NAME
       gnutls_x509_crt_list_verify - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_crt_list_verify(const gnutls_x509_crt_t * cert_list, int cert_list_length,
       const gnutls_x509_crt_t * CA_list, int CA_list_length, const gnutls_x509_crl_t * CRL_list,
       int CRL_list_length, unsigned int flags, unsigned int * verify);

ARGUMENTS
       const gnutls_x509_crt_t * cert_list
		   is the certificate list to be verified

       int cert_list_length
		   holds the number of certificate in cert_list

       const gnutls_x509_crt_t * CA_list
		   is the CA list which will be used in verification

       int CA_list_length
		   holds the number of CA certificate in CA_list

       const gnutls_x509_crl_t * CRL_list
		   holds a list of CRLs.

       int CRL_list_length
		   the length of CRL list.

       unsigned int flags
		   Flags  that	may  be  used to change the verification algorithm. Use OR of the
		   gnutls_certificate_verify_flags enumerations.

       unsigned int * verify
		   will hold the certificate verification output.

DESCRIPTION
       This function will try to verify the given certificate list and return its status.  If  no
       flags  are  specified  (0),  this  function will use the basicConstraints (2.5.29.19) PKIX
       extension. This means that only a certificate authority is allowed to sign a certificate.

       You must also check the peer's name in order to check if the verified certificate  belongs
       to the actual peer.

       The  certificate verification output will be put in  verify and will be one or more of the
       gnutls_certificate_status_t enumerated elements bitwise or'd.  For a more detailed verifi-
       cation status use gnutls_x509_crt_verify() per list element.

RETURNS
       On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a negative error value.
