const gnutls_x509_crt_t * CA_list

is one certificate that is considered to be trusted one

int CA_list_length

holds the number of CA certificate in CA_list

unsigned int flags

Flags that may be used to change the verification algorithm. Use OR of the gnutls_certificate_verify_flags enumerations.
