profile.pictureUrl returns http when called through https

I'm using the linkedin api through Javascript over a secure connection. I'm loading https://platform.linkedin.com/in.js and retrieve some information about the current user to pre-fill a form. One of these is the profile.pitureUrl. But this returns an insecure link to http://media.linkedin.com/.
I tried to change it to https, but there doesn't seem to be an SSL installed for that subdomain.

Is there any way to retrieve the user's profile picture over a secure connection?

We're working on this, but it's not yet available.
