Section: curl_easy_setopt options (3)
Updated: November 04, 2020
CURLOPT_PROXY_SSLCERT_BLOB - SSL proxy client certificate from memory blob
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_PROXY_SSLCERT_BLOB, struct curl_blob *blob);
Pass a pointer to a curl_blob structure, which contains information (pointer
and size) about a memory block with binary data of the certificate used to
connect to the HTTPS proxy. The format must be "P12" on Secure Transport or
Schannel. The format must be "P12" or "PEM" on OpenSSL. The string "P12" or
"PEM" must be specified with CURLOPT_PROXY_SSLCERTTYPE(3)
If the blob is initialized with the flags member of struct curl_blob set to
CURL_BLOB_COPY, the application does not have to keep the buffer around after
This option is an alternative to CURLOPT_PROXY_SSLCERT(3) which instead
expects a file name as input.
All TLS based protocols: HTTPS, FTPS, IMAPS, POP3S, SMTPS etc.
CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
struct curl_blob blob;
blob.data = certificateData;
blob.len = filesize;
blob.flags = CURL_BLOB_COPY;
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com/");
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PROXY, "https://proxy");
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PROXY_SSLKEY, "key.pem");
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PROXY_KEYPASSWD, "s3cret");
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PROXY_SSLCERT_BLOB, &blob);
ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
Added in libcurl 7.71.0. This option is supported by the OpenSSL, Secure
Transport and Schannel backends.
Returns CURLE_OK if TLS enabled, CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not, or
CURLE_OUT_OF_MEMORY if there was insufficient heap space.
