SSL_SET_TMP_ECDH(3)    FreeBSD Library Functions Manual	   SSL_SET_TMP_ECDH(3)

NAME
     SSL_set_tmp_ecdh, SSL_CTX_set_tmp_ecdh, SSL_set_ecdh_auto,
     SSL_CTX_set_ecdh_auto, SSL_set_tmp_ecdh_callback,
     SSL_CTX_set_tmp_ecdh_callback -- select a curve for ECDH ephemeral	key
     exchange

SYNOPSIS
     #include <openssl/ssl.h>

     long
     SSL_set_tmp_ecdh(SSL *ssl,	EC_KEY *ecdh);

     long
     SSL_CTX_set_tmp_ecdh(SSL_CTX *ctx,	EC_KEY *ecdh);

     long
     SSL_set_ecdh_auto(SSL *ssl, int state);

     long
     SSL_CTX_set_ecdh_auto(SSL_CTX *ctx, int state);

     void
     SSL_set_tmp_ecdh_callback(SSL *ssl,
	 EC_KEY	*(*ecdh)(SSL *ssl, int is_export, int keylength));

     void
     SSL_CTX_set_tmp_ecdh_callback(SSL_CTX *ctx,
	 EC_KEY	*(*ecdh)(SSL *ssl, int is_export, int keylength));

DESCRIPTION
     Automatic EC curve	selection and generation is always enabled in Li-
     breSSL, and applications cannot manually provide EC keys for use with
     ECDHE key exchange.

     The only remaining	effect of SSL_set_tmp_ecdh() is	that the curve of the
     given ecdh	key becomes the	only curve enabled for the ssl connection, so
     it	is equivalent to calling SSL_set1_groups_list(3) with the same single
     curve name.

     SSL_CTX_set_tmp_ecdh() has	the same effect	on all connections that	will
     be	created	from ctx in the	future.

     The functions SSL_set_ecdh_auto(),	SSL_CTX_set_ecdh_auto(),
     SSL_set_tmp_ecdh_callback(), and SSL_CTX_set_tmp_ecdh_callback() are dep-
     recated and have no effect.

RETURN VALUES
     SSL_set_tmp_ecdh()	and SSL_CTX_set_tmp_ecdh() return 1 on success or 0 on
     failure.

     SSL_set_ecdh_auto(), SSL_CTX_set_ecdh_auto(),
     SSL_set_tmp_ecdh_callback(), and SSL_CTX_set_tmp_ecdh_callback() always
     return 1.

HISTORY

     have been available since OpenBSD 4.5.

     SSL_CTX_set_ecdh_auto() and SSL_set_ecdh_auto() first appeared in OpenSSL
     1.0.2 and have been available since OpenBSD 5.7.
