SSL_EXPORT_KEYING_MATERIAL(3) DragonFly Library Functions Manual
SSL_export_keying_material - obtain keying material for application use
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);
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 RFC 5705.
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 s, olen bytes of data will be written to out.
The application specific context should be supplied in the location
pointed to by context and should be contextlen bytes long. Provision of
a context is optional. If the context should be omitted entirely, then
use_context should be set to 0. Otherwise it should be any other value.
If use_context is 0, then the values of context and contextlen are
In TLSv1.2 and below, a zero length context is treated differently from
no context at all, and will result in different keying material being
An application specific label should be provided in the location pointed
to by label and should be llen bytes long. Typically this will be a
value from the IANA Exporter Label Registry:
Alternatively, labels beginning with "EXPERIMENTAL" are permitted by the
standard to be used without registration.
SSL_export_keying_material() returns 1 on success or 0 or -1 on failure.
SSL_export_keying_material() first appeared in OpenSSL 1.0.1 and has been
available since OpenBSD 5.3.
