Block socket with SSL_MODE_AUTO_RETRY

Anonymous's picture

If I use block socket with SSL_MODE_AUTO_RETRY
The flag SSL_MODE_AUTO_RETRY will cause read/write operations to only return after the handshake and successful completion.

Do I have to handle the retrying in SSL_Read and SSL_Write? Isn't it easier to do this way? I know it hurts throughput a little, but is it a big deal?
