Hi All,

When I am trying to connect to a thrid party api, using https protocol, I am getting the error as "java.lang.RuntimeException: peer not authenticated". But when i am doing the same with http protocol, it is working fine. Can anybody please suggest me on this..

When we use HTTPS protocol, the server sends back its certificate which then gets verified with the trusted certs at client side. In HTTP connection this does not happen, which is why it works in your case.
I think in your case your client machine might not have server's cert as a trusted cert. Check your keystore.

To better understand the problem you might want to enable ssl trace on your client.
I agree. Here's the link:
