It provides applications a way to use the above protocols without having to create their own cryptographic code. It is aimed to be portable and efficient with a focus on security and interoperability. In many cases, it is used instead of other libraries because GnuTLS is distributed under the GNU Lesser General Public License. However, it was found that the GnuTLS X.509 certificate verification code fails to properly handle certain ...
