           These functions load the certificates and private keys into the SSL_CTX
           or SSL object, respectively.
           The SSL_CTX_* class of functions loads the certificates and keys into
           the SSL_CTX object ctx. The information is passed to SSL objects ssl
           created from ctx with SSL_new(3) by copying, so that changes applied to
           ctx do not propagate to already existing SSL objects.
           The SSL_* class of functions only loads certificates and keys into a
           specific SSL object. The specific information is kept, when
           SSL_clear(3) is called for this SSL object.
           should be preferred.
           SSL_CTX_use_certificate_chain_file() loads a certificate chain from
           file into ctx. The certificates must be in PEM format and must be
           sorted starting with the subject's certificate (actual client or server
           certificate), followed by intermediate CA certificates if applicable,
           and ending at the highest level (root) CA.  There is no corresponding
           function working on a single SSL object.
           SSL_CTX_use_PrivateKey() adds pkey as private key to ctx.
           SSL_CTX_use_RSAPrivateKey() adds the private key rsa of type RSA to
           ctx. SSL_use_PrivateKey() adds pkey as private key to ssl;
           SSL_use_RSAPrivateKey() adds rsa as private key of type RSA to ssl.  If
           a certificate has already been set and the private does not belong to
           the certificate an error is returned. To change a certificate, private
           key pair the new certificate needs to be set with SSL_use_certificate()
           or SSL_CTX_use_certificate() before setting the private key with
           SSL_CTX_use_PrivateKey() or SSL_use_PrivateKey().
           SSL_CTX_use_PrivateKey_ASN1() adds the private key of type pk stored at
           memory location d (length len) to ctx.
           SSL_CTX_use_RSAPrivateKey_ASN1() adds the private key of type RSA
           stored at memory location d (length len) to ctx.
           SSL_use_PrivateKey_ASN1() and SSL_use_RSAPrivateKey_ASN1() add the
           private key to ssl.
           SSL_CTX_use_PrivateKey_file() adds the first private key found in file
           to ctx. The formatting type of the certificate must be specified from
           the known types SSL_FILETYPE_PEM, SSL_FILETYPE_ASN1.
           SSL_CTX_use_RSAPrivateKey_file() adds the first private RSA key found
           in file to ctx. SSL_use_PrivateKey_file() adds the first private key
           found in file to ssl; SSL_use_RSAPrivateKey_file() adds the first
           private RSA key found to ssl.
           SSL_CTX_check_private_key() checks the consistency of a private key
           with the corresponding certificate loaded into ctx. If more than one
           key/certificate pair (RSA/DSA) is installed, the last item installed
           will be checked. If e.g. the last item was a RSA certificate or key,
           the RSA key/certificate pair will be checked. SSL_check_private_key()
           performs the same check for ssl. If no key/certificate was explicitly
           added for this ssl, the last item added into ctx will be checked.


           The internal certificate store of OpenSSL can hold two private
           key/certificate pairs at a time: one key/certificate of type RSA and
           one key/certificate of type DSA. The certificate used depends on the
           cipher select, see also SSL_CTX_set_cipher_list(3).
           When reading certificates and private keys from file, files of type
           SSL_FILETYPE_ASN1 (also known as DER, binary encoding) can only contain
           one certificate or private key, consequently
           SSL_CTX_use_certificate_chain_file() is only applicable to PEM
           CA storage.
           If additional certificates are needed to complete the chain during the
           TLS negotiation, CA certificates are additionally looked up in the
           locations of trusted CA certificates, see
           The private keys loaded from file can be encrypted. In order to
           successfully load encrypted keys, a function returning the passphrase
           must have been supplied, see SSL_CTX_set_default_passwd_cb(3).
           (Certificate files might be encrypted as well from the technical point
           of view, it however does not make sense as the data in the certificate
           is considered public anyway.)


           On success, the functions return 1.  Otherwise check out the error
           stack to find out the reason.

           Support for DER encoded private keys (SSL_FILETYPE_ASN1) in
           SSL_CTX_use_PrivateKey_file() and SSL_use_PrivateKey_file() was added
           in 0.9.8 .
