Description

Hi,

It seems the code to check the server's certificate is just commented out in the HTTP client? What doesn't work about it?

Hey,

Support for this in boost::asio seems incomplete (at least it was at the time of implementing it). It was then just added to boost::asio with as comment from the author that it probably needed review (and it does indeed).

We do need to revisit this since it is (obviously) an essential part of using HTTPS.

Regards,

koen

So, apparently, re-enabling this functionality works on all my systems (with boost > 1.52), so I am re-enabling this. If anyone gets problems with older boost versions, they should update to a more recent boost version.
