NAME

       ssl_session_cache_api - Defines the API for the TLS session cache so
           that the data storage scheme can be replaced by
           defining a new callback module implementing this API.

COMMON DATA TYPES

       The following data types are used in the functions below:

       cache_ref() = opaque()

       key() = {partialkey(), session_id()}

       partialkey() = opaque()

       session_id() = binary()

       session() = opaque()

EXPORTS

       delete(Cache, Key) -> _

              Types:

                  Cache = cache_ref()
                  Key = key()

              Deletes a cache entry. Will only be called from the cache handling process.

       foldl(Fun, Acc0, Cache) -> Acc

              Types:

              Calls  Fun(Elem, AccIn) on successive elements of the cache, starting with AccIn ==
              Acc0. Fun/2 must return a new accumulator which is passed to  the  next  call.  The
              function  returns the final value of the accumulator. Acc0 is returned if the cache
              is empty.

       init() -> opaque()

              Types:

              Performs possible initializations of the cache and returns a reference to  it  that
              will  be  used as parameter to the other api functions. Will be called by the cache
              handling processes init function, hence putting the same requirements on  it  as  a
              normal process init function.

       lookup(Cache, Key) -> Entry

              Types:

                  Cache = cache_ref()
                  Key = key()
                  Entry = session() | undefined

              Looks up a cache entry. Should be callable from any process.

       select_session(Cache, PartialKey) -> [session()]

              Types:

                  Cache = cache_ref()
                  PartialKey = partialkey()
                  Session = session()

              Selects sessions that could be reused. Should be callable from any process.

       terminate(Cache) -> _

              Types:

                 Cache = term() - as returned by init/0

              Takes  care  of  possible  cleanup  that  is needed when the cache handling process
              terminates.

       update(Cache, Key, Session) -> _

              Types:

                  Cache = cache_ref()
                  Key = key()
                  Session = session()

              Caches a new session or updates a already cached one. Will only be called from  the
              cache handling process.
