10.2 TLS Handshake Protocol
The GnuTLS handshake protocol is implemented as a state machine that waits for input or returns immediately when the non-blocking transport layer functions are used. The main idea is shown in Figure 10.2.
Figure 10.2: GnuTLS handshake state machine.
Also the way the input is processed varies per ciphersuite. Several
implementations of the internal handlers are available and
gnutls_handshake only multiplexes the input to the appropriate
handler. For example a PSK ciphersuite has a different
implementation of the
process_client_key_exchange than a
certificate ciphersuite. We illustrate the idea in Figure 10.3.
