I'm using Python 2.7.3 and Requests. I installed Requests via pip. I believe it's the latest version. I'm running on Debian Wheezy.

I've used Requests lots of times in the past and never faced this issue, but it seems that when making https requests with Requests I get an InsecurePlatform exception.

The error mentions urllib3, but I don't have that installed. I did install it to check if it resolved the error, but it didn't.

/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/requests/packages/urllib3 /util/ssl_.py:79: InsecurePlatformWarning: A true SSLContext object is not 

available. This prevents urllib3 from configuring SSL appropriately and may cause certain SSL connections to fail. For more information, see 

https://urllib3.readthedocs.org/en/latest /security.html#insecureplatformwarning.

Any ideas as to why I'm getting this? I've checked the docs, as specified in the error message, but the docs are saying to import urllib3 and either disable the warning or provide a certificate.

Assuming you can't upgrade to a newer version of python, this will install more up-to-date python SSL libraries:

pip install --upgrade ndg-httpsclient

Requests 2.6 introduced this warning for users of python prior to 2.7.9 with only stock SSL modules available.

Assuming you can’t upgrade to a newer version of python, this will install more up-to-date python SSL libraries:

pip install --upgrade ndg-httpsclient
