Several OpenSSL structures can have application specific data attached to them. These functions are used internally by OpenSSL to manipulate application specific data attached to a specific structure.

SSL_get_ex_new_index() is used to register a new index for application specific data.

SSL_set_ex_data() is used to store application data at arg for idx into the ssl object.

SSL_get_ex_data() is used to retrieve the information for idx from ssl.

A detailed description for the *_get_ex_new_index() functionality can be found in RSA_get_ex_new_index(3). The *_get_ex_data() and *_set_ex_data() functionality is described in CRYPTO_set_ex_data(3).


An example on how to use the functionality is included in the example verify_callback() in SSL_CTX_set_verify(3).
