I'm trying to use CURL to test simple HTTPS connections to servers that require a client certificate. I've specified the certificate type in my
.curlrc file with
cert = /path/to/Cert.p12 and told it that yes, it's a PKCS12 cert with
cert-type = P12. It kept failing with "could not parse PKCS12 file, check password...... mac verify failure", so out of curiosity I tried hard-coding the password in the config file, and sure enough it pulled the page right up.
I read the man page about a dozen times and I can't see anything from the command line to say "please prompt me for a password", and it says right there "If the optional password isn't specified, it will be queried for on the terminal". Am I missing something obvious?
