CURLOPT_PROXY_KEYPASSWD − set passphrase to proxy private key
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_PROXY_KEYPASSWD, char *pwd);
This option is for connecting to an HTTPS proxy, not an HTTPS server.
Pass a pointer to a null-terminated string as parameter. It will be used as the password required to use the CURLOPT_PROXY_SSLKEY(3) private key. You never needed a pass phrase to load a certificate but you need one to load your private key.
The application does not have to keep the string around after setting this option.
Used with HTTPS proxy
CURL *curl =
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com/foo.bin");
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PROXY, "https://proxy:443");
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PROXY_KEYPASSWD, "superman");
ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
Added in 7.52.0
