Ken Giusti created PROTON-161:
Summary: SSL impl does not allow verification of the peer's
Project: Qpid Proton
Issue Type: Bug
Affects Versions: 0.3
Reporter: Ken Giusti
Assignee: Ken Giusti
The current SSL implementation validates the peer's certificate, and will not
permit the connection to come up if the certificate is invalid.
However - it does not provide a way to check if the peer's identity as provided
in the certificate is the expected identity (eg, the same hostname used to set
up the TCP connection). While a certificate may be valid (that is, signed by a
CA trusted by the client), it may not belong to the intended destination.
RFC2818 explains how this should be done - see section 3.1 Server Identity.
