SSLHandshakeException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

Came in this morning and Force.com IDE has started erroring whenever I've tried doing any saving/loading/logging in etc with the server saying:

 

Unable to update project properties:

 

Unable to create connection to server 

 

SSLHandshakeException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

Something is up with the certifiate path but no idea why its suddenly gone wrong. Another developer is fine connecting to the same sandbox. Any ideas?

Fixed. **bleep** update to ESET switched on a bizarre SSL filtering via an ESET certificate which was confusing the hell out of anything that runs in java. Phew.

Hi Radnip,

I am having a similar problem when trying to create a new project or open a class in existing project in eclipse. Could you explain how you resolved it? Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Krishna.

Blimey that takes me back :) Yes it was my Virus Scanner. What it was doing was intercepting the SSL connection and using its own SSL certificate (which Eclipse didn't like). I just disabled the SSL security part on the virus scanner and everything was fine.
