Systemlinkcloud API how request SSL certificate

Solved!
Go to solution

Hi Folks.


We are developing an C++ library to connect with NI SystemlinkCloud, and one of my engineers has the following doubt: To use the SystemLink API I have to establish an https connection, but a SSL certificate is required. It is possible to make a simple http request to a SystemlinkCloud webserver to get that SSL certificate? I will appreciate your orientation.

 

Best regards.

You could just look at the available LV API and see how that is implemented. (It's not password protected).

The LV API doesn't have any special knowledge of SystemLink Cloud, it's just a bunch of primitives just as you will have in C++.

The client API should verify the server (as we do in LabVIEW), but you shouldn't need a local certificate for the client application.

Hello

Our regulations prohibit any acquisition of a device containing encryption or cryptography functions. We would like to have a certificate which certifying that the USB 6211 does not contain encryption or cryptography functions.

Can you please help me to get it to allow me continue my work with the regulation department ?
