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

       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com/");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_SSLCERT, "client.pem");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_SSLKEY, "key.pem");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_KEYPASSWD, "s3cret");
         ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }

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.
