Javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: javax.net.ssl.SSLProtocolException: SSL handshake aborted: Failure in SSL library, usually a protocol error

I am trying to run the following code in android

URLConnection l_connection = null;
// Create connection
uzip=new UnZipData(mContext);
l_url = new URL(serverurl);

if ("https".equals(l_url.getProtocol())) {
System.out.println("<<<<<<<<<<<<< Before TLS >>>>>>>>>>>>");
sslcontext = SSLContext.getInstance("TLS");
System.out.println("<<<<<<<<<<<<< After TLS >>>>>>>>>>>>");
sslcontext.init(null,
new TrustManager[] { new CustomTrustManager()},
new java.security.SecureRandom());
HttpsURLConnection
.setDefaultHostnameVerifier(new CustomHostnameVerifier());
HttpsURLConnection.setDefaultSSLSocketFactory(sslcontext
.getSocketFactory());

l_connection = (HttpsURLConnection) l_url.openConnection();
((HttpsURLConnection) l_connection).setRequestMethod("POST");
} else {
l_connection = (HttpURLConnection) l_url.openConnection();
((HttpURLConnection) l_connection).setRequestMethod("POST");
}
/*System.setProperty("http.agent", "Android_Phone");*/


l_connection.setConnectTimeout(10000);
l_connection.setRequestProperty("Content-Language", "en-US");
l_connection.setUseCaches(false);
l_connection.setDoInput(true);
l_connection.setDoOutput(true);
System.out.println("<<<<<<<<<<<<< Before Connection >>>>>>>>>>>>");
l_connection.connect();


On
l_connection.connect()
, it is giving this SSLhandshakeException. Sometimes it works, but most of the time it gives the exception. It is only happening on Android 4.0 emulator. I tested it on Android 4.4 and 5.0, it works fine. What could be the cause of this ? Please help

Answer

I found the solution for it by analyzing the data packets using wireshark. What I found is that while making a secure connection, android was falling back to SSLv3 from TLSv1 . It is a bug in android versions < 4.4 , and it can be solved by removing the SSLv3 protocol from Enabled Protocols list. I made a custom socketFactory class called NoSSLv3SocketFactory.java. Use this to make a socketfactory.

Use this class like this while connecting :

SSLContext sslcontext = SSLContext.getInstance("TLSv1");

            sslcontext.init(null,
                    null,
                    null);
            SSLSocketFactory NoSSLv3Factory = new NoSSLv3SocketFactory(sslcontext.getSocketFactory());

            HttpsURLConnection.setDefaultSSLSocketFactory(NoSSLv3Factory);
            l_connection = (HttpsURLConnection) l_url.openConnection();
            l_connection.connect();
