        Okay, I am new to the wide wonders of SSL certificates and authentication so I am probably doing something very very obviously wrong here. But I am trying to setup an NSURLSession to download a file from server proxied through an SSL Gateway. For reasons involved with the solution we are building we want to use a non-standard CA for signing the cert. As a result I have a CACert, server certificate and a server private key. These have been worked into a pkcs12 file which I load to get the identity from the file and I then try to do a security trust evaluation with that cert.

         

        What I get is that if I connect to a server that uses a publicly signed cert then the server trust authentication works just fine and I get the callbacks I am expecting. So I know I've done the delegate hookup correctly.

         

        However with the client certificate challenge on the test URL indicated in the code I get a -9802 error. Which suggests that either the cert is being evaluated properly or I have got something else wrong. Indeed the server tries to move on to ServerTrust and then curls everything up. (But curiously the didBecomeInvalidWithError callback doesn't get called, which I was expecting when everything goes wrong.)

         

        I have turned CFNetworking diagnostics on and the device log ends up looking like this :-

          Either I’m very confused or you are (-:  You wrote:

          But I am trying to setup an NSURLSession to download a file from server proxied through an SSL Gateway. For reasons involved with the solution we are building we want to use a non-standard CA for signing the cert. As a result I have a CACert, server certificate and a server private key.

          From the above it sounds like you’re trying to override HTTPS server trust evaluation.  That is, your server is using a certificate issued by a CA that’s not trusted by the system by default, and thus you need to override the client’s authentication of the certificate being presented to it by the server.

          However, the code you’ve posted shows you handling the NSURLAuthenticationMethodClientCertificate authentication challenge, which is the exact opposite of this.  That challenge allows the client to apply a digital identity (the combination of a certificate and the private key associated with the public key embedded in that certificate) to the connection, so the server can then authenticate the client based on that certificate.

          So, which is it?  Or perhaps both?


          If you’re overriding HTTPS server trust evaluation, there’s two things you need to consider:

          • By default all TLS clients on our system do standard HTTPS server trust evaluation (per RFC 2818).  In most cases you can override that using the techniques described in Technote 2232 HTTPS Server Trust Evaluation.

          • High-level HTTPS clients have additional security requirements enforced by App Transport Security (ATS).  For more info on ATS, including links to the docs, see my App Transport Security pinned post.

          To allow connections to a server whose certificate was issued by a CA that’s not trusted by default, you have to disable ATS for that server.  This is relatively easy to do from a technical standpoint but it does have App Review implications.  It is must less hassle, IMO, to give your server a proper CA-issued certificate.  There’s three common cases here:

          • If you’re just testing, set up your own test CA, install its root on your device, and have it issue a certificate for your server.  You can do this on the Mac using the instructions from Technote 2326 Creating Certificates for TLS Testing.

          • If you’re deploying an enterprise app, have your enterprise’s CA issue a certificate for your server and then install your enterprise’s CA’s root certificate on your device via MDM (it may already be there).

          • If you’re deploying your app to normal users via the App Store, configure your server with a certificate issued by a CA whose root certificate is built in to iOS.

              The chances are very good that I am quite confused. As I said right at the begining I am very new to the fun and games of SSL.

               

              The setup I am working with has these features :-

               

              SSL to a host specified by IP. (Don't ask me why they don't want to give it a public DNS name)

              Client certificate issued by a CA that is, effectively, a private CA that only the company knows about.

              Private key (that I assume is bound to the client cert to form an identity)

              CACert for the client certificate.

               

              The code is a bit confused because I've been thrashing around a bit with it not realy knowing what I am doing. Testing their setup using openssl works so I know the server itself is functional.

               

              My understanding is that when we do the openssl connection by specificying the cert, cacert and private key we are doing a ClientCertificate authentication. Which is why the code is structured that way.

               

              However (and I have been reading the technotes) the problem I have with their approach is that at best it requires the CACert to be added to the trusted authorities list (which given that we are making fundamentally a support library means we can't easily do this programmaticly). To make it more fun because they are using IP addresses and not DNS names then adding exceptions to ATS for the test environments (because they want to use cheaper self signed certs for the test environments) is impossible.

               

              I am lobbying them to stop being silly and do the following :-

               

              -give all the servers DNS names like sane people.

              -Use a publicly signed real certificate for the production server and rely on servertrust authentication.

              -Use self signed certificates for the test environments but add exceptions into our test application for those servers to keep ATS happy. (But these never get used in production code)

               

              Which I think gets us where we need to be.

               

              However am I right in thinking the primary issue is that ATS is rejecting the CACert we supply because a) it is self signed and b) we can't provide an exception due to the IP only connecting address? Or am I over simplfying?

               

              Anyway, appreciate your answer it has made some things clearer.

                  • Private key (that I assume is bound to the client cert to form an identity)

                  • CACert for the client certificate.

                  Just FYI, you don’t need this last item.  Lemme explain how some of these parts fit together and hopefully that’ll make it clear why.

                  Actually, it seems like this could be generally useful so I’ve put it in a separate post; please read TLS for App Developers before continuing.

                  The above explains why you won’t need your CACert for the client certificate item.  Specifically:

                  • you don’t need it in order to do trust evaluation on the client, because you never do trust evaluation of the client certificate on the client

                  • you don’t need to pass it to the server, because if the server is going to use it for trust evaluation it will have its own copy built in

                  I am lobbying them to stop being silly and do the following :-

                  • give all the servers DNS names like sane people.

                  Yes, that’s important.  Using IP addresses is setting yourself up for failure in so many ways, including ATS and IPv6 compatibility.

                  • Use a publicly signed real certificate for the production server and rely on servertrust authentication.

                  Yes, that’s critical.  Without this you’ll need to override ATS in order to do custom HTTPS server trust evaluation, and that will soon require that you justify your overrides to App Review.  It’s much better to get a CA-issued certificate for your server.

                  • Use self signed certificates for the test environments but add exceptions into our test application for those servers to keep ATS happy. (But these never get used in production code)

                  There’s a better way to do this:

                  1. create your own custom CA

                  2. use that CA to create a digital identity for your server

                  3. install that CA’s root certificate on your client devices

                  This has a bunch of advantages:

                  • It’s less code to write; you don’t have to override server trust evaluation on the client, disable ATS, and so on.

                  • Because there’s no test code in your client, there’s no chance of you accidentally shipping an app to customers with that test code enabled.

                    WARNING Don’t discount this risk.  There’s at least one ‘big name’ developer who has had to ship an emergency update to their app because they accidentally shipped it with server trust evaluation disabled.  Don’t be that guy!

                  • Similarly, there’s no chance of any App Review hiccoughs because there are no ATS exceptions that you have to remember to remove in the production build.

                  • Your testing is more realistic because it uses exactly the same code paths as your production app.

                  If necessary you can create a test CA using facilities that are built in macOS; see Technote 2326 Creating Certificates for TLS Testing for the details.

                  However am I right in thinking the primary issue is that ATS is rejecting the CACert we supply because a) it is self signed and b) we can't provide an exception due to the IP only connecting address?

                  It’s hard to say without being able to poke at your server.  To investigate this I recommend that you disable ATS entirely (by adding an ATS dictionary that contains just the NSAllowsArbitraryLoads key).  If the connection still fails, you know ATS is not the issue.
