Troubleshooting "bad certificate" shield 2.3.1

security

(Nicolas Seyvet) #1

Hi,

We are trying to setup TLS/SSL.

We are using Elastic 2.3.1 and shield 2.3.1. We have a trusted certificate, a trustore and a keystore. The different elastic nodes are handshaking. The problem is that the browser (or external HTTPs queries) return “bad certificate”.

[2016-04-20 07:52:12,988][WARN ][shield.transport.netty ] [datastorage] Caught exception while handling client http traffic, closing connection [id: 0x4554e2e1, /172.17.0.1:37040 => /172.17.0.2:9200]

We tried to turn on SSL/TLS java debug see http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/security/jsse/ReadDebug.html, but the flag –Djavax.net.debug=all makes no difference to the elastic output.

We are now trying wireshark.

How can we troubleshoot SSL/TLS further?
