SSL support for MQTT on ESP8266



  • @hek @Anticimex First install https://github.com/esp8266/arduino-esp8266fs-plugin and upload the crt file to the ESP8266 file system.

    then issue these command from the folder in which MySensors is installed:
    sed -i 's/WiFiClient/WiFiClientSecure/g' Arduino/libraries/MySensors/core/MyGatewayTransportEthernet.cpp

    sed -i 's/WiFiClient/WiFiClientSecure/g' Arduino/libraries/MySensors/core/MyGatewayTransportMQTTClient.cpp

    change your GatewayESP8266MQTTClient to this:

     * 
     * DESCRIPTION
     * The ESP8266 MQTT gateway sends radio network (or locally attached sensors) data to your MQTT broker.
     * The node also listens to MY_MQTT_TOPIC_PREFIX and sends out those messages to the radio network
     *
     * LED purposes:
     * - To use the feature, uncomment WITH_LEDS_BLINKING in MyConfig.h
     * - RX (green) - blink fast on radio message recieved. In inclusion mode will blink fast only on presentation recieved
     * - TX (yellow) - blink fast on radio message transmitted. In inclusion mode will blink slowly
     * - ERR (red) - fast blink on error during transmission error or recieve crc error  
     *

    I have no esp hw. And like I said, ssl and MQTT is specific to a certain architecture (from a gw and controller perspective) so I don't want it being mixed in with the existing security infrastructure that goes on every node.
    You are free to implement it as such of course, but I won't bring it into the signing solution.


  • Admin

    @Anticimex
    This has nothing to do with the message signing.

    @noelgeorgi
    Good!. Might be good to put this initialization in the optional before()-method instead of setup(), which runs before any other MySensors stuff.



  • @hek I didnt know there was an optional method. Thanks


  • Contest Winner

    @hek i know that perfectly well, but since I am adressed, I just want to make clear I do not consider myself involved 🙂



  • @hek pubsubclient has issues with ssl connection, frequent disconnections. Adafruit's MQTT library works like charm, trying to integrate into MySensors



  • @hek I somewhat succesfully integrated Adafruit MQTT library into MySensors, i am able to sent out data but not able to receive (subscribe). These are the changes i made:

    Any help would be really appreciated???


  • Admin

    Isn't incomingMQTT() ever called?

    You seem to have commented away this line:
    //_client.setCallback(incomingMQTT);



  • @hek i am trying to do that in void loop{} will update once it gets working properly and will do a pull request, the problem is that i can subscribe to a main topic but not its subfeeds



  • @hek Adafruit's MQTT libarary doesnt have wildcard subscriptions switching to https://github.com/256dpi/arduino-mqtt SSL seems to be working and library has callback support



  • @noelgeorgi so do you have a working code already? It would be great to try it out.

    Also looking at this... was this ever implemented? And where your trials on server encryption or also in client authentication?

    Thank You
