Certificate issue with web service

Hi All,

I am trying to consume a web service in ABAP and have set up the Enterprise service & associated logical port for the same. I am facing the the following error on accessing the method of the web service-

SRT: Processing error in Internet Communication Framework: ("ICF Error when receiving the response: ICM_HTTP_SSL_ERROR")

I checked for the error log in ICM and found this-

Thr 31] *** ERROR during SecudeSSL_SessionStart() from SSL_connect()==SSL_ERROR_SSL

Thr 31]    session uses PSE file "/usr/sap/NP3/DVEBMGS00/sec/SAPSSLC.pse"

Thr 31] SecudeSSL_SessionStart: SSL_connect() failed

secude_error 9 (0x00000009) = "the verification of the server's certificate chain failed"

I looked up on the trust manager (STRUST) to verify the certs in place. I seem to have the valid certs for the webservice.

Please help me identify what can be done to resolve this issue.

    Have you checked the certificate's validity period?

    At times you may have to install a secondary certificate, primary being the company's. The secondary certificate is usually from a third party certficate authority such as Verisign.

    Hope this helps in your troubleshooting.

      Hi Girish,

      Thanks for your reply.

      We found the issue. The certs were being applied to Anonymous PSE while the auto created RFC was pointing to SAP Standard PSE, so we had the certs installed in the standard one itself.
