CURLOPT_CAINFO_BLOB(3) Library Functions Manual CURLOPT_CAINFO_BLOB(3)

CURLOPT_CAINFO_BLOB - Certificate Authority (CA) bundle in PEM format

#include <curl/curl.h>
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_CAINFO_BLOB,
                          struct curl_blob *stblob);

Pass a pointer to a curl_blob structure, which contains information (pointer and size) about a memory block with binary data of PEM encoded content holding one or more certificates to verify the HTTPS server with.

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 setting this.

If CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER(3) is zero and you avoid verifying the server's certificate, CURLOPT_CAINFO_BLOB(3) is not needed.

This option overrides CURLOPT_CAINFO(3).

NULL

All TLS based protocols: HTTPS, FTPS, IMAPS, POP3S, SMTPS etc.

This option works only with the following TLS backends: BearSSL, OpenSSL, Schannel, Secure Transport, mbedTLS, rustls and wolfSSL

#include <string.h>
int main(void)
{
  char *strpem; /* strpem must point to a PEM string */
  CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
  if(curl) {
    CURLcode res;
    struct curl_blob blob;
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com/");
    blob.data = strpem;
    blob.len = strlen(strpem);
    blob.flags = CURL_BLOB_COPY;
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_CAINFO_BLOB, &blob);
    res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
    curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
  }
}

Added in 7.77.0.

This option is supported by the BearSSL (since 7.79.0), mbedTLS (since 7.81.0), rustls (since 7.82.0), wolfSSL (since 8.2.0), OpenSSL, Secure Transport and Schannel backends.

Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not, or CURLE_OUT_OF_MEMORY if there was insufficient heap space.
