NAME

CURLOPT_TLSAUTH_PASSWORD - password to use for TLS authentication  

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_TLSAUTH_PASSWORD, char *pwd);  

DESCRIPTION

Pass a char * as parameter, which should point to the zero terminated password to use for the TLS authentication method specified with the CURLOPT_TLSAUTH_TYPE(3) option. Requires that the CURLOPT_TLSAUTH_USERNAME(3) option also be set.

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

This feature relies in TLS SRP which doesn't work with TLS 1.3.  

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_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
