SSL Error Codes

Table 8.1 Error codes defined in sslerr.h

Constant Value Description
SSL_ERROR_EXPORT_ONLY_SERVER -12288 "Unable to communicate securely. Peer does not support high-grade encryption."

The local system was configured to support the cipher suites permitted for domestic use. The remote system was configured to support only the cipher suites permitted for export use.

SSL_ERROR_US_ONLY_SERVER -12287 "Unable to communicate securely. Peer requires high-grade encryption which is not supported." 

The remote system was configured to support the cipher suites permitted for domestic use. The local system was configured to support only the cipher suites permitted for export use.

SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP -12286 "Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s)."

The local and remote systems share no cipher suites in common. This can be due to a misconfiguration at either end. It can be due to a server being misconfigured to use a non-RSA certificate with the RSA key exchange algorithm.

SSL_ERROR_NO_CERTIFICATE -12285 "Unable to find the certificate or key necessary for authentication." 

This error has many potential causes; for example: 

Certificate or key not found in database. 

Certificate not marked trusted in database and Certificate's issuer not marked trusted in database. 

Wrong password for key database. 

Missing database.

SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERTIFICATE -12284 "Unable to communicate securely with peer: peers's certificate was rejected." 

A certificate was received from the remote system and was passed to the certificate authentication callback function provided by the local application. That callback function returned SECFailure, and the bad certificate callback function either was not configured or did not choose to override the error code returned by the certificate authentication callback function.

  -12283 (unused)
SSL_ERROR_BAD_CLIENT -12282 "The server has encountered bad data from the client." 

This error code should occur only on sockets that are acting as servers. It is a generic error, used when none of the other more specific error codes defined in this file applies.

SSL_ERROR_BAD_SERVER -12281 "The client has encountered bad data from the server." 

This error code should occur only on sockets that are acting as clients. It is a generic error, used when none of the other more specific error codes defined in this file applies.

SSL_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED_CERTIFICATE_TYPE -12280 "Unsupported certificate type." 

The operation encountered a certificate that was not one of the well known certificate types handled by the certificate library.

SSL_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED_VERSION -12279 "Peer using unsupported version of security protocol." 

On a client socket, this means the remote server has attempted to negotiate the use of a version of SSL that is not supported by the NSS library, probably an invalid version number. On a server socket, this means the remote client has requested the use of a version of SSL older than version 2.

  -12278 (unused)
SSL_ERROR_WRONG_CERTIFICATE -12277 "Client authentication failed: private key in key database does not correspond to public key in certificate database."
SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN -12276 "Unable to communicate securely with peer: requested domain name does not match the server's certificate." 

This error code should be returned by the certificate authentication callback function when it detects that the Common Name in the remote server's certificate does not match the hostname sought by the local client, according to the matching rules specified for CERT_VerifyCertName

SSL_ERROR_POST_WARNING -12275 (unused)
SSL_ERROR_SSL2_DISABLED -12274 "Peer only supports SSL version 2, which is locally disabled."

The remote server has asked to use SSL version 2, and SSL version 2 is disabled in the local client's configuration.

SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_READ -12273 "SSL received a record with an incorrect Message Authentication Code." 

This usually indicates that the client and server have failed to come to agreement on the set of keys used to encrypt the application data and to check message integrity. If this occurs frequently on a server, an active attack (such as the "million question" attack) may be underway against the server.

SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT -12272 "SSL peer reports incorrect Message Authentication Code."

The remote system has reported that it received a message with a bad Message Authentication Code from the local system. This may indicate that an attack on that server is underway.

SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_ALERT -12271 "SSL peer cannot verify your certificate." 

The remote system has received a certificate from the local system, and has rejected it for some reason.

SSL_ERROR_REVOKED_CERT_ALERT -12270 "SSL peer rejected your certificate as revoked." 

The remote system has received a certificate from the local system, and has determined that the certificate has been revoked.

SSL_ERROR_EXPIRED_CERT_ALERT -12269 "SSL peer rejected your certificate as expired." 

The remote system has received a certificate from the local system, and has determined that the certificate has expired.

SSL_ERROR_SSL_DISABLED -12268 "Cannot connect: SSL is disabled."

The local socket is configured in such a way that it cannot use any of the SSL cipher suites. Possible causes include: (a) both SSL2 and SSL3 are disabled, (b) All the individual SSL cipher suites are disabled, or (c) the socket is configured to handshake as a server, but the certificate associated with that socket is inappropriate for the Key Exchange Algorithm selected.

SSL_ERROR_FORTEZZA_PQG -12267 "Cannot connect: SSL peer is in another FORTEZZA domain."

The local system and the remote system are in different FORTEZZA domains. They must be in the same domain to communicate.

SSL_ERROR_UNKNOWN_CIPHER_SUITE -12266 "An unknown SSL cipher suite has been requested."

The application has attempted to configure SSL to use an unknown cipher suite.

SSL_ERROR_NO_CIPHERS_SUPPORTED -12265 "No cipher suites are present and enabled in this program." 

Possible causes: (a) all cipher suites have been configured to be disabled, (b) the only cipher suites that are configured to be enabled are those that are disallowed by cipher export policy, (c) the socket is configured to handshake as a server, but the certificate associated with that socket is inappropriate for the Key Exchange Algorithm selected.

SSL_ERROR_BAD_BLOCK_PADDING -12264 "SSL received a record with bad block padding."

SSL was using a Block cipher, and the last block in an SSL record had incorrect padding information in it. This usually indicates that the client and server have failed to come to agreement on the set of keys used to encrypt the application data and to check message integrity. If this occurs frequently on a server, an active attack (such as the "million question" attack) may be underway against the server.

SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG -12263 "SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length." 

This generally indicates that the remote peer system has a flawed implementation of SSL, and is violating the SSL specification.

SSL_ERROR_TX_RECORD_TOO_LONG -12262 "SSL attempted to send a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length."

This error should never occur. If it does, it indicates a flaw in the NSS SSL library.

SSL_ERROR_CLOSE_NOTIFY_ALERT -12230 "SSL peer has closed this connection."

The local socket received an SSL3 alert record from the remote peer, reporting that the remote peer has chosen to end the connection. The receipt of this alert is an error only if it occurs while a handshake is in progress. 

SSL_ERROR_PUB_KEY_SIZE_LIMIT_EXCEEDED -12210 "SSL Server attempted to use domestic-grade public key with export cipher suite." 

On a client socket, this error reports that the remote server has failed to perform an "SSL Step down" for an export cipher. It has sent a certificate bearing a domestic-grade public key, but has not sent a ServerKeyExchange message containing an export-grade public key for the key exchange algorithm. Such a connection cannot be permitted without violating U.S. export policies. On a server socket, this indicates a failure of the local library.

SSL_ERROR_NO_SERVER_KEY_FOR_ALG -12206 "Server has no key for the attempted key exchange algorithm." 

An SSL client has requested an SSL cipher suite that uses a Key Exchange Algorithm for which the local server has no appropriate public key. This indicates a configuration error on the local server.

SSL_ERROR_TOKEN_INSERTION_REMOVAL -12205 "PKCS #11 token was inserted or removed while operation was in progress." 

A cryptographic operation required to complete the handshake failed because the token that was performing it was removed while the handshake was underway. Another token may also have been inserted into the same slot.

SSL_ERROR_TOKEN_SLOT_NOT_FOUND -12204 "No PKCS#11 token could be found to do a required operation." 

A cryptographic operation required a PKCS#11 token with specific abilities, and no token could be found in any slot, including the "soft token" in the internal virtual slot, that could do the job. May indicate a server configuration error, such as having a certificate that is inappropriate for the Key Exchange Algorithm selected.

SSL_ERROR_NO_COMPRESSION_OVERLAP -12203 "Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common compression algorithm(s)."
SSL_ERROR_HANDSHAKE_NOT_COMPLETED -12202 "Cannot initiate another SSL handshake until current handshake is complete."
SSL_ERROR_BAD_HANDSHAKE_HASH_VALUE -12201 "Received incorrect handshakes hash values from peer."
SSL_ERROR_CERT_KEA_MISMATCH -12200 "The certificate provided cannot be used with the selected key exchange algorithm."
SSL_ERROR_NO_TRUSTED_SSL_CLIENT_CA -12199 "No certificate authority is trusted for SSL client authentication."
SSL_ERROR_SESSION_NOT_FOUND -12198 "Client's SSL session ID not found in server's session cache."
SSL_ERROR_SERVER_CACHE_NOT_CONFIGURED -12185 "SSL server cache not configured and not disabled for this socket."
SSL_ERROR_RENEGOTIATION_NOT_ALLOWED -12176 "Renegotiation is not allowed on this SSL socket."

Received a malformed (too long or short or invalid content) SSL handshake: 

All the error codes in the following block indicate that the local socket received an improperly formatted SSL3 handshake message from the remote peer. This probably indicates a flaw in the remote peer's implementation. 

SSL_ERROR_RX_MALFORMED_HELLO_REQUEST -12261 "SSL received a malformed Hello Request handshake message."
SSL_ERROR_RX_MALFORMED_CLIENT_HELLO -12260 "SSL received a malformed Client Hello handshake message."

Received a malformed (too long or short) SSL record:

All the error codes in the following block indicate that the local socket received an improperly formatted SSL3 record from the remote peer. This probably indicates a flaw in the remote peer's implementation. 

SSL_ERROR_RX_MALFORMED_CHANGE_CIPHER -12251 "SSL received a malformed Change Cipher Spec record."
SSL_ERROR_RX_MALFORMED_ALERT -12250 "SSL received a malformed Alert record."
SSL_ERROR_RX_MALFORMED_HANDSHAKE -12249 "SSL received a malformed Handshake record."
SSL_ERROR_RX_MALFORMED_APPLICATION_DATA  -12248 "SSL received a malformed Application Data record."

Received an SSL handshake that was inappropriate for the current state:

All the error codes in the following block indicate that the local socket received an SSL3 handshake message from the remote peer at a time when it was inappropriate for the peer to have sent this message. For example, a server received a message from another server. This probably indicates a flaw in the remote peer's implementation. 

SSL_ERROR_RX_UNEXPECTED_HELLO_REQUEST -12247 "SSL received an unexpected Hello Request handshake message."
SSL_ERROR_RX_UNEXPECTED_CLIENT_HELLO -12246 "SSL received an unexpected Client Hello handshake message."

SSL_ERROR_RX_UNEXPECTED_NEW_SESSION_TICKET -12179 "SSL received an unexpected New Session Ticket handshake message."

Received an SSL record that was inappropriate for the current state:

All the error codes in the following block indicate that the local socket received an SSL3 record from the remote peer at a time when it was inappropriate for the peer to have sent this message. This probably indicates a flaw in the remote peer's implementation.

Received record/message with unknown discriminant:

All the error codes in the following block indicate that the local socket received an SSL3 record or handshake message from the remote peer that it was unable to interpret because the byte that identifies the type of record or message contained an unrecognized value. This probably indicates a flaw in the remote peer's implementation.

Unspecified errors that occurred while attempting some operation:

All the error codes in the following block describe the operation that was being attempted at the time of the unspecified failure. These failures may be caused by the system running out of memory, or errors returned by PKCS#11 routines that did not provide meaningful error codes of their own. These should rarely be seen. (Certain of these error codes have more specific meanings, as described.)
