Dropbox API Integration

Dropbox API Integration

AS131
Explorer | Level 4

I am integrating the DropBox API calls into a web application.

I see the following warning during application startup :

WARNING [com.dropbox.core.http.StandardHttpRequestor] (default task-50) Certificate pinning disabled for HTTPS connections. This is likely because your JRE does not return javax.net.ssl.HttpsURLConnection objects for https network connections. Be aware your app may be prone to man-in-the-middle attacks without proper SSL certificate validation. If you are using Google App Engine, please configure DbxRequestConfig to use GoogleAppEngineRequestor.

How to get rid of this warning ?

Are you running on Google App Engine? If so, you should use GoogleAppEngineRequestor as documented here.

Otherwise, you can consider switching to a JRE that does return javax.net.ssl.HttpsURLConnection objects for HTTPS network connections, as that would enable the SDK to implement better security for your Dropbox API calls.

If not though, this is just a logged warning, so it shouldn't interfere with the operation of your app.
