Re: [mosquitto-dev] mosquitto with tls

Hello Leandro,

Can you check if user running mosquito_pub/mosquito_sub has access permission to the cert and key files. 
I had encountered same error while running my mqqt client implementation. Moving all files to the location with required access permission solved it for me.

Hi guys.
I would like to ask some help using mosquitto with tls option.
I successfully configured my server with tls option using the all-ca.crt , server.crt and server.key certificates provided with mosquitto source.
The problem is when I try to make it work with my own generated certificates.

I followed official documentation
used the script.

But when trying to connect , I receive
"Error: A TLS error occurred."         on the mosquitto_pub and mosquitto_sub  clients.

And on the server side:

1533005975: OpenSSL Error: error:14094418:SSL routines:ssl3_read_bytes:tlsv1 alert unknown ca
1533005975: OpenSSL Error: error:140940E5:SSL routines:ssl3_read_bytes:ssl handshake failure (

1533007440: OpenSSL Error: error:14094438:SSL routines:ssl3_read_bytes:tlsv1 alert internal error
1533007440: OpenSSL Error: error:140940E5:SSL routines:ssl3_read_bytes:ssl handshake failure (

I have:
mosquitto 1.4.15 version
and mosquitto_sub version 1.4.15 running on libmosquitto 1.4.15.

Can anyone help?
Some script / tutorial to generate my own pki ?
Is something wrong with my mosquitto server?

Any help would be appreciated,
