winhttp Plugin

Purpose

The winhttp plugin is a CRL/OCSP fetcher plugin for the Windows platform. It supports fetching of CRL or OCSP information over HTTP/HTTPS URLs using the native WinHTTP API.

The plugin is disabled by default and can be enabled for Windows builds by adding

--enable-winhttp
to the ./configure options.

The plugin has been introduced in strongSwan 5.2.0.

As MinGW usually does not come with a libwinhttp.dll, use a copy of winhttp.dll from Windows\System32 for a cross-platform build.
