ssl::stream::async_handshake (1 of 2 overloads)

Start an asynchronous SSL handshake.

    typename HandshakeToken = DEFAULT>
DEDUCED async_handshake(
    handshake_type type,
    HandshakeToken && token = DEFAULT);

This function is used to asynchronously perform an SSL handshake on the stream. It is an initiating function for an asynchronous operation, and always returns immediately.



The type of handshaking to be performed, i.e. as a client or as a server.


The completion token that will be used to produce a completion handler, which will be called when the handshake completes. Potential completion tokens include use_future, use_awaitable, yield_context, or a function object with the correct completion signature. The function signature of the completion handler must be:

void handler(
  const boost::system::error_code& error // Result of operation.

Regardless of whether the asynchronous operation completes immediately or not, the completion handler will not be invoked from within this function. On immediate completion, invocation of the handler will be performed in a manner equivalent to using post.

Completion Signature
Per-Operation Cancellation

This asynchronous operation supports cancellation for the following cancellation_type values:

if they are also supported by the Stream type's async_read_some and async_write_some operations.
