Plugins.gradle.org / javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: PKIX path building failed: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

Hi,

At least since September 16th, 10:00 UTC, there are constant outage when getting plugins from plugins.gradle.org:

javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

Is it already known? This is of course blocking some builds to run correctly.

If this is due to some maintenance going on, is there a status page anywhere?

Thanks for any support,
Damien.

I’ve switched from JDK 8u151 to 8u181, and the problem has disappeared. So most likely an issue with the certificates, but the ones embedded in the JDK…

This fixes the issue for me.
