       SSL_set_num_tickets, SSL_get_num_tickets, SSL_CTX_set_num_tickets,
       SSL_CTX_get_num_tickets - control the number of TLSv1.3 session tickets
       that are	issued

	#include <openssl/ssl.h>

	int SSL_set_num_tickets(SSL *s,	size_t num_tickets);
	size_t SSL_get_num_tickets(SSL *s);
	int SSL_CTX_set_num_tickets(SSL_CTX *ctx, size_t num_tickets);
	size_t SSL_CTX_get_num_tickets(SSL_CTX *ctx);

       SSL_CTX_set_num_tickets() and SSL_set_num_tickets() can be called for a
       server application and set the number of	TLSv1.3	session	tickets	that
       will be sent to the client after	a full handshake. Set the desired
       value (which could be 0)	in the num_tickets argument. Typically these
       functions should	be called before the start of the handshake.

       The default number of tickets is	2; the default number of tickets sent
       following a resumption handshake	is 1 but this cannot be	changed	using
       these functions.	 The number of tickets following a resumption
       handshake can be	reduced	to 0 using custom session ticket callbacks
       (see SSL_CTX_set_session_ticket_cb(3)).

       Tickets are also	issued on receipt of a post-handshake certificate from
       the client following a request by the server using
       SSL_verify_client_post_handshake(3). These new tickets will be
       associated with the updated client identity (i.e. including their
       certificate and verification status). The number	of tickets issued will
       normally	be the same as was used	for the	initial	handshake. If the
       initial handshake was a full handshake then SSL_set_num_tickets() can
       be called again prior to	calling	SSL_verify_client_post_handshake() to
       update the number of tickets that will be sent.

       SSL_CTX_get_num_tickets() and SSL_get_num_tickets() return the number
       of tickets set by a previous call to SSL_CTX_set_num_tickets() or
       SSL_set_num_tickets(), or 2 if no such call has been made.

       SSL_CTX_set_num_tickets() and SSL_set_num_tickets() return 1 on success
       or 0 on failure.

       SSL_CTX_get_num_tickets() and SSL_get_num_tickets() return the number
       of tickets that have been previously set.

       These functions were added in OpenSSL 1.1.1.
