 * This class is the base interface for hostname verification.
 * <P>
 * During handshaking, if the URL's hostname and
 * the server's identification hostname mismatch, the
 * verification mechanism can call back to implementers of this
 * interface to determine if this connection should be allowed.
 * <P>
 * The policies can be certificate-based
 * or may depend on other authentication schemes.
 * <P>
 * These callbacks are used when the default rules for URL hostname
 * verification fail.
