Subject [jira] Commented: (AXIS2C-1541) do not require that CA certificate is present for https
Date Tue, 15 Mar 2011 04:26:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AXIS2C-1541?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13006790#comment-13006790

Dumindu Pallewela commented on AXIS2C-1541:
-------------------------------------------

I think the issue here is just a matter of notation. Even if a CA certificate is not used
(i.e. when using a self signed certificate), we need the server certificate to make an https
connection. In such a case we have to specify the server certificate (self signed) as the
CA certificate. To make things even more confusing, the configuration parameter for this is
called "SERVER_CERT" in axis2.xml !

I think we have documented this well enough at http://axis.apache.org/axis2/c/core/docs/axis2c_manual.html#ssl_client

Am I totally missing the point as I've not touched this piece of code in a few years? :)

> axis2_ssl_utils_initialize_ctx returns NULL if no CA certificate is set, but a CA certificate
is not required for making a https connection.
