Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1119) Server Name Indication (SNI) Support
Date Fri, 15 Feb 2013 19:11:16 GMT

Oleg Kalnichevski commented on HTTPCLIENT-1119:
-----------------------------------------------

@Josef 
This is a long and and unpleasant story. Google is most likely going to add SNI to their HttpURLConnection.
I have no idea what they are going to do about their fork of HttpClient.

@John
It is a combination of both. I do not want to end up having to maintain that particular bit
of code when all it takes to enable SNI on Java 7 is one line of code.

@Will
You are right. SNI extensions are used during SSL handshake before the session is fully established.
My main points still holds, though. SNI is a TLS level aspect. It is a responsibility of individual
applications to ensure that they operate in an appropriate security context.

> Provide support for Server Name Indication (SNI) support as per RFC 3546 (section 3.1).
> Currently attempting to connect to SNI enabled host 'expectedhost' over SSL using http
client results in an SSLException similar to:
> javax.net.ssl.SSLException: hostname in certificate didn't match: <expectedhost>
!= <defaulthost>
>   at org.apache.http.conn.ssl.AbstractVerifier.verify(AbstractVerifier.java:220)
> We use SNI on some of our environments and were trying to use httpclient to automatically
test host access and availability.
