Here is how to handle SSL handshake error in android with Okhttp. This tutorial includes links from android developer site and the details information given at https://developer.android.com/training/articles/security-ssl.html

If you got this kind of error while network operation then this demo will help you to save your time :

javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: java.security.cert.CertPathValidatorException: Trust anchor for certification path not found.
        at org.apache.harmony.xnet.provider.jsse.OpenSSLSocketImpl.startHandshake(OpenSSLSocketImpl.java:374)
        at libcore.net.http.HttpConnection.setupSecureSocket(HttpConnection.java:209)
        at libcore.net.http.HttpsURLConnectionImpl$HttpsEngine.makeSslConnection(HttpsURLConnectionImpl.java:478)
        at libcore.net.http.HttpsURLConnectionImpl$HttpsEngine.connect(HttpsURLConnectionImpl.java:433)
        at libcore.net.http.HttpEngine.sendSocketRequest(HttpEngine.java:290)
        at libcore.net.http.HttpEngine.sendRequest(HttpEngine.java:240)
        at libcore.net.http.HttpURLConnectionImpl.getResponse(HttpURLConnectionImpl.java:282)
        at libcore.net.http.HttpURLConnectionImpl.getInputStream(HttpURLConnectionImpl.java:177)
        at libcore.net.http.HttpsURLConnectionImpl.getInputStream(HttpsURLConnectionImpl.java:271)

This can happen for several reasons, including:

  1. The CA that issued the server certificate was unknown
  2. The server certificate wasn’t signed by a CA, but was self signed
  3. The server configuration is missing an intermediate CA

 I was suffering from similar issue and how I have solved this is displays below :
Note : if you are not familiar with OKHttp then first know how to use Okhttp from http://square.github.io/okhttp/ or you can find out detailed sample from https://github.com/square/okhttp

Whenever you need new httpClient for network related stuff just call this method :

 
public static OkHttpClient getHttpClientForFile() {
        ConnectionSpec spec = new ConnectionSpec.Builder(ConnectionSpec.MODERN_TLS)
                .tlsVersions(TlsVersion.TLS_1_0)
                .cipherSuites(
                        CipherSuite.TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,
                        CipherSuite.TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,
                        CipherSuite.TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,
                        CipherSuite.TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA,
                        CipherSuite.TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA,
                        CipherSuite.TLS_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA)
                .build();
        return new OkHttpClient.Builder()
                .connectTimeout(2, TimeUnit.MINUTES)
                .writeTimeout(2, TimeUnit.MINUTES)
                .readTimeout(3, TimeUnit.MINUTES)
                .connectionSpecs(Collections.singletonList(spec))
                .protocols(Arrays.asList(Protocol.HTTP_1_1))
                .build();
    }
 

This will help to remove SSL handshake error.
