=head1 NAME

SSL_export_keying_material - obtain keying material for application use

=head1 SYNOPSIS

 #include <openssl/ssl.h>

 int SSL_export_keying_material(SSL *s, unsigned char *out, size_t olen,
                                const char *label, size_t llen,
                                const unsigned char *context,
                                size_t contextlen, int use_context);

=head1 DESCRIPTION

During the creation of a TLS or DTLS connection shared keying material is
established between the two endpoints. The function SSL_export_keying_material()
enables an application to use some of this keying material for its own purposes
in accordance with RFC5705.

An application may need to securely establish the context within which this
keying material will be used. For example this may include identifiers for the
application session, application algorithms or parameters, or the lifetime of
the context. The context value is left to the application but must be the same
on both sides of the communication.

For a given SSL connection B<s>, B<olen> bytes of data will be written to
B<out>. The application specific context should be supplied in the location
pointed to by B<context> and should be B<contextlen> bytes long. Provision of
a context is optional. If the context should be omitted entirely then
B<use_context> should be set to 0. Otherwise it should be any other value. If
B<use_context> is 0 then the values of B<context> and B<contextlen> are ignored.
Note that a zero length context is treated differently to no context at all, and
will result in different keying material being returned.

An application specific label should be provided in the location pointed to by
B<label> and should be B<llen> bytes long. Typically this will be a value from
the IANA Exporter Label Registry
(L<https://www.iana.org/assignments/tls-parameters/tls-parameters.xhtml#exporter-labels>).
Alternatively labels beginning with "EXPERIMENTAL" are permitted by the standard
to be used without registration.

Note that this function is only defined for TLSv1.0 and above, and DTLSv1.0 and
above. Attempting to use it in SSLv3 will result in an error.

=head1 RETURN VALUES

SSL_export_keying_material() returns 0 or -1 on failure or 1 on success.
