gnutls_certificate_verify_peers3(3) gnutls gnutls_certificate_verify_peers3(3)

       gnutls_certificate_verify_peers3 - API function

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int  gnutls_certificate_verify_peers3(gnutls_session_t  session,	 const
       char * hostname, unsigned int * status);

       gnutls_session_t session
		   is a gnutls session

       const char * hostname
		   is the expected name of the peer; may be NULL

       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

       If the  hostname provided is non-NULL 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_UNEXPECTED_OWNER status flag will
       be set.

       In order to verify the purpose of the end-certificate (by checking  the
       extended key usage), use gnutls_certificate_verify_peers().

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