bing api ssl cert issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, we are using the bing api in order to retrieve nearby locations from the phone book. We must use ssl to call the bing api. The certificate bing is using is an akamai cert, and we get a cert error because the names do not match. Is there a different url we can use for bing ssl that does not have the akamai cert? Installing the cert as trusted on our servers is not an option. 

    The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a different website's address.

    url: https://api.bing.net/json.aspx ...

    (and yes, I've added s=1 to the query when calling)


    The Bing Maps support team said that they do not support bing api and cannot answer my question. They directed me to the forum - but I see no "bing api" category.


    Thank you,
