Too Long; Didn't Read
Python requests module uses the requests module to secure an API call using the server’s certificate. I was really stuck at a point and learning what I did to fix that issue was great and led me to create a post on deep dive with SSL certificates. The problem and all the similar certificate related issues (in any langugae not only python) on the internet requires a clean and clear understanding of the certificate chain. As we are manually specifying by specifying which file to use, the module will not use the already existing CA bundle, rather use the server certificate.
