+=head1 NAME
+SSL_CTX_get0_param, SSL_get0_param, SSL_CTX_set1_param, SSL_set1_param -
+get and set verification parameters
+=head1 SYNOPSIS
+ #include <openssl/ssl.h>
+ X509_VERIFY_PARAM *SSL_CTX_get0_param(SSL_CTX *ctx)
+ X509_VERIFY_PARAM *SSL_get0_param(SSL *ssl)
+ int SSL_CTX_set1_param(SSL_CTX *ctx, X509_VERIFY_PARAM *vpm)
+ int SSL_set1_param(SSL *ssl, X509_VERIFY_PARAM *vpm)
+SSL_CTX_get0_param() and SSL_get0_param() retrieve an internal pointer to
+the verification parameters for B<ctx> or B<ssl> respectively. The returned
+pointer must not be freed by the calling application.
+SSL_CTX_set1_param() and SSL_set1_param() set the verification parameters
+to B<vpm> for B<ctx> or B<ssl>.
+=head1 NOTES
+Typically parameters are retrieved from an B<SSL_CTX> or B<SSL> structure
+using SSL_CTX_get0_param() or SSL_get0_param() and an application modifies
+them to suit its needs: for example to add a hostname check.
+=head1 EXAMPLE
+Check hostname matches "www.foo.com" in peer certificate:
+ X509_VERIFY_PARAM *vpm = SSL_get0_param(ssl);
+ X509_VERIFY_PARAM_set1_host(vpm, "www.foo.com");
+SSL_CTX_get0_param() and SSL_get0_param() return a pointer to an
+B<X509_VERIFY_PARAM> structure.
+SSL_CTX_set1_param() and SSL_set1_param() return 1 for success and 0
+for failure.
+=head1 SEE ALSO
+=head1 HISTORY
+These functions were first added to OpenSSL 1.0.2.
