CURLOPT_SSH_PUBLIC_KEYFILE man page

CURLOPT_SSH_PUBLIC_KEYFILE — set public key file for SSH auth

Synopsis

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_SSH_PUBLIC_KEYFILE,
                          char *filename);

Description

Pass a char * pointing to a filename for your public key. If not used, libcurl defaults to $HOME/.ssh/id_dsa.pub if the HOME environment variable is set, and just "id_dsa.pub" in the current directory if HOME is not set.

If NULL (or an empty string) is passed, libcurl will pass no public key to libssh2, which then tries to compute it from the private key. This is known to work with libssh2 1.4.0+ linked against OpenSSL.

Default

NULL

Protocols

SFTP and SCP
