iOS Question

The resource could not be loaded because the App Transport Security policy requires the use of a secure connection

I am facing the Problem when I have updated my Xcode to 7.0 or iOS 9.0.
Somehow it started giving me the Titled error


"The resource could not be loaded because the App Transport Security
policy requires the use of a secure connection"


Webservice Method:

-(void)ServiceCall:(NSString*)ServiceName :(NSString *)DataString
{
NSURLSessionConfiguration *sessionConfiguration = [NSURLSessionConfiguration defaultSessionConfiguration];
[sessionConfiguration setAllowsCellularAccess:YES];
[sessionConfiguration setHTTPAdditionalHeaders:@{ @"Accept" : @"application/json" }];
NSURLSession *session = [NSURLSession sessionWithConfiguration:sessionConfiguration];

NSURL *url = [NSURL URLWithString:[NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",ServiceURL]];
NSLog(@"URl %@%@",url,DataString);
// Configure the Request
NSMutableURLRequest *request = [NSMutableURLRequest requestWithURL:url];
[request setValue:[NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@=%@", strSessName, strSessVal] forHTTPHeaderField:@"Cookie"];
request.HTTPBody = [DataString dataUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding];
request.HTTPMethod = @"Post";

// post the request and handle response
NSURLSessionDataTask *postDataTask = [session dataTaskWithRequest:request completionHandler:^(NSData *data, NSURLResponse *response, NSError *error)
{
// Handle the Response
if(error)
{
NSLog(@"%@",[NSString stringWithFormat:@"Connection failed: %@", [error description]]);

// Update the View
dispatch_async(dispatch_get_main_queue(), ^{

// Hide the Loader
[MBProgressHUD hideHUDForView:[[UIApplication sharedApplication] delegate].window animated:YES];


});
return;
}
NSArray * cookies = [[NSHTTPCookieStorage sharedHTTPCookieStorage] cookiesForURL:request.URL];
for (NSHTTPCookie * cookie in cookies)
{
NSLog(@"%@=%@", cookie.name, cookie.value);
strSessName=cookie.name;
strSessVal=cookie.value;

}

NSString *retVal = [[NSString alloc] initWithData:data encoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding];
}];
[postDataTask resume];

}


The service is Running fine for Xcode earlier versions and iOS previous versions But when I have updated to Xcode 7.0 that is on iOS 9.0, it started to give me the Problem like following when I am calling the above web service method. The Logged Error which I am getting is:


Connection failed: Error Domain=NSURLErrorDomain Code=-1022 "The
resource could not be loaded because the App Transport Security policy
requires the use of a secure connection."
UserInfo={NSUnderlyingError=0x7fada0f31880 {Error
Domain=kCFErrorDomainCFNetwork Code=-1022 "(null)"},
NSErrorFailingURLStringKey=MyServiceURL,
NSErrorFailingURLKey=MyServiceURL,
NSLocalizedDescription=The resource could not be loaded because the
App Transport Security policy requires the use of a secure
connection.}


I have tried Following Questions and answers but did not get any result there, is there any advance idea how I can remove that service call error?

Answer

I have solved it with adding some key in info.plist. The steps I followed are:

  1. Opened my Projects info.plist file

  2. Added a Key called NSAppTransportSecurity as a Dictionary.

  3. Added a Subkey called NSAllowsArbitraryLoads as Boolean and set its value to YES as like following image.

enter image description here

Clean the Project and Now Everything is Running fine as like before.

EDIT: OR In source code of info.plist file we can add that:

<key>NSAppTransportSecurity</key>
    <dict>
        <key>NSAllowsArbitraryLoads</key>
        <true/>
        <key>NSExceptionDomains</key>
        <dict>
            <key>yourdomain.com</key>
            <dict>
                <key>NSIncludesSubdomains</key>
                <true/>
                <key>NSThirdPartyExceptionRequiresForwardSecrecy</key>
                <false/>
            </dict>
       </dict>
  </dict>
