I have the following *very* simple web viewer.  I need it to show just a single internal site, however that site has a self-signed certificate which causes it not to load.  I know there's a way to use ignoreSslErrors with QNetworkManager, but I have been killing myself and cant figure out how to code it with what I have below.  Please help :P
import sys

from PyQt4.QtCore import *

from PyQt4.QtGui import *

from PyQt4.QtWebKit import *

from PyQt4 import QtGui

 

app = QApplication(sys.argv)

 

web = QWebView()

 

web.setWindowTitle("title")

screen = QtGui.QDesktopWidget().screenGeometry()

web.resize(screen.width()-10, screen.height()-60)

size = web.geometry()

web.move((screen.width()-8-size.width())/2, (screen.height()-60-size.height())/2)

web.load(QUrl("https://site-with-self-signed-certificate.com/"))

web.show()

 

sys.exit(app.exec_())

Open in new window

Properly, you should have a ca_certs file that contains the root certificate you need.

Here is a general code-example:

It is a bad idea to not have a trusted roots file.  I understand it is just one page you are going to, but you do need to trust that you are actually talking to the server you think you are instead of a hacker misdirected site that looks the same.  Security should never be an afterthought.
