[erlang-questions] Making SSL fail silently

Hello!

My application is listening SSL port using ssl:listen, ssl:transport_accept
and ssl:ssl_accept (indeed it uses some old patched mochiweb).
Erlang/OTP release is R16B02.
I use SASL for error logging.

Due to existence of network scanners, network errors and buggy clients some
of connections fail to negotiate. This leads to two kind of log entries:
  1. "insufficient security", etc.
  2. Crash reports due to a function_clause error in tls_v1:enum_to_oid(0)
(this may be not the only one, but definitely the most popular)

First one seems to be fixed by {log_alert, false} ssl option.
Second one keeps flooding logs with huge state printouts.

So, my question is: How to make all SSL-related troubles not to generate
error reports? Simple {error, handshake_failed} returned by one of
accepting functions would be enough.

Maybe this is useful:
