       gnutls_x509_crt_check_hostname2 - API function

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int  gnutls_x509_crt_check_hostname2(gnutls_x509_crt_t cert, const char
       * hostname, unsigned int flags);

       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

       unsigned int flags

       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.

       The  comparison	may have false-negatives as it is done byte by byte in
       non-ascii names.

       When the	 flag  GNUTLS_VERIFY_DO_NOT_ALLOW_WILDCARDS  is	 specified  no
       wildcards  are  considered.  Otherwise  they are only considered if the
       domain name consists of three components	 or  more,  and	 the  wildcard
       starts at the leftmost position.

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