.SH "NOTES"
.IX Header "NOTES"
The following mode changes are available:
.IP "\s-1SSL_MODE_ENABLE_PARTIAL_WRITE\s0" 4
.IX Item "SSL_MODE_ENABLE_PARTIAL_WRITE"
Allow SSL_write_ex(..., n, &r) to return with 0 < r < n (i.e. report success
when just a single record has been written). This works in a similar way for
\&\fBSSL_write()\fR. When not set (the default), \fBSSL_write_ex()\fR or \fBSSL_write()\fR will only
report success once the complete chunk was written. Once \fBSSL_write_ex()\fR or
\&\fBSSL_write()\fR returns successful, \fBr\fR bytes have been written and the next call
to \fBSSL_write_ex()\fR or \fBSSL_write()\fR must only send the n\-r bytes left, imitating
the behaviour of \fBwrite()\fR.
.IP "\s-1SSL_MODE_ACCEPT_MOVING_WRITE_BUFFER\s0" 4
.IX Item "SSL_MODE_ACCEPT_MOVING_WRITE_BUFFER"
Make it possible to retry \fBSSL_write_ex()\fR or \fBSSL_write()\fR with changed buffer
location (the buffer contents must stay the same). This is not the default to
avoid the misconception that nonblocking \fBSSL_write()\fR behaves like
nonblocking \fBwrite()\fR.
.IP "\s-1SSL_MODE_AUTO_RETRY\s0" 4
.IX Item "SSL_MODE_AUTO_RETRY"
During normal operations, non-application data records might need to be sent or
received that the application is not aware of.
If a non-application data record was processed,
\&\fBSSL_read_ex\fR\|(3) and \fBSSL_read\fR\|(3) can return with a failure and indicate the
need to retry with \fB\s-1SSL_ERROR_WANT_READ\s0\fR.
If such a non-application data record was processed, the flag
\&\fB\s-1SSL_MODE_AUTO_RETRY\s0\fR causes it to try to process the next record instead of
returning.
.Sp
In a nonblocking environment applications must be prepared to handle
incomplete read/write operations.
Setting \fB\s-1SSL_MODE_AUTO_RETRY\s0\fR for a nonblocking \fB\s-1BIO\s0\fR will process
non-application data records until either no more data is available or
an application data record has been processed.
.Sp
In a blocking environment, applications are not always prepared to
deal with the functions returning intermediate reports such as retry
requests, and setting the \fB\s-1SSL_MODE_AUTO_RETRY\s0\fR flag will cause the functions
to only return after successfully processing an application data record or a
failure.
.Sp
Turning off \fB\s-1SSL_MODE_AUTO_RETRY\s0\fR can be useful with blocking \fB\s-1BIO\s0\fRs in case
they are used in combination with something like \fBselect()\fR or \fBpoll()\fR.
Otherwise the call to \fBSSL_read()\fR or \fBSSL_read_ex()\fR might hang when a
non-application record was sent and no application data was sent.
.IP "\s-1SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS\s0" 4
.IX Item "SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS"
When we no longer need a read buffer or a write buffer for a given \s-1SSL,\s0
then release the memory we were using to hold it.
Using this flag can
save around 34k per idle \s-1SSL\s0 connection.
This flag has no effect on \s-1SSL\s0 v2 connections, or on \s-1DTLS\s0 connections.
.IP "\s-1SSL_MODE_SEND_FALLBACK_SCSV\s0" 4
.IX Item "SSL_MODE_SEND_FALLBACK_SCSV"
Send \s-1TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV\s0 in the ClientHello.
To be set only by applications that reconnect with a downgraded protocol
version; see draft\-ietf\-tls\-downgrade\-scsv\-00 for details.
.Sp
\&\s-1DO NOT ENABLE THIS\s0 if your application attempts a normal handshake.
Only use this in explicit fallback retries, following the guidance
in draft\-ietf\-tls\-downgrade\-scsv\-00.
.IP "\s-1SSL_MODE_ASYNC\s0" 4
.IX Item "SSL_MODE_ASYNC"
Enable asynchronous processing. \s-1TLS I/O\s0 operations may indicate a retry with
\&\s-1SSL_ERROR_WANT_ASYNC\s0 with this mode set if an asynchronous capable engine is
used to perform cryptographic operations. See \fBSSL_get_error\fR\|(3).
.IP "\s-1SSL_MODE_DTLS_SCTP_LABEL_LENGTH_BUG\s0" 4
.IX Item "SSL_MODE_DTLS_SCTP_LABEL_LENGTH_BUG"
Older versions of OpenSSL had a bug in the computation of the label length
used for computing the endpoint-pair shared secret. The bug was that the
terminating zero was included in the length of the label. Setting this option
enables this behaviour to allow interoperability with such broken
implementations. Please note that setting this option breaks interoperability
with correct implementations. This option only applies to \s-1DTLS\s0 over \s-1SCTP.\s0
.PP
All modes are off by default except for \s-1SSL_MODE_AUTO_RETRY\s0 which is on by
default since 1.1.1.
