SSL_free - free an allocated SSL structure
void SSL_free(SSL *ssl);
decrements the reference count of ssl
, and removes the
SSL structure pointed to by ssl
and frees up the allocated memory if
the reference count has reached 0.
also calls the free()
ing procedures for indirectly
affected items, if applicable: the buffering BIO, the read and write BIOs,
cipher lists specially created for this ssl
, the SSL_SESSION
not explicitly free these indirectly freed up items before or after calling
, 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 reference count is removed by SSL_free()
and the internal session
cache. If the session is considered bad, because SSL_shutdown(3)
not called for the connection and SSL_set_shutdown(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.
