NAME

       CURLOPT_ISSUERCERT - issuer SSL certificate filename

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_ISSUERCERT, char *file);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a  char  * to a zero terminated string naming a file holding a CA certificate in PEM
       format. If the option is  set,  an  additional  check  against  the  peer  certificate  is
       performed  to verify the issuer is indeed the one associated with the certificate provided
       by the option. This additional check is useful in  multi-level  PKI  where  one  needs  to
       enforce that the peer certificate is from a specific branch of the tree.

       This  option  makes sense only when used in combination with the CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER(3)
       option. Otherwise, the result of the check is not considered as failure.

       A specific error code (CURLE_SSL_ISSUER_ERROR)  is  defined  with  the  option,  which  is
       returned  if the setup of the SSL/TLS session has failed due to a mismatch with the issuer
       of peer certificate (CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER(3) has to be set too for the check  to  fail).
       (Added in 7.19.0)

       The application does not have to keep the string around after setting this option.

DEFAULT

       NULL

PROTOCOLS

       All TLS-based protocols

EXAMPLE

       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com/");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_ISSUERCERT, "/etc/certs/cacert.pem");
         ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY

       If built TLS enabled

RETURN VALUE

       Returns   CURLE_OK   if   the   option  is  supported,  CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION  if  not,  or
       CURLE_OUT_OF_MEMORY if there was insufficient heap space.
