@end defvar
@defvar gnutls-verify-error
The @code{gnutls-verify-error} variable allows you to verify SSL/TLS
server certificates for all connections or by host name. It defaults
to @code{nil} for now but will likely be changed to @code{t} later,
meaning that all certificates will be verified.
There are two checks available currently, that the certificate has
been issued by a trusted authority as defined by
@code{gnutls-trustfiles}, and that the hostname matches the
certificate. @code{t} enables both checks, but you can enable them
individually as well with @code{:trustfiles} and @code{:hostname}
Because of the low-level interactions with the GnuTLS library, there
is no way currently to ask if a certificate can be accepted. You have
to look in the @code{*Messages*} buffer.

The @code{gnutls-min-prime-bits} variable is a pretty exotic
customization for cases where you want to refuse handshakes with keys
