    does midp support https protocol ?

    Hello guys,
    I'm developing a simple midlet that connects to a web site through https protocol, and I'm using the Wireless Toolkit 1.0.4_01.

    The code for my application is the same that you can download from the interesting java tip at the following url : http://wireless.java.sun.com/midp/articles/https

    I get this annoying and strange problem:
    the connection is ok if I try to connect to this site : https://www.wellsfargo.com
    the connection fails if I try to connect to this site : https://cert.webtrust.org/thawte.html
    But both sites have the same certificate, issued by Verisign. These are the main informations about this kind of certificate:
    Version: Version 3
    Certificate Signature Algorithm: PKCS #1 MD5 With RSA Encryption Issuer: www.verisign.com/CPS Incorp.by Ref. LIABILITY LTD.(c)97 VeriSign
    The only difference between these 2 certificates is related with their extensions: in fact the wellfargo's certificate has a Server Authentication and Client Authentication, while the webtrust's certificate hasn't them. So I think that the Wireless toolkit likes certificates with Client/Server authentication and refuses certificates without them. Does anybody know the solution?

    Any help will be mostly appreciated

    best regards

    The standard midp 1.0 specification does not support https.

    The wireless toolkit itself though supports https (kssl)

    hope it helps!
