SSL HowTo?

I'm trying to add SSL support to my Echo skill with little success. The basic problem is that I don't know much about SSL

Here is the relevant code snippit:

        try {
            URL url = new URL(protocol, host, port, line);
  "sendMsg: Sending <"+url+">");

            HttpURLConnection httpConnection = null;
            HttpsURLConnection httpsConnection = null;
            // Open the connection.
            if (isSsl) {
            	HostnameVerifier hostnameVerifier = new HostnameVerifier() {
            		public boolean verify(String hostname, SSLSession session) {
            			return true;
                httpsConnection = (HttpsURLConnection)url.openConnection();
                httpsConnection.setRequestProperty("Content-Type", "application/json");
            } else {
                httpConnection = (HttpURLConnection)url.openConnection();
            // Set the password.
            if (user != null && password != null) {
                String encodedBytes = DatatypeConverter.printBase64Binary((user + ":" + password).getBytes(StandardCharsets.UTF_8));   
                if (isSsl) 
                	httpsConnection.setRequestProperty("Authorization", "Basic " + encodedBytes);
                	httpConnection.setRequestProperty("Authorization", "Basic " + encodedBytes);
One of the Echo users has graciously let me run tests on his SSL connection and I am getting this error:

Exception: PKIX path building failed: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

I think it may have to do with the certificate being self-signed (not issued by a trusted certificate authority). This information is old, but should be relevant.
SageTV v9 Server: ASRock Z97 Extreme4, Intel i7-4790K @ 4.4Ghz, 32GB RAM, 8x 3TB 7200rpm HD, 2x 5TB 7200rpm HD, 4x 256GB SSD, 4x 500GB SSD, unRAID Pro 6.3.0-rc6 (Dual Parity + SDD Cache).
Capture: 1x Ceton InfiniTV 4 (ClearQAM), 2x Ceton InfiniTV 6, 1x BM1000-HDMI, 1x BM3500-HDMI.

Clients: 1x HD300 (Living Room), 1x HD200 (Master Bedroom).
Software: OpenDCT :: WMC Live TV Tuner

EnterNoEscape is right about the cause. I sent you a PM with some SSL background and a trust chain you may use if you're using my server as a test. (Let's Encrypt Authority X1 is the issuer.)

I did this with my skill for ssl:
input = input.replace(/\s+/g, '-');

var https = require( 'https' );
var options = {
host: ipAddress,
port: port,
auth: authString,
path: basePath + 'Watch&1=' + input + '&2=' + extender + '&encoder=json',
rejectUnauthorized: false,
requestCert: true,
agent: false

var request = https.get( options, function( response ) {
