HTTPS with LIBCURL issue

Hi all,

When any application tries to access an https based url and suppose the host
server presents a self signed certificate then ssl fails to authenticate the

certificate. Hence application is unable to access the website.
The same url when accessed using a mozilla or some other browser then it
throws up a dialog warning whether to accept, reject or examine the
certificate. If the user choses to accept the certificate then the browser
proceeds further and connects to the page.I want to develop this type of
functionality using libcurl.

I am using libcurl 7.18.2. Is any way to get this functionality ?

Thanks in advance,
