Backend Encryption with SSL module & Self Signed Cert

Unanswered Question
Feb 19th, 2009

I am trying to configure backend encryption using the SSL module to communicate with a server using a self signed certificate. I configured Authenticate verify none. I have not copied any cert info from the server. Do I need to? The SSL module is complaining about an invalid cert. My config is basic.

service test-service-cf8-be client

virtual ipaddr protocol tcp port 80

server ipaddr protocol tcp port 443


authenticate verify none




I have this problem too.

If you do backend ssl, the authentication is done by the server - not SSLM.

Is your service up ?

show service ...

Yes it was up and a debug showed an invalid cert message when the service was hit. The answer turned out to be that you still need to import the root CA from the server so that the SSL mod has something to verify the cert against.
