Authenticate Server certificate

1. Submitting http transaction and the response would be the correct URL
(https) for access.
2. Checking the certificate on the server (URL returned above). Validate
that the
    -- certificate ends with
    -- URL in the certificate match URL retrieved above
    -- Certificate is from a valid certificate authority
    -- Certificate must not be expired.

How do I get server certificate using cURL? The only way I saw so far is by
doing a verbose/debug mode and parse the response string for the items I'm
looking for. I believe, there should be a better way of doing this.

Thanks in advance,
