HTTPS request

P: n/a
If I need to log in to a site using https protocol must I use
certification file and key file?
The class HTTPSConnection syntax is
class HTTPSConnection( host[, port, key_file, cert_file])

and I do not know if it is nescessary or not.
Thanks for help.

Depends on what the server requires. You can do basic authenticate to a https:
site if it supports it.

Hello Larry,
Thanks for your reply.
I had to register on this site, so I have Login and Password.
I can log in to the site through normal process on the server(by
filling in the login form).
But I can not login to the site from my Python program.
I use the same procedure as I do for other webservers that require
login information. The only difference is that the server, this time,
is HTTPS server.
So I do not know if I must use a SSL certificate or not and if I can
use HTTP 1.0 or I must use HTTP 1.1 protocol.
Any idea?
Thanks
L.
