CURLOPT_HSTSWRITEFUNCTION explained

Name

CURLOPT_HSTSWRITEFUNCTION - write callback for HSTS hosts

Synopsis

#include <curl/curl.h>
 
struct curl_hstsentry {
  char *name;
  size_t namelen;
  unsigned int includeSubDomains:1;
  char expire[18]; /* YYYYMMDD HH:MM:SS [null-terminated] */
};
 
struct curl_index {
  size_t index; /* the provided entry's "index" or count */
  size_t total; /* total number of entries to save */
};
 
CURLSTScode hstswrite(CURL *easy, struct curl_hstsentry *sts,
                      struct curl_index *count, void *userp);
 
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_HSTSWRITEFUNCTION, hstswrite);

Description

Pass a pointer to your callback function, as the prototype shows above.

This callback function gets called by libcurl repeatedly to allow the application to store the in-memory HSTS cache when libcurl is about to discard it.

Set the userp argument with the CURLOPT_HSTSWRITEDATA option or it will be NULL.

When the callback is invoked, the sts pointer points to a populated struct: Read the host name to 'name' (it is namelen bytes long and null terminated. The includeSubDomains field is non-zero if the entry matches subdomains. The expire string is a date stamp null-terminated string using the syntax YYYYMMDD HH:MM:SS.

The callback should return CURLSTS_OK if it succeeded and is prepared to be called again (for another host) or CURLSTS_DONE if there's nothing more to do. It can also return CURLSTS_FAIL to signal error.

This option does not enable HSTS, you need to use CURLOPT_HSTS_CTRL to do that.

Default

NULL - no callback.

Protocols

This feature is only used for HTTP(S) transfer.

Example

{
  /* set HSTS read callback */
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_HSTSWRITEFUNCTION, hstswrite);
 
  /* pass in suitable argument to the callback */
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_HSTSWRITEDATA, &hstspreload[0]);
 
  result = curl_easy_perform(curl);
}

Availability

Added in 7.74.0

Return value

This will return CURLE_OK.
