GNUtls serv for testing certficates and keys

openssl has s_client and s_server support for testing  certificates. Within GNUtls   { gnutls-serv }  we have the serve option which mimic the  s_server function in openssl

Here's an example for load a server.certificate and key

 you will need   sudo  if you want to bind to a address below 1024

Even if we have a bad key or mismatch of the key+certificate , gnutls-serv  will complain on the certificate  and will not launch.

The GUNtls server is great for SSL/TLS checks pre-launch and give you great diagnostics. If you use a -d option and specify a integer you can give verbose information.
