Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CB-3576) Add support for self-signed SSL certficates in InAppBrowser
Date Mon, 19 Aug 2013 21:19:49 GMT


Joe Bowser resolved CB-3576.

    Resolution: Won't Fix
      Assignee: Joe Bowser  (was: Steve Gill)

After reading the mailing list, it looks like this will NOT be added to InAppBrowser, since
there is very little reason to add it for a corp VPN setup. (If your network is so secure,
why do you need broken SSL?)

>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Android, iOS, Plugin InAppBrowser
>    Affects Versions: 2.7.0, 2.8.0
>         Environment: Android and iOS

>         Attachments:
> Local https links are blocked by default in InAppBrowser (links using a local SSL certificate
which can't be verified by a 3rd party). Ideally, user should be given an option to proceed
or cancel the request like the default desktop/mobile browsers do. 
> Right now, we have to overwrite the following API in Android to access such URLs but
onReceivedSslError() function gets called only for the main PhoneGap window browser and not
for InAppBrowser.
> Create a new class:
> public class CustomWebViewClient extends CordovaWebViewClient {
> 	public static final String LOG_TAG = "Plugin";
> 	public CustomWebViewClient(DroidGap ctx) {
>         super(ctx);
>         Log.d(LOG_TAG, "Constructor!");
>     }
>     @Override
>     public void onReceivedSslError(WebView view, SslErrorHandler handler, SslError error)
>     	handler.proceed();
>     }
> }
> In the main class, we use our custom class as a web view client
>  CordovaWebViewClient webViewClient = new CustomWebViewClient(this);
>         webViewClient.setWebView(this.appView);
>         this.appView.setWebViewClient(webViewClient);
> And similar type of code needs to be written for iOS.
> InAppBrowser should pick up the SSL settings from the main web view and once we overwrite
the onReceivedSslError() function, then it should allow such URLs in the InAppBrowser too.
