OPENSSL internal: SSLV3 ALERT HANDSHAKE FAILURE

Full text of the error:

SSL routines:OPENSSL_internal:SSLV3_ALERT_HANDSHAKE_FAILURE

If you encounter such an error, there are at least two reasons:

  • Incompatible version of boring-ssl library.
  • Private key problem. For example, we wrote our own KeyManager implementation and the getPrivateKey() method returns null, or there is no such private key at all.

If you still have any questions, feel free to ask me in the comments under this article, or write me on promark33@gmail.com.

If I saved your day, you can support me :)

  1. We are getting this error when we try to invoke a service with client authentication. We are using postman to invoke the service. Could you please help here?
