=head1 NAME

SSL_get_default_timeout - get default session timeout value

=head1 SYNOPSIS

 #include <openssl/ssl.h>

 long SSL_get_default_timeout(const SSL *ssl);

=head1 DESCRIPTION

SSL_get_default_timeout() returns the default timeout value assigned to
SSL_SESSION objects negotiated for the protocol valid for B<ssl>.

=head1 NOTES

Whenever a new session is negotiated, it is assigned a timeout value,
after which it will not be accepted for session reuse. If the timeout
value was not explicitly set using
L<SSL_CTX_set_timeout(3)|SSL_CTX_set_timeout(3)>, the hardcoded default
timeout for the protocol will be used.

SSL_get_default_timeout() return this hardcoded value, which is 300 seconds
for all currently supported protocols (SSLv2, SSLv3, and TLSv1).

=head1 RETURN VALUES

See description.
