       ne_ssl_clicert_decrypt, ne_ssl_clicert_owner, ne_ssl_clicert_free - SSL client certificate

       #include <ne_ssl.h>

       ne_ssl_client_cert *ne_ssl_clicert_read (const char *filename);

       const char *ne_ssl_clicert_name (const ne_ssl_client_cert *ccert);

       int ne_ssl_clicert_encrypted (const ne_ssl_client_cert *ccert);

       int ne_ssl_clicert_decrypt (ne_ssl_client_cert *ccert, const char *password);

       const ne_ssl_certificate *ne_ssl_clicert_owner (const ne_ssl_client_cert *ccert);

       void ne_ssl_clicert_free (ne_ssl_client_cert *ccert);

       The ne_ssl_clicert_read function reads a client certificate from a PKCS#12-formatted file,
       and returns an ne_ssl_client_cert object. If the client certificate is encrypted, it  must
       be  decrypted  before  it is used. An ne_ssl_client_cert object holds a client certificate
       and the associated private key, not just a certificate; the term "client certificate" will
       used to refer to this pair.

       A  client  certificate  can  be	in  one  of  two  states:  encrypted  or  decrypted.  The
       ne_ssl_clicert_encrypted function will return non-zero if the client certificate is in the
       encrypted  state.  A client certificate object returned by ne_ssl_clicert_read may be ini-
       tially in either state, depending on whether the file was encrypted or not.

       ne_ssl_clicert_decrypt can be used to decrypt a client certificate using  the  appropriate
       password.  This	function  must only be called if the object is in the encrypted state; if
       decryption fails, the certificate state does not change, so decryption  can  be	attempted
       more than once using different passwords.

       A   client   certificate   can	be   given   a	 "friendly  name"  when  it  is  created;
       ne_ssl_clicert_name will return this name (or NULL if no  friendly  name  was  specified).
       ne_ssl_clicert_name  can be used when the client certificate is in either the encrypted or
       decrypted state, and will return the same string for the lifetime of the object.

       The function ne_ssl_clicert_owner returns the certificate part of the client  certificate;
       it must only be called if the client certificate is in the decrypted state.

       When  the  client certificate is no longer needed, the ne_ssl_clicert_free function should
       be used to destroy the object.

       ne_ssl_clicert_read returns a client certificate object, or NULL if the file could not  be
       read.  ne_ssl_clicert_encrypted	returns  zero if the object is in the decrypted state, or
       non-zero if it is in the encrypted state.  ne_ssl_clicert_name  returns	a  NUL-terminated
       friendly name string, or NULL. ne_ssl_clicert_owner returns a certificate object.

       The  following code reads a client certificate and decrypts it if necessary, then loads it
       into an HTTP session.

       ne_ssl_client_cert *ccert;

       ccert = ne_ssl_clicert_read("/path/to/client.p12");

       if (ccert == NULL) {
	  /* handle error... */
       } else if (ne_ssl_clicert_encrypted(ccert)) {
	  char *password = prompt_for_password();

	  if (ne_ssl_clicert_decrypt(ccert, password)) {
	     /* could not decrypt! handle error... */

       ne_ssl_set_clicert(sess, ccert);
