VIP Test Drive Error

Created: 01 Mar 2013 • Updated: 12 Mar 2013 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I just download the APIs for (VIP) Developer Test Drive (http://www.symantec.com/connect/vip-developer), but Im getting an error when try to access the URL https://pilot-vipservices-auth.verisign.com.

The error is "The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel".

When looking for the error I discovered that the file certificate TesteDrive.p12, that comes with the SDK, was expired on 24 Feb 2013.

The questions are:

1. does this expired certificate be the cause of the error?

2. is the certificate associated with the URL https://pilot-vipservices-auth.verisign.com?

3. can i get a new valid certificate?

Thanks in advance.

Dear Ctsh,

We are currently working on resolving the certificate issue with the Test Drive SDK. You will see a new download posted to address this issue in a week or so.

However, if you are already a Symantec VIP customer, we will suggest you to contact your Symantec Sales contact and request for evaluation of a newer version of SDK that provides added security and enhanced APIs with Intelligent Authenitcation under a signed non-disclosure agreement.

Regards,

Symantec VIP Team

Hi All,

The zip download has been updated with a new certificate on April 10, 2013. Hence, you should be able to download and use the TestDrive SDK zip file.

However, if you are already a Symantec VIP customer, we will suggest you to contact your Symantec Sales contact and request for evaluation of a newer version of SDK that provides added security and enhanced APIs with Intelligent Authenitcation under a signed non-disclosure agreement.
