Cordova whitelist iOS 10 SSL error: Failed to load resource: An SSL error has occurred and a secure connection to the server cannot be made

I am trying to send an ArrayBuffer to

https://1511921174.cloud.vimeo.com/upload?ticket_id=xxxxxxxxxx&video_file_id=xxxxxx&signature=xxxxxxxx=1%22

In iOS 10 nothing is happening. There must me a whitelisting error. I am whitelisting *.vimeo.com and *.cloud.vimeo.com per the cordova-plugin-whitelist docs. Everything works fine in iOS 9 and on Android.

<access origin="http://*.vimeo.com" subdomains="true" />
<access origin="https://*.vimeo.com" subdomains="true" />
<access origin="http://*.cloud.vimeo.com" subdomains="true" />
<access origin="https://*.cloud.vimeo.com" subdomains="true" />


Any ideas what could be happening?
Thanks!

Answer

It looks like this isn't a whitelist but an App Transport Security issue.

I got the videos to upload to Vimeo using iOS 10. It looks like there may be a problem with Vimeo's SSL certificate. They may use an old TLS version. When I turned off the App Transport Security in the plist it just worked:

<key>NSAppTransportSecurity</key>
<dict>
  <key>NSAllowsArbitraryLoads</key>
  <true/>
</dict>

So without turning everything off I ended up adding the code below in the plist for vimeo.com only:

<key>NSAppTransportSecurity</key>
<dict>
    <key>NSExceptionDomains</key>
    <dict>
        <key>vimeo.com</key>
        <dict>
            <key>NSExceptionAllowsInsecureHTTPLoads</key>
            <true/>
            <key>NSThirdPartyExceptionAllowsInsecureHTTPLoads</key>
            <true/>
            <key>NSExceptionRequiresForwardSecrecy</key>
            <false/>
            <key>NSThirdPartyExceptionRequiresForwardSecrecy</key>
            <false/>
            <key>NSIncludesSubdomains</key>
            <true/>
            <key>NSExceptionMinimumTLSVersion</key>
            <string>TLSv1.0</string>
            <key>NSRequiresCertificateTransparency</key>
            <false/>
        </dict>
    </dict>
</dict>

I hope that helps anyone out there.
