SYNOPSIS

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       unsigned 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 type

       const char * hostname

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  RFC6125,  and  takes  into
       account wildcards, and the DNSName/IPAddress subject alternative name PKIX extension.

       For details see also gnutls_x509_crt_check_hostname2().

RETURNS

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