SSL_get_current_cipher(3)           OpenSSL          SSL_get_current_cipher(3)



NAME
       SSL_get_current_cipher, SSL_get_cipher, SSL_get_cipher_name,
       SSL_get_cipher_bits, SSL_get_cipher_version - get SSL_CIPHER of a
       connection

LIBRARY
       libcrypto, -lcrypto

SYNOPSIS
        #include <openssl/ssl.h>

        SSL_CIPHER *SSL_get_current_cipher(const SSL *ssl);
        #define SSL_get_cipher(s) \
                       SSL_CIPHER_get_name(SSL_get_current_cipher(s))
        #define SSL_get_cipher_name(s) \
                       SSL_CIPHER_get_name(SSL_get_current_cipher(s))
        #define SSL_get_cipher_bits(s,np) \
                       SSL_CIPHER_get_bits(SSL_get_current_cipher(s),np)
        #define SSL_get_cipher_version(s) \
                       SSL_CIPHER_get_version(SSL_get_current_cipher(s))

DESCRIPTION
       SSL_get_current_cipher() returns a pointer to an SSL_CIPHER object
       containing the description of the actually used cipher of a connection
       established with the ssl object.

       SSL_get_cipher() and SSL_get_cipher_name() are identical macros to
       obtain the name of the currently used cipher. SSL_get_cipher_bits() is
       a macro to obtain the number of secret/algorithm bits used and
       SSL_get_cipher_version() returns the protocol name.  See
       SSL_CIPHER_get_name(3) for more details.

RETURN VALUES
       SSL_get_current_cipher() returns the cipher actually used or NULL, when
       no session has been established.
