OSSL_QUIC_client_method, OSSL_QUIC_client_thread_method - Provide SSL_METHOD objects for QUIC enabled functions

#include <openssl/quic.h>
const SSL_METHOD *OSSL_QUIC_client_method(void);
const SSL_METHOD *OSSL_QUIC_client_thread_method(void);

The OSSL_QUIC_client_method(), OSSL_QUIC_client_thread_method(), and OSSL_QUIC_server_method() functions provide methods for the SSL_CTX_new_ex(3) function to provide QUIC protocol support.

The OSSL_QUIC_client_thread_method() uses threads to allow for a blocking mode of operation and avoid the need to return control to the OpenSSL library for processing time based events. The OSSL_QUIC_client_method() does not use threads and depends on nonblocking mode of operation and the application periodically calling SSL functions.

These functions return pointers to the constant method objects.


OSSL_QUIC_client_method() and OSSL_QUIC_client_thread_method() were added in OpenSSL 3.2.
