[Solved] remote calling three-party interface error: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException

1. Foreword

Recently, when interfacing with Tencent conference API interface, it started calling the other party’s interface after authentication. During this process, an error occurred: javax.net.ssl.sslhandshakeexception.

2. Cause of occurrence

When you make an HTTPS request, the trust certificate of the third-party service does not exist in the JDK, resulting in the error javax.net.ssl.sslhandshakeexception: sun.security.validator.validatorexception: PKIX path construction failed.

3. Solution

1. Obtain the root certificate and install the certificate into your JRE’s Java cacerts (install the certificate into the pathoyourjdk/JRE/lib directory/cacerts).

2. Ignore verification of SSL certificates.

In many cases, there is no certificate, so the second scheme is used to ignore the SSL certificate verification in your code.

4. Code

Here, you should distinguish between the way you use to call three-party services (resttemplate, okhttpclient).

    private static final OkHttpClient okHttpClient = SSLSocketClient.getUnsafeOkHttpClient();
