES
The index returned from SSL_get_ex_data_X509_STORE_CTX_idx() allows to access the SSL object for the connection to be accessed during the verify_callback() when checking the peers certificate. Please check the example in SSL_CTX_set_verify(3), SEE ALSO
