    How to access Flash Apps over https with a self signed certificate?

    Swami

      I have a Flex app that needs to access data from a SOAP web service over https with a self signed certificate. The app needs to ignore the https warnings, just as a browser would warn & allow the user to proceed. Buying a valid signed certificate is not an option for us.

      It works fine over http.

       

      How can I achieve this?

       

      I read that URLRequest has a property: authenticate, that I can set to false. However, this property is available only for Adobe AIR applications from what I can see. This doesn't seem available for Flex apps.

       

      I have tried this in both Flex 3 & the latest Flash Builder 4. Have the same issue in both cases.

       

      Help appreciated.

       

      Thanks
