I have been using HCP API for some of my .Net applications. I have a common .Net library which does the HCP API calls for these apps. It works as expected. I recently had to use it for a .NetCore 2 in a application and the HCP API calls from this app failed with security error. Below is the sample code from the library that i have been using.


            var client = new HttpClient();





                new System.Net.Http.Headers.MediaTypeWithQualityHeaderValue(




                ".NET Foundation Repository Reporter");

            client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Add("Authorization", GetAuthorizationHeaderValue());

            client.Timeout = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(90);

            client.BaseAddress = new Uri("");

            ServicePointManager.ServerCertificateValidationCallback += (sender, cert, chain, sslPolicyErrors) => true;

            //SecurityProtocolType.Ssl3 has been removed from below line as it's obsolete

            ServicePointManager.SecurityProtocol = SecurityProtocolType.Tls | SecurityProtocolType.Tls11 | SecurityProtocolType.Tls12;

            ServicePointManager.DefaultConnectionLimit = 10;

            ServicePointManager.Expect100Continue = true;




                using (HttpResponseMessage res = await client.SendAsync(new HttpRequestMessage(

                    HttpMethod.Head, "/rest/"

                    ), HttpCompletionOption.ResponseHeadersRead).ConfigureAwait(false))


                    if (res != null && res.IsSuccessStatusCode)






            catch (Exception ex)


                throw ex;



Error message: An error occurred while sending the request. Innerexception message: A security error occurred. StackTrace: at System.Runtime.ExceptionServices.ExceptionDispatchInfo.Throw() at System.Threading.Tasks.RendezvousAwaitable`1.GetResult() at System.Net.Http.WinHttpHandler.d__105.MoveNext()


Please suggest what changes has to be done for it to work for .NetCore Apps or a link on this would be great.
