NAME¶SSL_want, SSL_want_nothing, SSL_want_read, SSL_want_write, SSL_want_x509_lookup, SSL_want_async, SSL_want_async_job, SSL_want_client_hello_cb - obtain state information TLS/SSL I/O operation
#include <openssl/ssl.h> int SSL_want(const SSL *ssl); int SSL_want_nothing(const SSL *ssl); int SSL_want_read(const SSL *ssl); int SSL_want_write(const SSL *ssl); int SSL_want_x509_lookup(const SSL *ssl); int SSL_want_async(const SSL *ssl); int SSL_want_async_job(const SSL *ssl); int SSL_want_client_hello_cb(const SSL *ssl);
DESCRIPTION¶SSL_want() returns state information for the SSL object ssl.
The other SSL_want_*() calls are shortcuts for the possible states returned by SSL_want().
NOTES¶SSL_want() examines the internal state information of the SSL object. Its return values are similar to that of SSL_get_error(3). Unlike SSL_get_error(3), which also evaluates the error queue, the results are obtained by examining an internal state flag only. The information must therefore only be used for normal operation under non-blocking I/O. Error conditions are not handled and must be treated using SSL_get_error(3).
The result returned by SSL_want() should always be consistent with the result of SSL_get_error(3).
RETURN VALUES¶The following return values can currently occur for SSL_want():
- There is no data to be written or to be read.
- There are data in the SSL buffer that must be written to the underlying BIO layer in order to complete the actual SSL_*() operation. A call to SSL_get_error(3) should return SSL_ERROR_WANT_WRITE.
- More data must be read from the underlying BIO layer in order to complete the actual SSL_*() operation. A call to SSL_get_error(3) should return SSL_ERROR_WANT_READ.
- The operation did not complete because an application callback set by SSL_CTX_set_client_cert_cb() has asked to be called again. A call to SSL_get_error(3) should return SSL_ERROR_WANT_X509_LOOKUP.
- An asynchronous operation partially completed and was then paused. See SSL_get_all_async_fds(3). A call to SSL_get_error(3) should return SSL_ERROR_WANT_ASYNC.
- The asynchronous job could not be started because there were no async jobs available in the pool (see ASYNC_init_thread(3)). A call to SSL_get_error(3) should return SSL_ERROR_WANT_ASYNC_JOB.
- The operation did not complete because an application callback set by SSL_CTX_set_client_hello_cb() has asked to be called again. A call to SSL_get_error(3) should return SSL_ERROR_WANT_CLIENT_HELLO_CB.
SSL_want_nothing(), SSL_want_read(), SSL_want_write(), SSL_want_x509_lookup(), SSL_want_async(), SSL_want_async_job(), and SSL_want_client_hello_cb() return 1, when the corresponding condition is true or 0 otherwise.

HISTORY¶The SSL_want_client_hello_cb() function and the SSL_CLIENT_HELLO_CB return value were added in OpenSSL 1.1.1.
