CURLOPT_SSL_FALSESTART(3) curl_easy_setopt options CURLOPT_SSL_FALSESTART(3)

NAME

CURLOPT_SSL_FALSESTART - enable TLS false start

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h>
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_SSL_FALSESTART, long enable);

DESCRIPTION

Pass a long as parameter set to 1L to enable or 0 to disable.
This option determines whether libcurl should use false start during the TLS handshake. False start is a mode where a TLS client will start sending application data before verifying the server's Finished message, thus saving a round trip when performing a full handshake.

DEFAULT

0

PROTOCOLS

All TLS based protocols: HTTPS, FTPS, IMAPS, POP3S, SMTPS etc.

EXAMPLE

CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
if(curl) {
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com");
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_SSL_FALSESTART, 1L);
  curl_easy_perform(curl);
}

AVAILABILITY

Added in 7.42.0. This option is currently only supported by the NSS and Secure Transport (on iOS 7.0 or later, or OS X 10.9 or later) TLS backends.

RETURN VALUE

Returns CURLE_OK if false start is supported by the SSL backend, otherwise returns CURLE_NOT_BUILT_IN.
