There was a discussion about this subject a year ago ( it may be related to ).

That's client verification, a worthy topic for sure, and one I'm going to be deep-diving into soon. But different from the problem I was thinking of at the moment.

I vaguely recall some discussion about SSL certificate verification. See RFC 6125 as well.

Right, until proven otherwise, RFC 6125 was what I was looking for.
