Subject [jira] [Created] (HTTPCLIENT-1792) Improve the error message when hostname verification fails
Date Mon, 05 Dec 2016 15:21:58 GMT
Jens Borgland created HTTPCLIENT-1792:

             Summary: Improve the error message when hostname verification fails
                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1792
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1792
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: HttpClient (classic)
    Affects Versions: 4.4.1
            Reporter: Jens Borgland
            Priority: Minor

When hostname verification fails {{org.apache.http.conn.ssl.SSLConnectionSocketFactory}} will
throw a {{SSLPeerUnverifiedException}} with a message like this:
Host name 'FOO' does not match the certificate subject provided by the peer (CN=BAR)

Including the _subject alternative names_, rather than the CN, in the message would be a lot
more helpful when troubleshooting (and probably more correct since the use of CN matching
is deprecated through RFC 2818).
