Hi again,

I have made some changes in tls_openssl.c to allow certificate and
private key blobs in PEM format as well. These changes solve my
problem. 

It might be of interest for others so I have attached a patch with the
changes. 
Could you please take a look at it and see if you find any potential
problems?
