TLS Socket Closed in Child Process
User & Date: anonymous 2018-03-21 16:23:14

  1. Change foundin to "1.7.16"
  2. Change icomment to:

    If a parent process opens a TLS socket prior to forking, and its child process closes it, this has the unfortunate side-effect of terminating the parent's connection. With a non-TLS socket this does not happen, i.e., closing the parent's socket in the child has no effect on the parent.

    If a fix for this is not implemented, could you please detail what code changes would be necessary to do so? That way I can implement it myself without requiring it to be a feature for all users of this library.

  3. Change login to "anonymous"
  4. Change mimetype to "text/html"
  5. Change private_contact to "402047c59996d0e7bae134707a6f222ec0914675"
  6. Change severity to "Important"
  7. Change status to "Open"
  8. Change title to "TLS Socket Closed in Child Process"
  9. Change type to "Feature Request"
