Interface X509HostnameVerifier

All Superinterfaces:
HostnameVerifier
All Known Implementing Classes:
AbstractVerifier, AllowAllHostnameVerifier, BrowserCompatHostnameVerifier, StrictHostnameVerifier

public interface X509HostnameVerifier
extends HostnameVerifier

Interface for checking if a hostname matches the names stored inside the server's X.509 certificate. Implements javax.net.ssl.HostnameVerifier, but we don't actually use that interface. Instead we added some methods that take String parameters (instead of javax.net.ssl.HostnameVerifier's SSLSession). JUnit is a lot easier this way! :-)

We provide the HostnameVerifier.DEFAULT, HostnameVerifier.STRICT, and HostnameVerifier.ALLOW_ALL implementations. But feel free to define your own implementation!

Inspired by Sebastian Hauer's original StrictSSLProtocolSocketFactory in the HttpClient "contrib" repository.

Since:
4.0 (8-Dec-2006)

Method Detail

verify

boolean verify(String host,
               SSLSession session)
Specified by:
verify in interface HostnameVerifier

verify

void verify(String host,
            SSLSocket ssl)
            throws IOException
Throws:
IOException

verify

void verify(String host,
            X509Certificate cert)
            throws SSLException
Throws:
SSLException

verify

void verify(String host,
            String[] cns,
            String[] subjectAlts)
            throws SSLException
Checks to see if the supplied hostname matches any of the supplied CNs or "DNS" Subject-Alts. Most implementations only look at the first CN, and ignore any additional CNs. Most implementations do look at all of the "DNS" Subject-Alts. The CNs or Subject-Alts may contain wildcards according to RFC 2818.

Parameters:
cns - CN fields, in order, as extracted from the X.509 certificate.
subjectAlts - Subject-Alt fields of type 2 ("DNS"), as extracted from the X.509 certificate.
host - The hostname to verify.
Throws:
SSLException - If verification failed.
