Avoid keychain on OSX for SSL connection

  • Hi all,
    I have client/server application using SSL selfsigned cert to communicate. I'm on OSX with Qt 5.6 .
    It works fine but every time the server receive a connection it store the key/certificate on the OSX Keychain.
    Is it possible to avoid it?

    AFAIK, you need to build Qt against your own version of OpenSSL to avoid that. The old and outdated version that macOS provides has integration with the Key Chain that standard OpenSSL doesn't provide.
