while trying to access our SSL secured Confluence, I always get this exception:

Unable to log in to server: https://confluence.xyz.de/wiki/rpc/soap-axis/confluenceservice-v1 with user: specification.
Cause: ; nested exception is:
javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBui
lderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

I have imported the whole certificate chain to my local Java cacerts truststore. But the exception still occurs. Even to call directly the CLI Jar with -Dsun.security.ssl.allowUnsafeRenegotiation=true Parameter doesn't help. Always the same exception.

the command:
confluence --action getClientInfo --server "https://confluence.xyz.de/wiki/" --user "specification" --password "***"

confluence version: 4.2.12
cli version: 3.1.0

Has anybody seen this exception as well or knows what to do?

Best regards, Mike

To specify explicit the java truststore seems working:

java -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore="C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_10\jre\lib\security\cacerts" -jar confluence-cli-3.1.0.jar --action getClientInfo --server "https://confluence.xyz/wiki/" --user "specification" --password "****"

Client version: 3.1.0, Java: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 1.7.0_10, OS: Windows 7 6.1

Are you using client certificates?

No, should I?

No, it's just that I'd have been interested in the answer if it was about 2-way SSL. Ignore me.
