Hi All,

What should I do if I would like use TLS without server authentication ?

Should I just build without a root certificate?

In the TLS Security related API, authentication is done explicitly,
so should I give up that API function?

Best Regards,
Sakagami

Hi Sakagami

Since you want to use non secure communication, you don't need to use any certificates.

Could you try referring the apsta example available at /43xxx_Wi-Fi/apps/snip/apsta.

This example hosts a http server and allows clients to connect to it without the need of any certificates.

Thanks

Hello,

The SSL handshake requires a rootca certificate to authenticate the server's identity. Do you want to use the secure communication between the client and server or a non secure one?

I came across this blog post for SSL handshake. The SSL/TLS Handshake: an Overview - SSL.com

Can you please point out the steps you are referring to?

Dear PriyaM_16,

Thank you for your reply.

>Do you want to use the secure communication between the client and server or a non secure one?

I hope to use a non secure communication.

>Can you please point out the steps you are referring to?

I checked the URL "The SSL/TLS Handshake: an Overview - SSL.com" .

In the second step

"The server responds:"Hey there! Let's ....... .......

..................... Now here's my certificate, including my public key."

I don't use certificate and hope to use the like SSL handshake.

In this case, Could you tell me how to set up the WICED ?

Best Regards,

Sakagami

Dear MuraliR_36,
Thank you for your reply and
sorry for late response.

With my poor English and poor understanding of SSL / TLS,
It looks like we have been going the wrong way. Once, close this thread and open a new one.
Thank you for your supports.

[What I want to do]
    I am planning to make a client to connect to the https server with WiCED.
    Then I hope to disable the server certificate validation check.

Best Regards,
sakagami
