Invalid SSL certificate with cordova-plugin-crosswalk-webview


For our app I have to use the crosswalk webview, latest version 2.3.0. The problem is we have to use a SSL connection for https and wss calls, but there is not a trusted certificate.

On every request we make over https we get a TOAST message (which in my opinion does not came from IONIC but from cordova plugin) “Request was denied for security.”

We have a not trusted SSL certificate and I think this should be the problem! But I’m not able to resolve the problem, I tried many thinks like this

This is a very urgent problem, perhaps someone from the ionic team can help me? @brandyshea @mhartington


The toast is actually from Android it self, so it’s happening at the browser level. To be fair, the best/correct way to resolve this would be to get a trusted ssl certificated.

Both Android and iOS have been cracking down on accessing non-secure resources.


@mhartington okay thx you very much. Tomorrow I will install a valid certificate!! thx you so much for your help as always!


For anybody else in this situation, I recommend Let’s Encrypt.


Yes we also use Let’s encrypt :slight_smile: the only problem was to install this to the hardware I need support of our hardware team which will take several days :slight_smile:

thx to everyone


So the SSL certificate from this place is free?
If I use it in my web app Chrome will not say it is an untrusted certificate?


Yes and yes and padding.


Another good one is, they’re who I use and I never have any downtime, slow connections, certificate issues or anything. Gets the job best to it’s abilities in my opinion.


We can not use LET’s encrypt on a LOCAL hardware. We have a gateway and have a ionic software which is configuring the gateway. So this is an embedded solution and not a WEB solution.

So all this is not a solution for us, but we found a workaround on the problem. If we have a solution for it we would like to share it here!


You can use probably Android’s Network Security Configuration to support self signed certificates,, at the moment none of us was able to get it work.

I would like to open later a new post to discuss this and close this thread.
