Description

abstract class Gio.TlsConnection : Gio.IOStream {
  parent_instance: GIOStream,
  priv: GTlsConnectionPrivate*
}

GTlsConnection is the base TLS connection class type, which wraps a GIOStream and provides TLS encryption on top of it. Its subclasses, GTlsClientConnection and GTlsServerConnection, implement client-side and server-side TLS, respectively.

For DTLS (Datagram TLS) support, see GDtlsConnection.

Available since: 2.28

Ancestors

Instance methods

g_tls_connection_emit_accept_certificate

Used by GTlsConnection implementations to emit the GTlsConnection::accept-certificate signal.

since: 2.28

g_tls_connection_get_certificate

Gets conns certificate, as set by g_tls_connection_set_certificate().

since: 2.28

g_tls_connection_get_channel_binding_data

Query the TLS backend for TLS channel binding data of type for conn.

since: 2.66

g_tls_connection_get_ciphersuite_name

Returns the name of the current TLS ciphersuite, or NULL if the connection has not handshaked or has been closed. Beware that the TLS backend may use any of multiple different naming conventions, because OpenSSL and GnuTLS have their own ciphersuite naming conventions that are different from each other and different from the standard, IANA- registered ciphersuite names. The ciphersuite name is intended to be displayed to the user for informative purposes only, and parsing it is not recommended.

since: 2.70

g_tls_connection_get_database

Gets the certificate database that conn uses to verify peer certificates. See g_tls_connection_set_database().

since: 2.30

g_tls_connection_get_interaction

Get the object that will be used to interact with the user. It will be used for things like prompting the user for passwords. If NULL is returned, then no user interaction will occur for this connection.

since: 2.30

g_tls_connection_get_negotiated_protocol

Gets the name of the application-layer protocol negotiated during the handshake.

since: 2.60

g_tls_connection_get_peer_certificate

Gets conns peer’s certificate after the handshake has completed or failed. (It is not set during the emission of GTlsConnection::accept-certificate.)

since: 2.28

g_tls_connection_get_peer_certificate_errors

Gets the errors associated with validating conns peer’s certificate, after the handshake has completed or failed. (It is not set during the emission of GTlsConnection::accept-certificate.)

since: 2.28

g_tls_connection_get_protocol_version

Returns the current TLS protocol version, which may be G_TLS_PROTOCOL_VERSION_UNKNOWN if the connection has not handshaked, or has been closed, or if the TLS backend has implemented a protocol version that is not a recognized GTlsProtocolVersion.

since: 2.70

g_tls_connection_get_rehandshake_mode

Gets conn rehandshaking mode. See g_tls_connection_set_rehandshake_mode() for details.

deprecated: 2.60. since: 2.28

g_tls_connection_get_require_close_notify

Tests whether or not conn expects a proper TLS close notification when the connection is closed. See g_tls_connection_set_require_close_notify() for details.

since: 2.28

g_tls_connection_get_use_system_certdb

Gets whether conn uses the system certificate database to verify peer certificates. See g_tls_connection_set_use_system_certdb().

deprecated: 2.30 

g_tls_connection_handshake

Attempts a TLS handshake on conn.

since: 2.28

g_tls_connection_handshake_async

Asynchronously performs a TLS handshake on conn. See g_tls_connection_handshake() for more information.

since: 2.28

g_tls_connection_handshake_finish

Finish an asynchronous TLS handshake operation. See g_tls_connection_handshake() for more information.

since: 2.28

g_tls_connection_set_advertised_protocols

Sets the list of application-layer protocols to advertise that the caller is willing to speak on this connection. The Application-Layer Protocol Negotiation (ALPN) extension will be used to negotiate a compatible protocol with the peer; use g_tls_connection_get_negotiated_protocol() to find the negotiated protocol after the handshake. Specifying NULL for the the value of protocols will disable ALPN negotiation.

since: 2.60

g_tls_connection_set_certificate

This sets the certificate that conn will present to its peer during the TLS handshake. For a GTlsServerConnection, it is mandatory to set this, and that will normally be done at construct time.

since: 2.28

g_tls_connection_set_database

Sets the certificate database that is used to verify peer certificates. This is set to the default database by default. See g_tls_backend_get_default_database(). If set to NULL, then peer certificate validation will always set the G_TLS_CERTIFICATE_UNKNOWN_CA error (meaning GTlsConnection::accept-certificate will always be emitted on client-side connections, unless that bit is not set in GTlsClientConnection:validation-flags).

since: 2.30

g_tls_connection_set_interaction

Set the object that will be used to interact with the user. It will be used for things like prompting the user for passwords.

since: 2.30

g_tls_connection_set_rehandshake_mode

Since GLib 2.64, changing the rehandshake mode is no longer supported and will have no effect. With TLS 1.3, rehandshaking has been removed from the TLS protocol, replaced by separate post-handshake authentication and rekey operations.

deprecated: 2.60. since: 2.28

g_tls_connection_set_require_close_notify

Sets whether or not conn expects a proper TLS close notification before the connection is closed. If this is TRUE (the default), then conn will expect to receive a TLS close notification from its peer before the connection is closed, and will return a G_TLS_ERROR_EOF error if the connection is closed without proper notification (since this may indicate a network error, or man-in-the-middle attack).

since: 2.28

g_tls_connection_set_use_system_certdb

Sets whether conn uses the system certificate database to verify peer certificates. This is TRUE by default. If set to FALSE, then peer certificate validation will always set the G_TLS_CERTIFICATE_UNKNOWN_CA error (meaning GTlsConnection::accept-certificate will always be emitted on client-side connections, unless that bit is not set in GTlsClientConnection:validation-flags).

deprecated: 2.30 

Methods inherited from GIOStream (10)
g_io_stream_clear_pending

Clears the pending flag on stream.

since: 2.22

g_io_stream_close

Closes the stream, releasing resources related to it. This will also close the individual input and output streams, if they are not already closed.

since: 2.22

g_io_stream_close_async

Requests an asynchronous close of the stream, releasing resources related to it. When the operation is finished callback will be called. You can then call g_io_stream_close_finish() to get the result of the operation.

since: 2.22

g_io_stream_close_finish

Closes a stream.

since: 2.22

g_io_stream_get_input_stream

Properties

Gio.TlsConnection:advertised-protocols

The list of application-layer protocols that the connection advertises that it is willing to speak. See g_tls_connection_set_advertised_protocols().

since: 2.60

Gio.TlsConnection:base-io-stream

The GIOStream that the connection wraps. The connection holds a reference to this stream, and may run operations on the stream from other threads throughout its lifetime. Consequently, after the GIOStream has been constructed, application code may only run its own operations on this stream when no GIOStream operations are running.

since: 2.28

Gio.TlsConnection:certificate

The connection’s certificate; see g_tls_connection_set_certificate().

since: 2.28

Gio.TlsConnection:ciphersuite-name

The name of the TLS ciphersuite in use. See g_tls_connection_get_ciphersuite_name().

since: 2.70

Gio.TlsConnection:database

The certificate database to use when verifying this TLS connection. If no certificate database is set, then the default database will be used. See g_tls_backend_get_default_database().

since: 2.30

Gio.TlsConnection:interaction

Gio.TlsConnection:peer-certificate-errors

The errors noticed while verifying GTlsConnection:peer-certificate. Normally this should be 0, but it may not be if GTlsClientConnection:validation-flags is not G_TLS_CERTIFICATE_VALIDATE_ALL, or if GTlsConnection::accept-certificate overrode the default behavior.

since: 2.28

Gio.TlsConnection:protocol-version

The TLS protocol version in use. See g_tls_connection_get_protocol_version().

since: 2.70

Gio.TlsConnection:rehandshake-mode

The rehandshaking mode. See g_tls_connection_set_rehandshake_mode().
