CURLINFO_TLS_SESSION explained

NAME

CURLINFO_TLS_SESSION - get TLS session info

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h>
 
CURLcode curl_easy_getinfo(CURL *handle, CURLINFO_TLS_SESSION,
                           struct curl_tlssessioninfo **session);

DESCRIPTION

This option has been superseded by CURLINFO_TLS_SSL_PTR which was added in 7.48.0. The only reason you would use this option instead is if you could be using a version of libcurl earlier than 7.48.0.

This option is exactly the same as CURLINFO_TLS_SSL_PTR except in the case of OpenSSL. If the session backend is CURLSSLBACKEND_OPENSSL the session internals pointer varies depending on the option:

CURLINFO_TLS_SESSION OpenSSL session internals is SSL_CTX *.

CURLINFO_TLS_SSL_PTR OpenSSL session internals is SSL *.

You can obtain an SSL_CTX pointer from an SSL pointer using OpenSSL function SSL_get_SSL_CTX. Therefore unless you need compatibility with older versions of libcurl use CURLINFO_TLS_SSL_PTR. Refer to that document for more information.

PROTOCOLS

All TLS-based

EXAMPLE

CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
if(curl) {
  CURLcode res;
  struct curl_tlssessioninfo *tls;
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com");
  res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
  curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_TLS_SESSION, &tls);
  curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
}

AVAILABILITY

Added in 7.34.0, and supported OpenSSL, GnuTLS, NSS and gskit only up until 7.48.0 was released.

RETURN VALUE

Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
