Android development: No peer certificate

I am tinkering with android development and am trying to make a call to authenticate with the LDS tools API.

When I make the call to sign in (https://signin.lds.org/login.html) I get a no peer certificate exception.

Some researching on the web says this has more to do with the server than with the code, has anyone else had any issues?

Please note that the API is only for programs authorized by the church.

Yes, is that why I can't access it?

Long story short, I am experimenting with functionality to make contact information available to the android contacts service to make it easier to send texts/call people without going through LDS tools. I am just wanting to proof of concept the idea before suggesting it to either be added to LDS tools or a separate church approved app.

I can stop tinkering... If I shouldn't be.

Probably. I'm not involved in LDS Tools development but I expect there is a certificate that is built into LDS Tools when the official build is made that is needed in order to access the services. At least that's what I'd do to secure the services to only official apps.

If you're interested in this going into LDS Tools then I'd suggest you join the LDS Tools project and discuss it with the existing developers. I think that there is probably a test version of the services that is used for development and testing of LDS Tools. If they think it might be something that could be added then you might be able to get access to the test service and do your experimentation that way.
