NAME
       gnutls_session_set_verify_cert - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       void gnutls_session_set_verify_cert(gnutls_session_t session, const char
       * hostname, unsigned flags);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls session

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

       unsigned flags
                   flags for certificate verification --
                   gnutls_certificate_verify_flags

DESCRIPTION
       This function instructs GnuTLS to verify the peer's certificate using the
       provided hostname. If the verification fails the handshake will also fail
       with GNUTLS_E_CERTIFICATE_VERIFICATION_ERROR. In that case the
       verification result can be obtained using
       gnutls_session_get_verify_cert_status().

       The  hostname pointer provided must remain valid for the lifetime of the
       session. More precisely it should be available during any subsequent
       handshakes. If no hostname is provided, no hostname verification will be
       performed. For a more advanced verification function check
       gnutls_session_set_verify_cert2().

       The gnutls_session_set_verify_cert() function is intended to be used by
       TLS clients to verify the server's certificate.

       3.4.6
