I wish to convert my request from Http to Https.
I dont have Certificate Issued by a Certificate Authority or Self-Signed Certificate.
Is there any other choice to go with.

Kindly Ignore if i scripted anything wrongly by mistake.

Hi,

Are you trying to connect to a service/application through HTTPS, instead of HTTP? Can you not request the certificate and add it to your truststore? or is that not an option. As far as I know, the most common way of implementing SSL is through certificates. But I vaguely remember reading SRP as an alternative, though I may be completely wrong.

Thanks for your reply.
You are right its most secure way.
But, by using this i am not sure it will change from Http to Https. that is requirement specified for me.
