NAME

gnutls_certificate_verify_peers - This function returns the peer's certificate verification status  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_certificate_verify_peers(gnutls_session_t session);  

ARGUMENTS

gnutls_session_t session
is a gnutls session
 

DESCRIPTION

This function will try to verify the peer's certificate and return its status (trusted, invalid etc.). However you must also check the peer's name in order to check if the verified certificate belongs to the actual peer.

The return value should be one or more of the gnutls_certificate_status_t enumerated elements bitwise or'd, or a negative value on error.

This is the same as gnutls_x509_verify_certificate().  

DEPRECATED

Use gnutls_certificate_verify_peers2() instead.
