Re: Reading SSL certs from buffer

I haven't. But I actually it is one function call. I'm sure that OpenSSL has that ability. Also I can check other SSL libs for it to workout.

But I assume you are interested in such a feature, aren't you?
In worst case we can do that only for those ssl libs that supports certs from buffer. For those which do not we can return some error code when setopt get called.

I'm asking all these since I have limited resources and need carefully estimate that work and be surfe it is could be usefull not only for me.

Thank you in advance.

WBR, Dmitry Ponomarev

So several buffers can be joined together. List node stores pointer to buffer (not the data itself pointed by), length of data and format.
