Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos created an issue:

  Currently we don't verify that the purpose of the peer's certificate (server or client), matches the expected one, unless the application explicitly requests that. However there is no reason not to check the key purpose automatically, and the calling function has the entity (server or client) available to it. As this may be seen as breaking existing expectations, thus should go into a minor release update.
