SSL Error While Consuming WCF Rest Service From Sharepoint Server 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,

    I have created a wcf rest service and sharepoint application both are hosted on same production server.  The issue is when i try to consume the webservice from sharepoint it throws the ssl error saying : could not make trust relationship. I have added the certification in Sharepoint Central Admin but it's not working.

    Please note the wcf rest service is simple .net service , it's not sharepoint websevice.

  • Hi,

    Are you using a self signed key? The client does not trust this key, nor does the key itself provide a chain to validate or a certificate revocation list.

    Please try to check the following options:

    1.turn off certificate validation on the client (bad move, man in the middle attacks abound)

    2.use makecert to create a root CA and create certificates from that (ok move, but there is still no CRL)

    3.create an internal root CA using Windows Certificate Server or other PKI solution then trust that root cert (a bit of a pain to manage)

    4.purchase an SSL certificate from one of the trusted CAs (expensive)

    For more information,please try to refer to this article:

  • Hi Amy,

    Is the url that you refer is explaining about the development certificate ? Can i do the same thing in production as our production server is already using the real certificate ?
