This class was deprecated in API level 22.

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".

toString

Added in API level 1
String toString ()

Returns a string containing a concise, human-readable description of this object. Subclasses are encouraged to override this method and provide an implementation that takes into account the object's type and data. The default implementation is equivalent to the following expression:

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

See Writing a useful toString method if you intend implementing your own toString method.
