Cannot install DFINITY Canister SDK. Broken SSL certificate

I failed at the first step of installing a DFINITY Canister SDK. I have a brand new Mac with Homebrew and Node installed.

Impact: I am going to assume this will effect every new developer who tries to get started.

Thank you for this. I will escalate internally to see what may be going on.

@chrisaiv for debugging, do you have an M1 or Intel MacBook? (not that its relevant to SSL certs, but just for completion)

Intel. I don’t think it shouldn’t matter because it’s an expired SSL cert.

Would you please report the output of uname -r and curl --version ?




curl 7.54.0 (x86_64-apple-darwin18.0) libcurl/7.54.0 LibreSSL/2.6.5 zlib/1.2.11 nghttp2/1.24.1

I found a way to make it work. I re-installed curl via Homebrew.

brew install curl
