Leftcert configures the certificate that should be used to authenticate the local peer to the remote peer. Read the manual for the configuration file. It explains it.

Windows and iOS clients also validate against the altNames to provide an extra level of assurance. Windows checks that the hostname it connected to is one of the altNames, and iOS checks that the RemoteID in the VPN configuration is one of the altNames.
