openSSL and certificate_store

From: Serge van den Broek <SVandenbroek_at_isabel.be>
Date: Mon, 19 Jul 2004 09:17:20 +0200

Hi

I have implemented OpenSSL with curl. I succeed in authenticating the server if I have the server's certificate as a file on the client workstation (using CURLOPT_CAINFO). But is it possible to use a certificate contained in the certificate store of Windows ?

Thanks for your help

Yes, perhaps we should call it something else? curl_easy_optreset()?

It does not touch:
curl_hash (hostcache)
Share
Cookies
UrlState
PureInfo
SSL Engine Info

It only resets:
UserDefined
Progress

Having not really used the share interface, I can't be too helpful
with what this function ought to do. Reading, the current docs, I
would say that we should maintain the share interface, because we
aren't reseting Cookies ore DNS cache...which is what they share
(beyond userdata).

Anyone else is welcome to get in on this.

Cheers.
Casey

P.S. Thanks for the response on inclusion time. 7.12.1 sounds great.

If data is available for reading, I would call this legitimate.  Large files
that take a long time to download could outlast any CURLOPT_TIMEOUT.  If,
however, this timeout was used instead to timeout on inactive connections,
this problem would be avoided.

I will look into it, thanks.

Data is not available all the time, hardly on any connections. There are 
always periods when no data is available. The lengths of those periods can of 
course vary between milliseconds to hours, days or even weeks. The periods of 
no-data-available doesn't make the connection ilegitimate, only slow.

Of course, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT is a very rough tool.

So what is an "inactive connection" ? libcurl can't tell if the server is 
slow, the network is slow or if the server actually decided to stop sending 
data (without disconnecting).
But then, libcurl offers a method to kill connections with very little 
through-put, if you think that is a good idea. Or you can do your own 
heuristics in one of the callbcks libcurl calls.

No. But a thread can signal the other thread and then you can make your 
callback(s) return to abort the transfer. It will at least make the transfer 
stop as soon as possible.

Return the proper code from your callback and it'll stop.

Yes that would work, and then connections marked as paused wouldn't be checked 
for receiving or sending data.

Maximum number of open connections in an easy handle's connection "pool". They 
are used to allow connection re-use when subsequent requests are made.
