MineMeld outbound calls impacted by SSL interception

I could see the node was having problems pulling the external resource due it being decrypted and our CA being used.

 

I added our CA to the Ubuntu store with the processes used here, but still no juice.

Thoughts?

HI @andrew.stanton,

that's what is being used by MineMeld. That file is upgraded with MineMeld upgrades.

The idea then would be:

- take that file and place it in a "safe" directory (a directory persistent across upgrade), like /opt/minemeld/local/certs

- append your cert to that file

- create the file /etc/default/minemeld with contenets "export REQUESTS_CA_BUNDLE=/opt/minemeld/local/certs/cacert.pem"

- sudo service minemeld restart

 

We are working on a utility to do this.

python requests library uses its own CA store and certifi store.  but we have to investigate more how to best handle this.  stay tuned.  thanks!

probably this file:?

 

 

/opt/minemeld/engine/0.9.30/lib/python2.7/site-packages/requests$ ls -lh cacert.pem
-rw-r--r-- 1 minemeld minemeld 302K Dec 15 21:26 cacert.pem
