For an example ticket callback implementation, see:

On line 315:

either the matching keyset (current active for creating a new ticket,
either active or previous when decrypting an existing ticket) is
selected, and the requested HMAC_CTX and EVP_CIPHER_CTX structures
are initialized appropriately.  Keyset, because the HMAC and AES
keys are separate.  The ticket encryption algorithm chosen by Postfix
defaults to aes-256-cbc.  OpenSSL does not support AEAD for ticket
