NAME

       CURLOPT_TLSAUTH_TYPE - set TLS authentication methods

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_TLSAUTH_TYPE, char *type);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a  pointer to a zero terminated string as parameter. The string should be the method
       of the TLS authentication. Supported method is "SRP".

       SRP    TLS-SRP authentication. Secure Remote Password authentication for TLS is defined in
              RFC5054  and  provides mutual authentication if both sides have a shared secret. To
              use   TLS-SRP,   you   must   also   set   the   CURLOPT_TLSAUTH_USERNAME(3)    and
              CURLOPT_TLSAUTH_PASSWORD(3) options.

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

DEFAULT

       blank

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_TLSAUTH_TYPE, "SRP");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_TLSAUTH_USERNAME, "user");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_TLSAUTH_PASSWORD, "secret");
         ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY

       You  need  to  build libcurl with GnuTLS or OpenSSL with TLS-SRP support for this to work.
       Added in 7.21.4

RETURN VALUE

       Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
