ssl-do-handshake

Arguments: stream

This function returns t but is called for its side effect, which is to initiate a handshake between SSL server and client streams.

make-ssl-server-stream and make-ssl-client-stream do not immediately initiate SSL handshake. Instead, handshake is deferred until the first I/O is made on the stream. If there are certificate verification or other errors during SSL handshake, the error will be generated during the I/O request that initiated handshake.

In some circumstances you may want to control when SSL starts. The ssl-do-handshake method initiates SSL handshake. stream must be an SSL client or server stream (such as is created by make-ssl-server-stream and make-ssl-client-stream).

Peer certificate verification (if requested) occurs during SSL handshake. If verification fails, an error will be generated.
