CURLOPT_TLS13_CIPHERS(3) Library Functions Manual CURLOPT_TLS13_CIPHERS(3)

CURLOPT_TLS13_CIPHERS - ciphers suites to use for TLS 1.3

#include <curl/curl.h>
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_TLS13_CIPHERS, char *list);

Pass a char pointer, pointing to a null-terminated string holding the list of cipher suites to use for the TLS 1.3 connection. The list must be syntactically correct, it consists of one or more cipher suite strings separated by colons.

This option is currently used only when curl is built to use OpenSSL 1.1.1 or later, or Schannel. If you are using a different SSL backend you can try setting TLS 1.3 cipher suites by using the CURLOPT_SSL_CIPHER_LIST(3) option.

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

NULL, use internal default

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

This option works only with the following TLS backends: OpenSSL and Schannel

int main(void)
  CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
  if(curl) {
    CURLcode res;
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "");
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_TLS13_CIPHERS,
    res = curl_easy_perform(curl);

Added in 7.61.0 for OpenSSL. Available when built with OpenSSL >= 1.1.1.

Added in 7.85.0 for Schannel.

Returns CURLE_OK if supported, CURLE_NOT_BUILT_IN otherwise.
