NSS:SSL functions

The public functions listed here are used to configure sockets for communication via the SSL and TLS protocols. In addition to the functions listed here, applications that support SSL use some of the Certificate functions, Crypto functions, and Utility functions described below on this page.

Other sources of information:

  • The NSS_reference documents the functions most commonly used by applications to support SSL.
  • The NSS home page links to additional SSL documentation.

If documentation is available for a function listed below, the function name is linked to either its MDC wiki page or its entry in the old SSL Reference. The Mozilla Cross Reference (MXR) link for each function provides access to the function definition, prototype definition, and source code references. The NSS version column indicates which versions of NSS support the function.
