In my project I need to connect to an intra-net web service but we need SSL connection between the two machines.
Because this is an intra-net site the certificate of the web service might be a self-signed certificate.
The web service and the web page that loads my Flex application resides on the same web server (tomcat) so when I load the web page of the application with HTTPS I been asked to confirm the certificate, I confirm it but this confirmation does not apply on the Flex application (on Internet Explorer and Firefox).
I tried Google's Chrome and it actually asked me twice for confirmation, one for the web page and one for the connection to the web service so it worked great.
Is there a way to tell Flash player to accept also self-signed certificates of is it entirely concern the browser and Adobe guys can't do nothing about it?
In other words, is there a way to connect to a self-signed certificates HTTPS web services from Adobe Flex???
