CertPathValidatorException

public class CertPathValidatorException extends GeneralSecurityException

An exception indicating one of a variety of problems encountered when validating a certification path.

A CertPathValidatorException provides support for wrapping exceptions. The getCause method returns the throwable, if any, that caused this exception to be thrown.

A CertPathValidatorException may also include the certification path that was being validated when the exception was thrown, the index of the certificate in the certification path that caused the exception to be thrown, and the reason that caused the failure. Use the getCertPath, getIndex, and getReason methods to retrieve this information.
