// automatically cancel the single request when it goes out of scope).

// guidelines. In order to successfully verify a certificate as EV,
// either an online or offline revocation check must be successfully
// completed. To ensure it's possible to complete a revocation check,
// callers should also specify either VERIFY_REV_CHECKING_ENABLED or
// VERIFY_REV_CHECKING_ENABLED_EV_ONLY (to enable online checks), and
// VERIFY_CERT_IO_ENABLED (to enable network fetches for online checks).

// NSS only.
// If set, enables online revocation checking via CRLs or OCSP, but only

// set.
// When the verifier is destroyed, all certificate verification requests are

// bitmask, is always filled out regardless of the return value. If the
// certificate has multiple errors, the corresponding status flags are set in
// |verify_result->cert_status|, and the error code for the most serious
// error is returned.
// |flags| is bitwise OR'd of VerifyFlags.
// If VERIFY_REV_CHECKING_ENABLED is set in |flags|, certificate revocation
// checking is performed.
// If VERIFY_EV_CERT is set in |flags| too, EV certificate verification is
// performed. If |flags| is VERIFY_EV_CERT (that is,
// VERIFY_REV_CHECKING_ENABLED is not set), EV certificate verification will
// not be performed.
// |crl_set| points to an optional CRLSet structure which can be used to
// avoid revocation checks over the network.
// |callback| must not be null. ERR_IO_PENDING is returned if the operation
// could not be completed synchronously, in which case the result code will
// be passed to the callback when available.
// |*out_req| will be filled with a handle to the async request.
// This handle is not valid after the request has completed.
