Like most security protocols HTTPS can start failing for all sorts of reasons, but issues with upgraded security seems to be most common.

Context

Issues

PowerShell Invoke-xxxMethod

$r = Invoke-RestMethod "https://trustregistry.us/csp" -Method Post -Body $j -ContentType "application/jose"
$r
The registry service https://localhost:5035/csp could not be found. Exception: The SSL connection could not be established, see inner exception.

or on AWS

$r = Invoke-RestMethod "http://localhost:5035/csp" -Method Post -Body $j -ContentType "application/jose"
Invoke-RestMethod : The underlying connection was closed: The connection was closed unexpectedly.
At line:1 char:6
+ $r = Invoke-RestMethod "http://localhost:5035/csp" -Method Post -Body ...
+      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (System.Net.HttpWebRequest:HttpWebRequest) [Invoke-RestMethod], WebException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : WebCmdletWebResponseException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.InvokeRestMethodCommand

One common cause for this issue is a mismatch in TLS levels between the client and server. In general all side should be (2020-07) set for tls1.1 or higher.

  • Check with powershell Get-TlsCipherSuite [[-Name] <String>] [<CommonParameters>]
