Option to provide custom CA certificate #2

In local networks server certificates are often signed by a local CA. To avoid adding the root certificate to the Java keystore on every system a vault-connected application is running on, the ability of providing a trusted certificate should be added.

There might be multiple solutions, probaly the most simple would be to accept a SSLContext object to pass to the HTTP client. Little more comfortable maybe accepting a File or Path pointing to the certificate and let the ConnectorFactory to the necessary configuration.

Maybe even disabling validation completely should be an option. (Security issue for sure, but even an unencrytped connection is possible... Better unechecked than unencrypted if validation is impossible for any reason.)

Two methods have been added to the HTTPVaultConnectorFactory:

  • withTrustedCA(Path) - Trust only the CA certificate provided in parameter
  • withSslContext(SSLContext) - Use given SSL context

This feature is optional, if nothing is provided here, default system context is used.
