SslHandshakeFailedError on iOS Qt5.5-alpha

  • Hi all,
    I'm getting these network and ssl errors when I try to get a reply to a SSL request (like for example

    SSL Error: "The issuer certificate of a locally looked up certificate could not be found"
    Network error: QNetworkReply::NetworkError(SslHandshakeFailedError)

    When I invoke the same request without the https, but with http only, then I get the expected result.
    I'm using Qt5.5-alpha for iOS configured with the following switches:

    ./configure -v -prefix /Users/ro/lib/QT/Qt5.5-alpha-ios-ssl -xplatform macx-ios-clang -debug-and-release -opensource -confirm-license -static -nomake tests -nomake examples -skip qttranslations -skip qtwebkit -skip qtserialport -skip qtwebkit-examples -openssl-linked -I/Users/ro/lib/OPENSSL/OpenSSL-git/include -L/Users/ro/lib/OPENSSL/OpenSSL-git/lib -lcrypto -lssl

    The configure script report tells me that SSL is present:
    OpenSSL .............. yes (linked to the libraries)

    And the OpenSSL version I'm using is this one,, based on OpenSSL 1.0.2a.

    My code is like this:
    #include <QGuiApplication>
    #include <QtNetwork/QNetworkAccessManager>
    #include <QtNetwork/QNetworkRequest>
    #include <QtNetwork/QNetworkReply>

    #include "Controller.h"

    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    QGuiApplication app(argc, argv);

    QNetworkAccessManager qnam;
    QNetworkRequest request;
    QNetworkReply* reply = qnam.get(request);
    Controller* controller = new Controller(reply);
    QObject::connect(reply, SIGNAL(finished()), controller	, SLOT(replyReady()));
    QObject::connect(reply, SIGNAL(error(QNetworkReply::NetworkError)), controller, SLOT(slotError(QNetworkReply::NetworkError)));
    QObject::connect(reply, SIGNAL(sslErrors(QList<QSslError>)), controller, SLOT(slotSslErrors(QList<QSslError>)));
    return app.exec();


    The iOS version of my device is 8.2. The error happens both on the device and the simulator.

    So, any ideas?
    Thanks in advance,

    Might be a silly question but is your OpenSSL library deployed with your application ? Or did you build it statically ?
