What is SSL Handshake Error?
An SSL handshake is a process that begins when your browser sends a secure connection request to a web server. SSL Handshake Error is a message you receive when the SSL handshake process fails.
This SSL handshake failures be caused due to a number of reasons
- The SSL/TLS protocol being requested by Web browser is not supported by the server
- The cipher suite (security algorithm) being requested by Web browser is not supported by the server
- The hostname in the URL doesn’t match what’s on the security certificate
- The certificate chain is invalid or incomplete
- The certificate has expired and or is no longer valid
- The client or server cannot communicate with the server name identification (SNI) servers
