public interface SSLCertificateApprovalCallback
This interface is what you should implement if you want to
be able to decide whether or not you want to approve the peer's cert,
instead of having NSS do that.
boolean approve(X509Certificate cert,
- This method is called when the server sends it's certificate to
The 'status' argument passed to this method is constructed by
NSS. It's a list of things 'wrong' with the certificate (which
you can see by calling the status.getReasons() method. So,
if there are problems regarding validity or trust of any of the
certificates in the chain, you can present this info to the user.
If there are no items in the Enumeration returned by getReasons(),
you can assume that the certificate is trustworthy, and return
true, or you can continue to make further tests of your own
to determine trustworthiness.
cert - the peer's server certificate
status - the ValidityStatus object containing a list
of all the problems with the cert
- true allow the connection to continue
false terminate the connection (Expect an IOException
on the outstanding read()/write() on the socket)
