configuration parameters

val config_of_sexp : Sexplib.Sexp.t -> config
val sexp_of_config : config -> Sexplib.Sexp.t
type client 

opaque type of a client configuration

val client_of_sexp : Sexplib.Sexp.t -> client
val sexp_of_client : client -> Sexplib.Sexp.t
type server 

opaque type of a server configuration

val server_of_sexp : Sexplib.Sexp.t -> server
val sexp_of_server : server -> Sexplib.Sexp.t


val client : authenticator:X509.Authenticator.a ->
?peer_name:string ->
?ciphers:Ciphersuite.ciphersuite list ->
?version:Core.tls_version * Core.tls_version ->
?hashes:Nocrypto.Hash.hash list ->
?reneg:bool ->
?certificates:own_cert ->
?cached_session:Core.epoch_data ->
?alpn_protocols:string list -> unit -> client

client authenticator ?peer_name ?ciphers ?version ?hashes ?reneg ?certificates ?alpn_protocols is client configuration with the given parameters.

val server : ?ciphers:Ciphersuite.ciphersuite list ->
?version:Core.tls_version * Core.tls_version ->
?hashes:Nocrypto.Hash.hash list ->
?reneg:bool ->
?certificates:own_cert ->
?acceptable_cas:X509.distinguished_name list ->
?authenticator:X509.Authenticator.a ->
?session_cache:session_cache ->
?alpn_protocols:string list -> unit -> server

server ?ciphers ?version ?hashes ?reneg ?certificates ?acceptable_cas ?authenticator ?alpn_protocols is server configuration with the given parameters.

val peer : client -> string -> client

peer client name is client with name as peer_name

Note on ALPN protocol selection

Both Config.client and Config.server constructors accept an alpn_protocols list. The list for server should be given in a descending order of preference. In the case of protocol selection, the server will iterate its list and select the first element that the client's list also advertises.

For example, if the client advertises ["foo""bar""baz"] and the server has ["bar""foo"], "bar" will be selected as the protocol of the handshake.
