CURLOPT_SSH_KNOWNHOSTS man page

CURLOPT_SSH_KNOWNHOSTS — file name holding the SSH known hosts

Synopsis

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_SSH_KNOWNHOSTS, char *fname);

Description

Pass a pointer to a zero terminated string holding the file name of the known_host file to use. The known_hosts file should use the OpenSSH file format as supported by libssh2. If this file is specified, libcurl will only accept connections with hosts that are known and present in that file, with a matching public key. Use CURLOPT_SSH_KEYFUNCTION(3) to alter the default behavior on host and key (mis)matching.
