Working with Python Requests and Ignoring SSL Certificate Validation

If you are using Python Requests module to make HTTP requests, you might encounter SSL certificate validation errors. Sometimes, the SSL certificate of the website you are trying to access might not be valid or not trusted by your system's certificate store. In such cases, Python Requests module raises SSL certificate verification errors. If you want to ignore these SSL errors and continue with the request anyway, you can use the verify parameter of the requests.get() method.

Ignoring SSL Errors with Requests.get() Method

You can pass verify=False to the requests.get() method to ignore SSL errors. This is not recommended in production environments, as it can expose your application to security vulnerabilities. However, it can be useful for testing and debugging purposes.

    import requests
    response = requests.get('', verify=False)

Ignoring SSL Errors Globally

If you want to ignore SSL errors globally for all requests made using the Requests module, you can set the VERIFY attribute of the requests.Session() class to False.

    import requests
    session = requests.Session()
    session.verify = False
    response = session.get('')

Using Custom CA Certificates

If you have a custom CA certificate that you want to use for SSL validation, you can pass the path of the CA certificate file to the verify parameter of the requests.get() or requests.Session() method.

    import requests
    response = requests.get('', verify='/path/to/ca_certificate.pem')
