LlRequestSecureURL

Summary

Function: key llRequestSecureURL( );

Requests one HTTPS:// (SSL) url for use by this object. The http_request event is tiggered with result of the request. HTTPS-in uses port 12043.
Returns a handle (a key) used for identifying the result of the request in the http_request event.

Caveats

  • HTTPS-in uses port 12043 (that port is in the URL returned by this method).
  • When a region is (re)started all HTTP server URLs are automatically released and invalidated.
  • The server certificate is signed by our own Linden Lab Certificate Authority. In order for your client to validate the server certificate, you will need to download and install our CA certificate and add it to the CA store on your system: you can download it from https://bitbucket.org/lindenlab/llca/raw/master/LindenLab.crt

KBcaution.png Important: Never ever forget to release a URL again which you have requested! URLs are region resources just like prims. If you take them all you can get into big trouble with the sim owner and/or estate managers.
