Streaming API on Android Peer Certificate Exception




I am attempting to create an Android application that will use the Twitter Streaming API. I want to make it clear that I don’t want to use an external library. With that being said here is the code I currently have:

    HttpClient streamClient = null;


        streamClient = new DefaultHttpClient();

        HostnameVerifier verifier = org.apache.http.conn.ssl.SSLSocketFactory.STRICT_HOSTNAME_VERIFIER;

        SchemeRegistry registry = new SchemeRegistry();
        org.apache.http.conn.ssl.SSLSocketFactory socketFactory = org.apache.http.conn.ssl.SSLSocketFactory.getSocketFactory();
        registry.register(new Scheme("https", socketFactory, 443));
        SingleClientConnManager cm = new SingleClientConnManager(streamClient.getParams(), registry);

        HttpClient defaultHttpClient = new DefaultHttpClient(cm, streamClient.getParams());

        HttpGet request = new HttpGet("");

        request.setHeader("User-Agent", "My App v 1.0");
        request.setHeader("Accept", "*/*");
        request.setHeader("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");

        String consumerKey = "***";
        String consumerSecret = "***";

        String accessToken = "***";
        String accessTokenSecret = "***";

        oauth.signpost.OAuthConsumer consumer = new CommonsHttpOAuthConsumer(consumerKey, consumerSecret);
        consumer.setTokenWithSecret(accessToken, accessTokenSecret);


        HttpResponse response = defaultHttpClient.execute(request);
        Scanner in = new Scanner(response.getEntity().getContent());
        String str = "";

        while (in.hasNext()){
            str += in.nextLine() + "\n";

        System.out.println("JSON data: " + str);


    catch (Exception ex){
        System.out.println("Error: " + ex.getMessage());

I want to make it clear that all my secrets and token values are correct.

With that being said, when I run my code, I get the error/exception “No peer certificate”. How can I fix this?
