This function instructs GnuTLS to verify the peer's certificate using
the provided hostname. If the verification fails the handshake will
also fail with GNUTLS_E_CERTIFICATE_VERIFICATION_ERROR. In that case
the verification result can be obtained using
The hostname pointer provided must remain valid for the lifetime of
the session. More precisely it should be available during any
subsequent handshakes. If no hostname is provided, no hostname
verification will be performed. For a more advanced verification
function check gnutls_session_set_verify_cert2().
If flags is provided which contain a profile, this function should
be called after any session priority setting functions.
The gnutls_session_set_verify_cert() function is intended to be used
by TLS clients to verify the server's certificate.
