Hi,

The issue appears to be caused by the Extended Master Secret Key extension (https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7627) being negotiated between the client and the server. Stream currently doesn't support this extension, so the workaround would be to turn it off on the server side.

Thanks.

Hi @ekremikizoglu,

This is a rather rare error - it basically indicates a symmetric decryption failure. Do you happen to know what TLS version/cipher suite is been negotiated? (you can use Stream to track it by capturing tcp traffic and enabling ssl_cipher_name and/or ssl_cipher_id fields)

Hi,

I generated this certificate on iis server ,Self signed TLS1.2 RSA AES256GCM, for testing decription feature of stream app. I published website and enable ssl communication. Then i installed splunk to capture https traffic. But i got the error.
