Closed, ResolvedPublic


As per the ExtLink, dirmngr’s hostname verification when using a hkps pool is
broken and uses the hostname of the host instead of the hostname of the pool when
verifying the hostname.

Well, that is quite possible. I have seen other reports about this. I have not
yet come around to look at the hkps bugs.

The attached patch fixes hkps: hostname verification and makes
hkps: use SNI correctly.

The patch is against GnuPG 2.1.2. It has been tested successfully against
hkps:// on FreeBSD 10.1 using GnuTLS 3.2.21 and the
2.1 setup instructions at

Thanks. Fixed with commit dc10d46.
