Session ID reuse in SSL connexion (client-side)

Feb 18 '14 at 22:15

Hi, Using the CkSocket component as an SSL client, I need to use the 'Session ID reuse' mechanism to prevent full handshake at each connexion. I do not see in the API any method to manipulate the session ID and to transmit it from one CkSocket object to another. Is it possible to force the use of the session ID within a single CkSocket object to trigger an abbreviated handshake, or to retrieve the session id from a previous connexion to initialize a new one (what I'd rather do)?

Regards, Nicolas


This is on Chilkat's very long TO-DO list. When attention is turned back to SSL/TLS, all the feature requests that have accumulated will be tackled at once. However, it may be many months from now..
