Property

GioDtlsConnection:database

Declaration

property database: Gio.TlsDatabase [ read, write ]

Description

The certificate database to use when verifying this TLS connection. If no certificate database is set, then the default database will be used. See g_tls_backend_get_default_database().

When using a non-default database, GDtlsConnection must fall back to using the GTlsDatabase to perform certificate verification using g_tls_database_verify_chain(), which means certificate verification will not be able to make use of TLS session context. This may be less secure. For example, if you create your own GTlsDatabase that just wraps the default GTlsDatabase, you might expect that you have not changed anything, but this is not true because you may have altered the behavior of GDtlsConnection by causing it to use g_tls_database_verify_chain(). See the documentation of g_tls_database_verify_chain() for more details on specific security checks that may not be performed. Accordingly, setting a non-default database is discouraged except for specialty applications with unusual security requirements.
