NAME

BIO -- I/O abstraction

SYNOPSIS

#include <openssl/bio.h>

DESCRIPTION

A BIO is an I/O abstraction, it hides many of the underlying I/O details from an application. If an application uses a BIO for its I/O, it can transparently handle SSL connections, unencrypted network connections and file I/O. There are two types of BIO, a source/sink BIO and a filter BIO. As its name implies, a source/sink BIO is a source and/or sink of data, examples include a socket BIO and a file BIO. A filter BIO takes data from one BIO and passes it through to another, or to the application. The data may be left unmodified (for example a mes- sage digest BIO) or translated (for example an encryption BIO). The effect of a filter BIO may change according to the I/O operation it is performing: for example an encryption BIO will encrypt data if it is being written to and decrypt data if it is being read from. BIOs can be joined together to form a chain (a single BIO is a chain with one component). A chain normally consist of one source/sink BIO and one or more filter BIOs. Data read from or written to the first BIO then traverses the chain to the end (normally a source/sink BIO).

SYNOPSIS

#include <openssl/x509.h> int TYPE_get_ex_new_index(long argl, void *argp, CRYPTO_EX_new *new_func, CRYPTO_EX_dup *dup_func, CRYPTO_EX_free *free_func); int TYPE_set_ex_data(TYPE *d, int idx, void *arg); void *TYPE_get_ex_data(TYPE *d, int idx);

DESCRIPTION

In the description here, TYPE is used a placeholder for any of the OpenSSL datatypes listed in CRYPTO_get_ex_new_index(3). These functions handle application-specific data for OpenSSL data structures. TYPE_get_ex_new_index() is a macro that calls CRYPTO_get_ex_new_index() with the correct index value. TYPE_set_ex_data() is a function that calls CRYPTO_set_ex_data() with an offset into the opaque exdata part of the TYPE object. TYPE_get_ex_data() is a function that calls CRYPTO_get_ex_data() with an offset into the opaque exdata part of the TYPE object.

RETURN VALUES

TYPE_get_ex_new_index() returns a new index on success or -1 on error. TYPE_set_ex_data() returns 1 on success or 0 on error. TYPE_get_ex_data() returns the application data or NULL if an error occurred.

SEE ALSO

CRYPTO_get_ex_new_index(3).
