How can I authenticate with VeriSign with a stand alone C program if there is no web browser available

I am trying to authenticate with VeriSign on a handheld device, which lack the web browser in it. How can I authenticate with the server using a stand alone C program?

I don't know how much capabilities this handheld has. If it is capable of running some sort of Windows you could try you luck with
libcurl : http://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/
or some self written stuff using e.g
openssl: http://www.openssl.org

or using the crypto apis from Windows.

Thanks Friedrich!

I actually found that same tools right after posting the that question! cURL can be used to fully mimic the behavior of browser.

With the Firefox plugin "LiveHTTPHeaders", I am able to see everything happened between my browser and the server and simulate everything with cURL.
