When using stream_socket_server with non blocking stream, there seems to have no way to write buffer to client. When the stream is in blocking mode, things start working again.

Test script:
$protocol = "ssl";
$ip = "";
$port = 8000;
$context = stream_context_create();
$certificate = __DIR__."/certificate_concat.pem";
stream_context_set_option($context, 'ssl', 'local_cert', $certificate);
stream_context_set_option($context, 'ssl', 'verify_peer', false);
$server = stream_socket_server("$protocol://$ip:$port", $errno, $errstr, STREAM_SERVER_BIND|STREAM_SERVER_LISTEN, $context);
stream_set_blocking($server, 0); //when set to non blocking, ssl will not work, if set to blocking, things start working again
  $client = stream_socket_accept($server);
  print "accepted " . stream_socket_get_name( $client, true) . "\n";
  if( $client )
    fwrite($client, "hello");
  } else {
    print "error.\n";

No one has ever given a feedback to this bug. It still affects PHP 5.5.9, any chance to get this fixed in 5.6?

Note that *writing* to the encrypted stream seems working, it's *reading* that won't work and it is reported on #65137.

This is unlikely an issue in PHP as this has been working fine for years. Maybe there was an issue that got fixed but think it's more likely application usage issue - for example I don't see any use of stream_select in the example which is often needed for non blocking read. Also note that stream_socket_accept will return blocking socket on Linux so that might have been confusing as well. Anyway non blocking read with TLS is definitely working if used correctly. If you still experience, please open a new issue in GitHub with more details what exactly doesn't work for you.
