Class Overview

The HostnameVerifier that works the same way as Curl and Firefox.

The hostname must match either the first CN, or any of the subject-alts. A wildcard can occur in the CN, and in any of the subject-alts.

The only difference between BROWSER_COMPATIBLE and STRICT is that a wildcard (such as "*") with BROWSER_COMPATIBLE matches all subdomains, including "".
