       gnutls_x509_crt_check_hostname - API function

SYNOPSIS

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int 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 structure

       const char * hostname
                   A null terminated string that contains a DNS name

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 RFC2818 (HTTPS),  which  takes
       into account wildcards, and the DNSName/IPAddress subject alternative name PKIX extension.

RETURNS

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