void SSL_CTX_free(SSL_CTX *ctx);
decrements the reference count of ctx
, and removes the
object pointed to by ctx
and frees up the allocated memory if the
the reference count has reached 0.
It also calls the free()ing procedures for indirectly affected items, if
applicable: the session cache, the list of ciphers, the list of Client CAs,
the certificates and keys.
If a session-remove callback is set (SSL_CTX_sess_set_remove_cb()
callback will be called for each session being freed from ctx
session cache. This implies, that all corresponding sessions from an
external session cache are removed as well. If this is not desired, the user
should explicitly unset the callback by calling
