libcloud_logoApache Libcloud is a standard Python library that abstracts away differences among multiple cloud provider API. While using libcloud, this is a fairly common issue for beginners especially while using MacOS. This error usually occurs when the program is trying to get the storage driver (through libcloud.storage.providers.get_driver().storage_driver()) using the cloud access credentials, namely the ACCESS_KEY and ACCESS_SECRET.

This occurs because of an improper system setup. A very simple hack around this is to include the following in your code:

import libcloud.security
libcloud.security.VERIFY_SSL_CERT = False
