Interface HostnameVerifier

  • public interface HostnameVerifier
    This class is the base interface for hostname verification.

    During handshaking, if the URL's hostname and the server's identification hostname mismatch, the verification mechanism can call back to implementers of this interface to determine if this connection should be allowed.

    The policies can be certificate-based or may depend on other authentication schemes.

    These callbacks are used when the default rules for URL hostname verification fail.
