Sets the format of the private key.
Pass a string as parameter. The string should be the format of your private key. Supported formats are "PEM", "DER" and "ENG".

The format "ENG" enables you to load the private key from a crypto engine. In this case CURL.SetOptionSSLKey is used as an identifier passed to the engine. You have to set the crypto engine with CURL.SetOptionSSLEngine. "DER" format key file currently does not work because of a bug in OpenSSL.
