I run over the code and see an abstract class that have no code to deal with SSL validation. Why "Skip SSL Certificate Validation" is still an option to tick when that is enforced to be a default behavior. Please correct me if I am wrong.
I'm sorry for the slow response here... the "Skip SSL Certificate Validation" option skips both the trust check and hostname verification. If the option is not ticked, it relies on the truststore in your JRE.
If you're looking at the plugin's source, look at ConcreteHttpClientFactory class. The createHttpClient method's parameter is whether the validation step is skipped. If true, it creates the custom SSLContext. Otherwise, it uses the default context.
Let me know if you have any other questions!
