I was hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction for the following request:
One important issue for security is that we will want to support HTTPS but not to be required to pay a certification authority (CA) for the SSL certificate. It is easy enough to generate our own certificate for the server, but I wanted to know how Flex/Actionscript can work with such a setup (an untrusted certificate chain). Which of the following applies:- There is an easy API that allows us to permit requests to be made to the server which uses an untrusted certificate- There is no way to allow requests to be made to a server which has an untrusted certificate- Requests can be made to the server with an untrusted certificate, but the UI will require a warning be shown
Flash player, as such, uses the browser to make server side requests, in general. As for certificates, if the browser allows untrusted certificates, the flash player / flex application should work fine.
Does this answer your query ?
