Please consider support for TLS 1.3 <https://www.ietf.org/blog/tls13/> (all
new web servers should use it).

GnuTLS <https://www.gnutls.org/> is a very good library (I've used it about
two years at company). Its API is clean, small, massively documented
<https://www.gnutls.org/documentation.html>, and its ABI is very stable
(about 99.83~100% between 2015-2018).

Cheers

p.s.: I made a X.509 based authentication using OpenSSL. Its API is a
little bit ugly and confuse, so I spent about three weeks working on that.
After, I did the same work using GnuTLS, so I spent just five days because
its API is better and contais this good manual
<https://www.gnutls.org/manual/gnutls.pdf>.
