CURLINFO_TLS_SESSION − get TLS session info
curl_easy_getinfo(CURL *handle, CURLINFO_TLS_SESSION,
struct curl_tlssessioninfo **session);
This option has been superseded by CURLINFO_TLS_SSL_PTR(3) which was added in 7.48.0. The only reason you would use this option instead is if you could be using a version of libcurl earlier than 7.48.0.
This option is exactly the same as CURLINFO_TLS_SSL_PTR(3) except in the case of OpenSSL. If the session backend is CURLSSLBACKEND_OPENSSL the session internals pointer varies depending on the option:
CURLINFO_TLS_SESSION OpenSSL session internals is SSL_CTX *.
CURLINFO_TLS_SSL_PTR OpenSSL session internals is SSL *.
You can obtain an SSL_CTX pointer from an SSL pointer using OpenSSL function SSL_get_SSL_CTX. Therefore unless you need compatibility with older versions of libcurl use CURLINFO_TLS_SSL_PTR(3). Refer to that document for more information.
CURL *curl =
struct curl_tlssessioninfo *tls;
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com");
res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_TLS_SESSION, &tls);
Added in 7.34.0, and supported OpenSSL, GnuTLS, NSS and gskit only up until 7.48.0 was released.
Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
