Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-1051) SSL connections cannot be established using resolvable IP address
Date Thu, 03 Feb 2011 20:25:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1051?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12990286#comment-12990286

Alex Dupre commented on HTTPCLIENT-1051:

Wrong test. Try to connect to The certificate has CN=,
but the check is done for 93-62-162-60.ip23.fastwebnet.it

>                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1051
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1051
>             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: HttpConn
>    Affects Versions: 4.1 Final
>            Reporter: Alex Dupre
>            Priority: Minor
> HttpClient 4.1 introduced a regression in establishing SSL connections to remote peers
(it seems this is a common regression for major httpclient updates, see HTTPCLIENT-803).
> The new SSLSocketFactory.connectSocket method calls the X509HostnameVerifier with InetSocketAddress.getHostName()
parameter. When the selected IP address has a reverse lookup name, the verifier is called
with the resolved name, and so the IP check fails.
> 4.0 release checked for original ip/hostname, but this cannot be done with the new connectSocket()
> The TestHostnameVerifier.java only checks and so masked the issue, because
the matching certificate has both "localhost" and "", but actually only "localhost"
is matched. A test case with would be better.
