You can use openssl library for encryption related stuff. That will have
all the things. I don't think libcurl provides any encryption related
things, you can build it with openssl.

Hi All,
I found one previous mail talking about encryption and ssl was suggested
since libcurl do not have any builtin encryption mechanism. Is this
still the case?
I'm looking to use some king of private key type of method to
encrypt/decrypt messages between two networked device. Does anyone have
a suggestion on libcurl implementation. Although I'm not familiar with
ssl, unless things have changed package size if my first negative.
Does libcurl provides any type of key exchange mechanism usable?
Any other thoughts?

Much thanks.
