"If non-nil, this should be t or a list of checks per hostname regex.
If nil, the default, failures in certificate verification will be
logged (subject to `gnutls-log-level'), but the connection will be
allowed to proceed.
If the value is a list, it should have the form
where each HOST-REGEX is a regular expression to be matched
against the hostname, and FLAGS is either t or a list of
one or more verification flags. The supported flags and the
corresponding conditions to be tested are:
:trustfiles -- certificate must be issued by a trusted authority.
:hostname -- hostname must match presented certificate's host name.
t -- all of the above conditions are tested.
If the condition test fails, an error will be signaled.
If the value of this variable is t, every connection will be subjected
to all of the tests described above."
