NAME
       gnutls_certificate_verify_peers2 - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_certificate_verify_peers2(gnutls_session_t session, unsigned int * status);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_session_t session
		   is a gnutls session

       unsigned int * status
		   is the output of the verification

DESCRIPTION
       This function will verify the peer's certificate and store the status in the  status vari-
       able as a bitwise or'd gnutls_certificate_status_t values or zero if  the  certificate  is
       trusted.  Note that value in  status is set only when the return value of this function is
       success (i.e, failure to trust a certificate does not imply a negative return value).

       If available the OCSP Certificate Status extension will be utilized by this function.

       To avoid denial of service attacks some default upper limits regarding the certificate key
       size and chain size are set. To override them use gnutls_certificate_set_verify_limits().

       Note  that  you must also check the peer's name in order to check if the verified certifi-
       cate belongs to the actual peer, see gnutls_x509_crt_check_hostname(), or use  gnutls_cer-
       tificate_verify_peers3().

RETURNS
       a negative error code on error and GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) on success.
