CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_SSL_CTX_DATA, void *pointer);  

DESCRIPTION

Data pointer to pass to the ssl context callback set by the option CURLOPT_SSL_CTX_FUNCTION(3), this is the pointer you'll get as third parameter.

PROTOCOLS

All TLS based protocols: HTTPS, FTPS, IMAPS, POP3S, SMTPS etc.  

EXAMPLE

/* OpenSSL specific */

#include <openssl/ssl.h>
#include <curl/curl.h>
#include <stdio.h>

static CURLcode sslctx_function(CURL *curl, void *sslctx, void *parm)
{
  X509_STORE *store;
  X509 *cert=NULL;
  BIO *bio;
  char *mypem = (char *)parm;
  /* get a BIO */
  bio=BIO_new_mem_buf(mypem, -1);
  /* use it to read the PEM formatted certificate from memory into an
   * X509 structure that SSL can use
   */
  PEM_read_bio_X509(bio, &cert, 0, NULL);
  if(cert == NULL)
    printf("PEM_read_bio_X509 failed...\n");

  /* get a pointer to the X509 certificate store (which may be empty) */
  store=SSL_CTX_get_cert_store((SSL_CTX *)sslctx);

  /* add our certificate to this store */
  if(X509_STORE_add_cert(store, cert)==0)
    printf("error adding certificate\n");

  /* decrease reference counts */
  X509_free(cert);
  BIO_free(bio);

  /* all set to go */
  return CURLE_OK;
}

  /* Retrieve page using cacerts' certificate -> will succeed
   * load the certificate by installing a function doing the necessary
   * "modifications" to the SSL CONTEXT just before link init
   */
