       SSL_export_keying_material, SSL_export_keying_material_early - obtain
       keying material for application use

	#include <openssl/ssl.h>

	int 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);

	int SSL_export_keying_material_early(SSL *s, unsigned char *out, size_t	olen,
					     const char	*label,	size_t llen,
					     const unsigned char *context,
					     size_t contextlen);

       During the creation of a	TLS or DTLS connection shared keying material
       is established between the two endpoints. The functions
       SSL_export_keying_material() and	SSL_export_keying_material_early()
       enable an application to	use some of this keying	material for its own
       purposes	in accordance with RFC5705 (for	TLSv1.2	and below) or RFC8446
       (for TLSv1.3).

       SSL_export_keying_material() derives keying material using the
       exporter_master_secret established in the handshake.

       SSL_export_keying_material_early() is only usable with TLSv1.3, and
       derives keying material using the early_exporter_master_secret (as
       defined in the TLS 1.3 RFC). For	the client, the
       early_exporter_master_secret is only available when the client attempts
       to send 0-RTT data. For the server, it is only available	when the
       server accepts 0-RTT data.

       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

       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 ignored.	Note that 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 returned.  In	TLSv1.3	a zero length
       context is that same as no context at all and will result in the	same
       keying material being returned.

       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. TLSv1.3 imposes a maximum
       label length of 249 bytes.

       Note that this function is only defined for TLSv1.0 and above, and
       DTLSv1.0	and above. Attempting to use it	in SSLv3 will result in	an

       SSL_export_keying_material() returns 0 or -1 on failure or 1 on

       SSL_export_keying_material_early() returns 0 on failure or 1 on
