"not secure" error with neo4j AMI


(Socratic) #1

I used Neo4j Graph Database - Community Edition from the Amazon Marketplace to set up an AMI. When I access it in my browser, I get an error message that the connection is not secure. The Chrome browser says "Your connection is not private", due to NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID
How do I fix this?

This occurs because you don't have a valid SSL certificate associated with the server. Because your SSL certificate is not signed by a certificate authority, you get this warning in your browser.

You can fix it by getting certificates. Here's a walkthrough on how to do that:

For cloud deploys, we have the constraint that we have to start with an encrypted channel, you wouldn't' want to pass your username/password in the clear. But without knowing your local DNS configuration, the cloud image can't do the certificate bits for you. You can either use Neo4j on port 7474 (unencrypted) or you can get a certificate, either approach will fix this issue.
