Hello Du Hau,

you probably want to abandon your current approach. With TLSv1.3, which
will come to dominate and eliminate earlier TLS protocols, there is no
mechanism for renegotiation. The entire site (defined using SNI, server
name indication) will need to share a common handshake, the idea of only
locking down gets eliminated with this
protocol, and with many only TLS's which actively disable renegotiation due
to the underlying potential security holes over time.
