At work we use Cloudflare WARP with HTTPS interception. This means there is a Cloudflare root CA installed on our machines and all traffic is filtered by them. This is from the Cloudflare Teams service, not the Cloudflare Infrastructure/CDN that everyone is used to dealing with.
When the WARP client is turned on, so all HTTPS traffic is being monitored, Inkdrop does not sync. If you force a sync, it goes to “Syncing…” then “Synced at XXXXXX” time. From the UI it looks like everything is fine, except the system is NOT synchronizing any notes. So it’s a silent failure. The only way to figure out this is happening was to update notes on another machine and then fail to see changes sync between the two.
Turning off the WARP client “solves” the problem. Additionally, as an admin of Cloudflare Teams I’ve verified that turning off HTTPS inspection for inkdrop.app also resolved the issue. I assume the Inkdrop app is using HTTP Key Pinning of some sort.
To be clear: I’m not complaining that the application doesn’t work in this HTTPS-Intercept environment. Simply that the failure is silent, that is a “bug”.
- Platform: macOS
- Platform version: 11.3
- App Version: 5.2.1
- Turn on any tool that does an https MITM (Charles Proxy should work)
- Attempt to sync
- Check another client to verify sync did not actually occur.
