NAME

       CURLOPT_SSH_PRIVATE_KEYFILE - set private key file for SSH auth

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_SSH_PRIVATE_KEYFILE,
                                 char *filename);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a  char * pointing to a filename for your private key. If not used, libcurl defaults
       to $HOME/.ssh/id_dsa if the HOME environment variable is set, and  just  "id_dsa"  in  the
       current directory if HOME is not set.

       If the file is password-protected, set the password with CURLOPT_KEYPASSWD(3).

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

DEFAULT

       As explained above

PROTOCOLS

       SFTP and SCP

EXAMPLE

       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "sftp://example.com/file");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_SSH_PRIVATE_KEYFILE,
                          "/home/clarkkent/.ssh/id_rsa");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_KEYPASSWD, "password");
         ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }
