Intro

Handle invalid certificates in SSL connections. This module is needed if connections with SSL endpoints providing self-signed/invalid certificates.

Description

Handle invalid certificates in TLS/SSL connections. This module is needed if connections with TLS/SSL endpoints providing self-signed/invalid certificates. Everytime a TLS/SSL connection is established, the certificate of the server is verified. If no trust-anchor can be found or the hostname does not match the specified name the connection normally rejected. At this point this plugin intercepts and prompts the user if the connection should be established regardless.

It allows accepting invalid TLS/SSL certificates once for the current session or for all further sessions.

Using this module should be a last resort - fixing the certificate is preferred!
