       gnutls_certificate_verify_peers - API function

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int	gnutls_certificate_verify_peers(gnutls_session_t      session,
       gnutls_typed_vdata_st * data, unsigned int  elements,  unsigned	int  *

       gnutls_session_t session
		   is a gnutls session

       gnutls_typed_vdata_st * data
		   an array of typed data

       unsigned int elements
		   the number of data elements

       unsigned int * status
		   is the output of the verification

       This  function  will verify the peer's certificate and store the status
       in the  status variable as a bitwise  or'd  gnutls_certificate_status_t
       values  or zero if the certificate is trusted. Note that value in  sta‐
       tus is set only when the return value of this function is success (i.e,
       failure to trust a certificate does not imply a negative return value).
       The default verification flags used by this function can	 be  overriden
       using  gnutls_certificate_set_verify_flags().  See the documentation of
       gnutls_certificate_verify_peers2()  for	details	 in  the  verification

       The    acceptable    data    types   are	  GNUTLS_DT_DNS_HOSTNAME   and
       GNUTLS_DT_KEY_PURPOSE_OID.  If a DNS hostname  is  provided  then  this
       function	 will  compare	the  hostname  in  the certificate against the
       given. The comparison will be accurate for ascii names; non-ascii names
       are compared byte-by-byte.  If names do not match the GNUTLS_CERT_UNEX‐
       PECTED_OWNER status flag will be set.

       If a key purpose OID is provided and the end-certificate	 contains  the
       extended	 key  usage PKIX extension, it will be required to be have the
       provided key purpose (e.g., GNUTLS_KP_TLS_WWW_SERVER), or be marked for
       any     purpose,	    otherwise	  verification	  will	  fail	  with

       a negative error code on error and GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) on success.
