Subject [jira] [Updated] (HTTPCLIENT-1410) AbstractVerifier.acceptableCountryWildcard check not strict enough
Date Wed, 02 Oct 2013 16:22:43 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1410?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Oleg Kalnichevski updated HTTPCLIENT-1410:
------------------------------------------

      Priority: Minor  (was: Major)
    Issue Type: Improvement  (was: Bug)

Essentially are you saying that with the sole exception of the UK *.co.<countrycode>,
*.info.<countrycode>, etc should be considered valid wildcards? All I can suggest here
that we provide a option to restrict #acceptableCountryWildcard method to .uk domains only.
I am not sure enabling it by default would be a good idea, though.

> I work at a company called info.nl in the Netherlands, so our domain is info.nl. We have
a wildcard certificate in use for several services, *.info.nl.
> The AbstractVerifier has a method acceptableCountryWildcard which checks that you don't
use eg *.co.uk as the wildcard in the certificate. The second to last domain part is checked
against a fixed list, which includes info so our wildcard is not accepted.
> Apparantly there are some countries where info.<countrycode> is seen as a top level
domain but that is not the case for the netherlands. So the check on this is not strict enough
and should also take into account the top level domain.
