How about handling requests with ssl ?. Because in java we used to create Trust Certificate for handling the repsonse

Chris Bailey RP Team on April 6, 2020

Hi @Ganesh Pai, Requests by default uses SSL. There is a method to turn verification off, which is covered in the previous video lesson “SSL Certificate Verification”. Here is a link to the Request Docs with more information regarding using SSL and how it is on by default. Requests uses a package called Certifi that will be installed when using pip, but may be a good practice to look for updates as certificates and such change. I hope this helps with what you are looking for.
