That's there AFAICS, using the functions:
SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations(SSL_context, fnbuf, NULL)
SSL_CTX_set_verify(SSL_context, SSL_VERIFY_PEER, verify_cb)
That has nothing to do with DH params though, which are purely used to
generate a secret key during negotiation. The server sends you the DH
params as part of the negotiation, the client doesn't need any itself.
Have a nice day,
