SYNOPSIS
        #include <openssl/ssl.h>

       options, verification settings, timeout settings.

RETURN VALUES
       The following return values can occur:

       NULL
           The creation of a new SSL structure failed. Check the error stack
           to find out the reason.

           The return value points to an allocated SSL structure.
