CURLOPT_SSLKEYTYPE(3)	   curl_easy_setopt options	 CURLOPT_SSLKEYTYPE(3)

NAME
       CURLOPT_SSLKEYTYPE - set	type of	the private key	file

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curl/curl.h>

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

DESCRIPTION
       Pass a pointer to a null-terminated string  as  parameter.  The	string
       should  be the format of	your private key. Supported formats are	"PEM",
       "DER" and "ENG".

       The format "ENG"	enables	you to load the	private	key from a crypto  en-
       gine. In	this case CURLOPT_SSLKEY(3) is used as an identifier passed to
       the  engine.  You  have	to   set   the	 crypto	  engine   with	  CUR-
       LOPT_SSLENGINE(3).   "DER"  format key file currently does not work be-
       cause of	a bug in OpenSSL.

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

DEFAULT
       "PEM"

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_SSLKEYTYPE, "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 is supported, CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not, or
       CURLE_OUT_OF_MEMORY if there was	insufficient heap space.
