I am currently stuck with the below issue in my environment. Could you please help to check if there is any way to resolve it. The Java code posted worked on my Windows environment, but the same code is not working on my Unix environment.
I am trying on my end to check for solutions.
javax.net.ssl.SSLPeerUnverifiedException: Certificate for <188.8.131.52> doesn't match any of the subject alternative names: [*.thomsonreuters.com] [5/19/17 22:15:02:394 CST] 0000002e SystemErr R at org.apache.http.conn.ssl.SSLConnectionSocketFactory.verifyHostname(SSLConnectionSocketFactory.java:467) [5/19/17 22:15:02:395 CST] 0000002e SystemErr R at org.apache.http.conn.ssl.SSLConnectionSocketFactory.createLayeredSocket(SSLConnectionSocketFactory.java:397) [5/19/17 22:15:02:395 CST] 0000002e SystemErr R at org.apache.http.conn.ssl.SSLConnectionSocketFactory.connectSocket(SSLConnectionSocketFactory.java:355) [5/19/17 22:15:02:395 CST] 0000002e SystemErr R at org.apache.http.impl.conn.DefaultHttpClientConnectionOperator.connect(DefaultHttpClientConnectionOperator.java:142)
The Subject Alternative Names field in the certificate of TR does not have the IP address in it. It only has the URL.
So I had to change my code to use the host name in the URL for the IP address and add the host name in the hosts file for the unix server.
Once host name is added in the hosts file, we were able to make the connection successfully.
