NAME
       gnutls_x509_crt_check_hostname  -  compares  the hostname with certifi‐
       cate's hostname

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_crt_check_hostname(gnutls_x509_crt_t cert, const char *
       hostname);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_x509_crt_t cert
		   should contain an gnutls_x509_crt_t structure

       const char * hostname
		   A null terminated string that contains a DNS name

DESCRIPTION
       This function will check if the given certificate's subject matches the
       given hostname.	 This  is  a  basic  implementation  of	 the  matching
       described  in  RFC2818 (HTTPS), which takes into account wildcards, and
       the DNSName/IPAddress subject alternative name PKIX extension.

RETURNS
       non zero for a successful match, and zero on failure.
