Type Alias


A pointer to an opaque I/O connection object.


typedef const void *SSLConnectionRef;


The I/O connection object refers to data that identifies a connection. The connection data is opaque to Secure Transport; you can set it to any value that your application can use in the callback functions SSLReadFunc and SSLWriteFunc to uniquely identify the connection, such as a socket or endpoint. Use the SSLSetConnection function to assign a value to the connection object.
