Summary0003019: Unable to proxy https traffic through OWASP ZAP 2.4.3
DescriptionOn start up ZAP reports an error and fails to create a dynamic SSL certificate.
This means that its not possible to proxy https traffic through ZAP :(
It looks like its the same as this issue, which was fixed in the ZAP build route some time ago (will before 2.4.3):
We're doing some more digging to find out exactly whats causing the problem, but we dont see it in ZAP 2.4.3 _except_ when using the kali version.
Steps To ReproduceStart ZAP.
Try to proxy https traffic through ZAP, is will fail.
Look in the zap.log file - there will probably be an exception like the one reported in
The ZAP Dynamic SSL Certificates option page will not be present in the ZAP GUI.

The issue is caused by the changes done to the libraries (in "lib" dir), more specifically to the signed libraries "bcpkix-jdk15on-152.jar" and "bcprov-jdk15on-152.jar".

Looks like another case of

Pre-compiled jar should be avoided... it would be better if we could build the jar from sources or use properly packaged dependencies. In the mean time we will update the package to disable dh_strip_nondeterminism.

That's the first we've heard about any requirements like that ;)
We maintain our own build route, and have not been consulted at all regarding the way you build ZAP.
That's fine, but we then cant make any sort of guarantees that you wont hit problems like this.
Can you point at us the relevant steps you use to build ZAP?

psiinon, in fact we currently package the binary jars that you provide and it's one of the automatic Debian tools that screwed the jar you provided.

If you know a bit about Debian packaging, our git repository is here:

In the future, we will see whether we manage to build zaproxy from sources instead. We have not investigated this yet.
