Re: [paho-dev] Init SSLSocket context based on strings

I see you've opened an issue #811 - that's the best place for the discussion.  Thanks.

Dear Paho Community,

the initialisation of Paho SSL Context seems to be possible only passing the paths to CAs, certificate and private key files.
For security reasons, I would like instead to create the context passing directly the files contents to the SSLSocket_createContext function, so I could store the credentials into an external vault.

I am wondering why this functionality was never added, if there are some security issues and if the development of the feature would be accepted and merged with the master branch in the future.

Thanks, best regards
