    After couple hours of looking around i am kind of stuck. I can access by minio server via web browser with a green lock. I was able to get cloud berry to work without ssl but when i enable ssl i got the following message "The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel" any suggestion?

    Hi Jacky,

    I have investigated this a little bit.
    The issue depends on server and client cipher suites. The same version should be allowed/available on both sides otherwise TLS channel will not be established.

    I have look on minio on windows server 2008 installation.
    These cipher are availble by default.

    And these only in case elliptic curve method is used for generating certificate.
    If you use self signed ssl certificate, you can regenerate it with elliptic curve method.
    Probably you can also ask for such cetificate from the public authority.

    Windows 7 client.
    We use native client and there is only ECDSA AES-GCM ciphers in common.
    No updates available for extending the list.
    Browsers (Chrome and Firefox) use ChaCha20-Poly1305 ciphers, that are not included in windows client.
    Known workaround for Windows 7 - update minio server certificate.

    Windows 10 client
    RSA authentication method available, so everything will run smoothly.

    Please tell what is your environment (server/client)?
    Probably there is an easy way to extend list of ciphers on minio server side, hasn't looked yet.

    Currently I am testing the minio server on a Windows 7 with a SSL extracted from IIS 2012 R2. So far the only client that i have tested is windows 7. Need to use minio as storage on 7,8,10, 2012 r2 and mac os. I will report back once i have a chance to test the new certificate. Need to use minio as storage on 7,8,10, 2012 r2 and mac os.

    Mine minio tests did not had any sucess, with http and https as well. #165929
  • Jacky
    were you able to login via the web?
  • Jacky
    The error is gone after switching the ssl to ECDSA. Getting the cetificate from a public authority was the hardest. namecheap was the cheapest that offer ECDSA.
  • Jacky
    Is there another known problem with minio on mac? It works fine on windows 7 and 8 but i am getting "unknown operation (http) error". CCB was able to create the bucket but nothing else.
  • Stratos Misinezis
    I am able to login via http and upload manually files to folder. But using CBB although that the plan works ok nothing is uploaded. I have not used SSL at all. I have tried in W2012 Server and W7 with the same results.
  • Jacky
    did u disable SSL on CBB? it is under the advance tap

    The error code was happening on Mac OS only. Everything work as expected on windows 7 and 8 but haven't had time to test it on 2012 and 10. This is what i found on the log of the mac os.

    So we should request an ECDSA certificate from the authority then? This is done in the CSR step?
  • Stratos Misinezis
    Yes I did as CBB guys asked me to do but no sucess
  • Andrey
    Your private key should be generated with elliptic curve. This is prior CSR step.
  • Martijn V
    Thanks! Using an Elliptic Curve (ECDSA) key/cert pair fixes the issue I had with Windows 7 and Minio. Will do some more testing on the current releases and hopefully catch up with them again.
  • Ian Yin
    Hi Martijn, I am facing same issue and desperate for a solution. Did you get it working with purchase a SSL certificate from namecheap.com ? I found there are 13 different SSL certificate purchase option on <a href="http://namecheap.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">namecheap.com</a> . May I ask you which one did you purchase? Thanks!
  • Martijn V
    I bought my certificate with a local reseller selling Comodo PremiumSSL certificates. However, you do generate the EC private key yourself I assume. That will in turn generate a CSR with EC and you'll provide only the CSR to the SSL vendor.
  • Martijn V
    I meant a PositiveSSL.

    Hi. I want to run CBB on Mac OS X 10.11.6 and backup to a remote location Minio server on linux. I want to setup encryption but based on the above there seems to be issues with encryption for CBB/Mac backing up to Minio. I would be interested to hear back from anyone who has succeeded to enable encryption in that setup. Thanks.
