SSL_ACCEPT(3)                OpenSSL                SSL_ACCEPT(3)

NAME

     SSL_accept - wait for a TLS/SSL client to initiate a TLS/SSL
     handshake

SYNOPSIS

      #include <openssl/ssl.h>

      int SSL_accept(SSL *ssl);

DESCRIPTION

     SSL_accept() waits for a TLS/SSL client to initiate the
     TLS/SSL handshake. The communication channel must already
     have been set and assigned to the ssl by setting an underly-
     ing BIO.

NOTES

     The behaviour of SSL_accept() depends on the underlying BIO.

     If the underlying BIO is blocking, SSL_accept() will only
     return once the handshake has been finished or an error
     occurred, except for SGC (Server Gated Cryptography). For
     SGC, SSL_accept() may return with -1, but SSL_get_error()
     will yield SSL_ERROR_WANT_READ/WRITE and SSL_accept() should
     be called again.

     If the underlying BIO is non-blocking, SSL_accept() will
     also return when the underlying BIO could not satisfy the
     needs of SSL_accept() to continue the handshake, indicating
     the problem by the return value -1. In this case a call to
     SSL_get_error() with the return value of SSL_accept() will
     yield SSL_ERROR_WANT_READ or SSL_ERROR_WANT_WRITE. The cal-
     ling process then must repeat the call after taking
     appropriate action to satisfy the needs of SSL_accept(). The
     action depends on the underlying BIO. When using a non-
     blocking socket, nothing is to be done, but select() can be
     used to check for the required condition. When using a
     buffering BIO, like a BIO pair, data must be written into or
     retrieved out of the BIO before being able to continue.

RETURN VALUES

     The following return values can occur:

     1   The TLS/SSL handshake was successfully completed, a
         TLS/SSL connection has been established.

     0   The TLS/SSL handshake was not successful but was shut
         down controlled and by the specifications of the TLS/SSL
         protocol. Call SSL_get_error() with the return value ret
         to find out the reason.

     <0  The TLS/SSL handshake was not successful because a fatal
         error occurred either at the protocol level or a

         It can also occur of action is need to continue the
         operation for non-blocking BIOs. Call SSL_get_error()
         with the return value ret to find out the reason.
