       observing protocol messages

SYNOPSIS
        #include <openssl/ssl.h>

        void SSL_CTX_set_msg_callback(SSL_CTX *ctx,
                                      void (*cb)(int write_p, int version,
                                                 int content_type, const void *buf,
                                                 size_t len, SSL *ssl, void *arg));
        void SSL_CTX_set_msg_callback_arg(SSL_CTX *ctx, void *arg);

        void SSL_set_msg_callback(SSL *ssl,
                                  void (*cb)(int write_p, int version,
                                             int content_type, const void *buf,
                                             size_t len, SSL *ssl, void *arg));
        void SSL_set_msg_callback_arg(SSL *ssl, void *arg);

DESCRIPTION
       SSL_CTX_set_msg_callback() or SSL_set_msg_callback() can be used to
       define a message callback function cb for observing all SSL/TLS protocol
       messages (such as handshake messages) that are received or sent, as well
       as other events that occur during processing.
       SSL_CTX_set_msg_callback_arg() and SSL_set_msg_callback_arg() can be used
       to set argument arg to the callback function, which is available for
       arbitrary application use.

       SSL_CTX_set_msg_callback() and SSL_CTX_set_msg_callback_arg() specify
       default settings that will be copied to new SSL objects by SSL_new(3).
       SSL_set_msg_callback() and SSL_set_msg_callback_arg() modify the actual
       settings of an SSL object. Using a NULL pointer for cb disables the
       message callback.

       When cb is called by the SSL/TLS library the function arguments have the
       following meaning:

       write_p
           This flag is 0 when a protocol message has been received and 1 when a
           protocol message has been sent.

       version
           The protocol version according to which the protocol message is
           interpreted by the library such as TLS1_3_VERSION, TLS1_2_VERSION
           etc.  This is set to 0 for the SSL3_RT_HEADER pseudo content type
           (see NOTES below).

       content_type
           This is one of the content type values defined in the protocol
           specification (SSL3_RT_CHANGE_CIPHER_SPEC, SSL3_RT_ALERT,
           SSL3_RT_HANDSHAKE; but never SSL3_RT_APPLICATION_DATA because the
           callback will only be called for protocol messages). Alternatively it
           may be a "pseudo" content type. These pseudo content types are used
           to signal some other event in the processing of data (see NOTES
           below).

       buf, len
           buf points to a buffer containing the protocol message or other data
           (in the case of pseudo content types), which consists of len bytes.
           The buffer is no longer valid after the callback function has
           returned.

       ssl The SSL object that received or sent the message.

       arg The user-defined argument optionally defined by
           SSL_CTX_set_msg_callback_arg() or SSL_set_msg_callback_arg().

NOTES
       Protocol messages are passed to the callback function after decryption
       and fragment collection where applicable. (Thus record boundaries are not
       visible.)

       If processing a received protocol message results in an error, the
       callback function may not be called.  For example, the callback function
       will never see messages that are considered too large to be processed.

       Due to automatic protocol version negotiation, version is not necessarily
       the protocol version used by the sender of the message: If a TLS 1.0
       ClientHello message is received by an SSL 3.0-only server, version will
       be SSL3_VERSION.

       Pseudo content type values may be sent at various points during the
       processing of data. The following pseudo content types are currently
       defined:

       SSL3_RT_HEADER
           Used when a record is sent or received. The buf contains the record
           header bytes only.

       SSL3_RT_INNER_CONTENT_TYPE
           Used when an encrypted TLSv1.3 record is sent or received. In
           encrypted TLSv1.3 records the content type in the record header is
           always SSL3_RT_APPLICATION_DATA. The real content type for the record
           is contained in an "inner" content type. buf contains the encoded
           "inner" content type byte.

RETURN VALUES
       SSL_CTX_set_msg_callback(), SSL_CTX_set_msg_callback_arg(),
       SSL_set_msg_callback() and SSL_set_msg_callback_arg() do not return
       values.

HISTORY
       The pseudo content type SSL3_RT_INNER_CONTENT_TYPE was added in OpenSSL
       1.1.1.
