Refer to the exhibit. A student is learning network automation with Python and REST API. The student constructs a small Python script to get information from a local network device. The device is a sandbox located inside the college lab and it is using a self-signed SSL certificate. Which parameter is needed in the Python code (in place of the question mark) to skip the SSL verification?
- verify = True
- verify = False
- verify = NO
- verify = YES
Explanation: When the protocol used within the URI is HTTPS, the connection will perform an SSL handshake between the client and the server for secure authentication. This handshake needs to be successful before the REST API request is even sent to the API server. However, because the SSL is self-signed, it would not pass the SSL verification with a CA. In the case of learning and practicing on a local resource, the SSL verification can be turned off by the “verify = False” parameter.
