Yes, that makes sense. If it's just a a null then you'd get that particular error message.

so here is my best guess as to whats going on with regards to this error with the 'empty'
protocol looks like the 'rogue' client is possibly sending a \0 or some other 'garbage'
non-printable character(s) as a protocol.  this is the reason why len > 0, but the requested
protocol appears to be 'empty'

I looked through our produciton logs on all our servers (a lot of servers) and I am seeing
this too once in awhile.  It shouldn’t print the log unless len > 0, but from the logs
it looks like the length is 0.
It might be helpful to also print len to see what the value is.  Can you please file an issue
on this?

Has anyone identified any legacy/broken clients out in the wild that may be responsible for
causing these errors ?I cant seem to generate the same error using openssl:
openssl s_client  -connect ip:port  -nextprotoneg ''

If I pass an empty list, ATS just returns a list of supported protocols and closes the TLS
connection. Which is per spec(if i read correctly). 
The request must be flawed some other way for ATS to generate this error. 
I can't run debug or packet capture on these machines since they are in productionThe error
seems somewhat innocent.. I am guessing what I may find is that theseerrors are caused by
some broken/incomplete client/TLS implementation.  I am leaning towards
this being something amiss with early implementations of boringssl. 
However, while I am testing some older clients I am putting this out to the community.Maybe
someone here has already identified some broken clients or identified a general areacausing
these errors to generate.
