SSL handshake using SSPI

Hi all ,

I have had a lot of help from this mailing list and I would like to thank
all users and experts for replying and giving efficient remarks and pointers
on whatever concerns i posted .
Here I face one more situation .

a)I would like to know if it is possible to use SSPI and MS crypto library
to establish SSL (HTTPS) connections using libcurl? I only intend to use the
library for connection establishment (SSL Hanshake ) and leave the rest on
the application to handle the I/O and stuff .

b)I have already used HTTP CONNECT ONLY option to establish a HTTP PROXY
tunnel and handle socket fd on my own . Likewise I intend to add
SSPI-enabled SSL support for HTTPS connection on the same lines . I would
appreciate if anyone gives me helpful pointers on that .

Is it possible to do that using libcurl because I didnt see support for MS
crypto libraries in SSLENGINE options .

Expecting a quick reply

Thanks in anticipation ,
