Make znc check the ircd's SSL certificate to prevent
man-in-the-middle attacks.

    Wow, there are IRC servers with valid SSL certificates out there?

    This module doesn't really check the SSL certificate, but it remembers the cert's pubkey. If the next time we connect to this server another pubkey (=another cert) is presented, the connection is aborted:

    Hope this helps.
