Defined in:

Overview

Represents SSL configuration for HTTPClient instance. The implementation depends on OpenSSL.

Trust Anchor Control

SSLConfig loads 'httpclient/cacert.p7s' as a trust anchor (trusted certificate(s)) with add_trust_ca in initialization time. This means that HTTPClient instance trusts some CA certificates by default, like Web browsers. 'httpclient/cacert.p7s' is created by the author and included in released package.

'cacert.p7s' is automatically generated from JDK 1.6. Regardless its filename extension (p7s), HTTPClient doesn't verify the signature in it.

You may want to change trust anchor by yourself. Call clear_cert_store then add_trust_ca for that purpose.

72
# File 'lib/httpclient/ssl_config.rb', line 70

def cert_store
  @cert_store
end

#set_client_cert_file(cert_file, key_file) ⇒ Object

Sets certificate and private key for SSL client authentication.

cert_file

must be a filename of PEM/DER formatted file.

key_file

must be a filename of PEM/DER formatted file. Key must be an RSA key. If you want to use other PKey algorithm, use client_key=.

Calling this method resets all existing sessions.

#set_default_pathsObject

Sets OpenSSL's default trusted CA certificates. Generally, OpenSSL is configured to use OS's trusted CA certificates located at /etc/pki/certs or /etc/ssl/certs. Unfortunately OpenSSL's Windows build does not work with Windows Certificate Storage.

On Windows or when you build OpenSSL manually, you can set the CA certificates directory by SSL_CERT_DIR env variable at runtime.
