CURLOPT_PROXY_SSL_VERIFYHOScurl_easy_setopt optCURLOPT_PROXY_SSL_VERIFYHOST(3)

NAME
       CURLOPT_PROXY_SSL_VERIFYHOST  -	verify	the  proxy  certificate's name
       against host

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode	curl_easy_setopt(CURL  *handle,	 CURLOPT_PROXY_SSL_VERIFYHOST,
       long verify);

DESCRIPTION
       Pass  a	long  set  to 2L as asking curl	to verify in the HTTPS proxy's
       certificate name	fields against the proxy name.

       This option determines whether libcurl verifies	that  the  proxy  cert
       contains	the correct name for the name it is known as.

       When  CURLOPT_PROXY_SSL_VERIFYHOST(3)  is 2, the	proxy certificate must
       indicate	that the server	is the proxy to	which you meant	to connect to,
       or the connection fails.

       Curl considers the proxy	the intended one when the Common Name field or
       a Subject Alternate Name	field in the certificate matches the host name
       in the proxy string which you told curl to use.

       When  the verify	value is 1L, curl_easy_setopt will return an error and
       the option value	will not be changed due	to old legacy reasons.

       When the	verify value is	0L, the	connection succeeds regardless of  the
       names used in the certificate. Use that ability with caution!

       See  also  CURLOPT_PROXY_SSL_VERIFYPEER(3) to verify the	digital	signa-
       ture of the proxy certificate.  If libcurl is  built  against  NSS  and
       CURLOPT_PROXY_SSL_VERIFYPEER(3)	 is   zero,  CURLOPT_PROXY_SSL_VERIFY-
       HOST(3) is also set to zero and cannot be overridden.

DEFAULT
       2

PROTOCOLS
       All protocols when used over a HTTPS proxy.

EXAMPLE
       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl)	{
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com");

	 /* Set	the default value: strict name check please */
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_PROXY_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 2L);

	 curl_easy_perform(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY
       Added in	7.52.0.

       If built	TLS enabled.

RETURN VALUE
       Returns CURLE_OK	if TLS is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.

       If 1 is set as argument,	CURLE_BAD_FUNCTION_ARGUMENT is returned.
