Http Client Plugin


The http_client_plugin is an internal utility plugin, providing the producer_plugin the ability to use securely an external keosd instance as its block signer. It can only be used when the producer_plugin is configured to produce blocks.


# config.ini
plugin = eosio::http_client_plugin
https-client-root-cert = "path/to/my/certificate.pem"
https-client-validate-peers = 1
# command-line
nodeos ... --plugin eosio::http_client_plugin  \
           --https-client-root-cert "path/to/my/certificate.pem"  \
           --https-client-validate-peers 1


These can be specified from both the nodeos command-line or the config.ini file:
