CURLOPT_SSLCERT(3)					     curl_easy_setopt options						CURLOPT_SSLCERT(3)

NAME
CURLOPT_SSLCERT - set SSL client certificate SYNOPSIS
#include <curl/curl.h> CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_SSLCERT, char *cert); DESCRIPTION
Pass a pointer to a zero terminated string as parameter. The string should be the file name of your client certificate. The default format is "P12" on Secure Transport and "PEM" on other engines, and can be changed with CURLOPT_SSLCERTTYPE(3). With NSS or Secure Transport, this can also be the nickname of the certificate you wish to authenticate with as it is named in the security database. If you want to use a file from the current directory, please precede it with "./" prefix, in order to avoid confusion with a nickname. When using a client certificate, you most likely also need to provide a private key with CURLOPT_SSLKEY(3). The application does not have to keep the string around after setting this option. DEFAULT
NULL PROTOCOLS
All TLS based protocols: HTTPS, FTPS, IMAPS, POP3S, SMTPS etc. EXAMPLE
TODO AVAILABILITY
If built TLS enabled. RETURN VALUE
Returns CURLE_OK if TLS enabled, CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not, or CURLE_OUT_OF_MEMORY if there was insufficient heap space. SEE ALSO
CURLOPT_SSLCERTTYPE(3), CURLOPT_SSLKEY(3), libcurl 7.54.0 December 21, 2016 CURLOPT_SSLCERT(3)

CURLOPT_SSLKEY(3)					     curl_easy_setopt options						 CURLOPT_SSLKEY(3)

NAME
CURLOPT_SSLKEY - specify private keyfile for TLS and SSL client cert SYNOPSIS
#include <curl/curl.h> CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_SSLKEY, char *keyfile); DESCRIPTION
Pass a pointer to a zero terminated string as parameter. The string should be the file name of your private key. The default format is "PEM" and can be changed with CURLOPT_SSLKEYTYPE(3). (iOS and Mac OS X only) This option is ignored if curl was built against Secure Transport. Secure Transport expects the private key to be already present in the keychain or PKCS#12 file containing the certificate. The application does not have to keep the string around after setting this option. DEFAULT
