TLS Handshake Fail

Error messages:

  • TLS handshake failed because of an unauthorized certificate.

  • TLS handshake failed because your target uses a self-signed certificate.

What happened:

The SSL certificate used to identify the site is not trusted. This can be due to a self-signed certificate, a certificate that was signed using an untrusted CA, or due to an SSL stripping mechanism.

How to resolve:

Use the β€œ--insecure” flag when running Pynt’s Docker.

** Please note that running in insecure mode means we can’t verify the identity of the server and use this option with caution.
