gnutls_certificate_set_verify_function − API function


, gnutls_certificate_verify_function * void

gnutls_certificate_credentials_t cred
            is a gnutls_certificate_credentials_t type.

gnutls_certificate_verify_function * func
            is the callback function

This function sets a callback to be called when peer’s
certificate has been received in order to verify it on
receipt rather than doing after the handshake is completed.

The callback’s function prototype is: int

If the callback function is provided then gnutls will call
it, in the handshake, just after the certificate message has
been received.  To verify or obtain the certificate the
gnutls_certificate_get_peers() functions can be used.

The callback function should return 0 for the handshake to
continue or non−zero to terminate.
