[jira] [Created] (NUTCH-2648) Make configurable whether TLS/SSL certificates are checked by protocol plugins

JIRA jira@apache.org
Sebastian Nagel created NUTCH-2648:
--------------------------------------

             Summary: Make configurable whether TLS/SSL certificates are checked by protocol plugins
                 Key: NUTCH-2648
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NUTCH-2648
             Project: Nutch
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Sebastian Nagel


(see discussion in NUTCH-2630)

It should be possible to enable/disable TLS/SSL certificate validation centrally for all http/https protocol plugins by a single configuration property.

Some use cases (eg. crawl a site to detect insecure pages) may require that TLS/SSL certificates are checked. Also a broader, unrestricted web crawl may skip sites with invalid certificates as this is can be an indicator for the quality of a site.
