Forget APIs for a moment, you are lost in the weeds.
What is the maximum relevant information two parties in a TLS connection
(potentially) know about each other? Is the information you need
available, in principle after a TLS handshake, and what optional features
of TLS do you need to enable to ensure that the right data is known to
If (under appropriate conditions) all the required data is available,
which objects do you need to access in order to obtain to the relevant
Once you have a general plan of attack, find the right API entry points.
