I'm trying to get Squid3.4 to do SSL Bumping with the server-first method. I followed this guide in alpinelinux.

I'm working in explicit mode (browser configurer to Go to the proxy) and that works well. I generate my Key, my CSR as well, rebuilded squid3 with --enable-sel and --enable-sel-crtd options and when I got back my certificate (I choosed a test one, valide for 1 month to do the POC) from COMODDO, I places it in my squid config.

Then I got the following error:

Dec 08 08:15:12 proxy squid3[2166]: No valid signing SSL certificate configured for http_port                                                     
Dec 08 08:15:12 proxy squid3[2136]: Starting Squid HTTP Proxy 3.x: squid3FATAL: No valid signing SSL certificate configured for http_port     

Here My squid3 config

Any idea what I'm doing wrong ?

Thx for tour help and admises :)


In order to do the SSL Bump you must be using a self signed root certificate file. The one you mentioned from Comodo will never work.

SSL Bump does Man-In-The-Middle attack on the HTTPS connections when Squid contacts remote HTTPS server on your behalf and then mimics secure connection by faking the remote site certificate and signing it with the configured self sign root key. You also must install this self signed root certificate as trusted in all your browsers.

Steps to generate correct certificate are described at http://docs.diladele.com/administrator_guide_4_0/system_configuration/https_filtering/generate_certificates.html
