This class was deprecated in API level 22.
Please use openConnection() instead. Please visit this webpage for further details.

The Strict HostnameVerifier works the same way as Sun Java 1.4, Sun Java 5, Sun Java 6-rc. It's also pretty close to IE6. This implementation appears to be compliant with RFC 2818 for dealing with wildcards.

The hostname must match either the first CN, or any of the subject-alts. A wildcard can occur in the CN, and in any of the subject-alts. The one divergence from IE6 is how we only check the first CN. IE6 allows a match against any of the CNs present. We decided to follow in Sun Java 1.4's footsteps and only check the first CN. (If you need to check all the CN's, feel free to write your own implementation!).

A wildcard such as "*.foo.com" matches only subdomains in the same level, for example "a.foo.com". It does not match deeper subdomains such as "a.b.foo.com".

Public methods

toString

Added in API level 1
String toString ()

Returns a string representation of the object. In general, the toString method returns a string that "textually represents" this object. The result should be a concise but informative representation that is easy for a person to read. It is recommended that all subclasses override this method.

The toString method for class Object returns a string consisting of the name of the class of which the object is an instance, the at-sign character `@', and the unsigned hexadecimal representation of the hash code of the object. In other words, this method returns a string equal to the value of:

 getClass().getName() + '@' + Integer.toHexString(hashCode())
 

Returns
String a string representation of the object.
