LWP::Protocol::https(3)        User Contributed Perl Documentation	  LWP::Protocol::https(3)

NAME
       LWP::Protocol::https - Provide https support for LWP::UserAgent

SYNOPSIS
	 use LWP::UserAgent;

	 $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new(ssl_opts => { verify_hostname => 1 });
	 $res = $ua->get("https://www.example.com");

DESCRIPTION
       The LWP::Protocol::https module provides support for using https schemed URLs with LWP.
       This module is a plug-in to the LWP protocol handling, so you don't use it directly.  Once
       the module is installed LWP is able to access sites using HTTP over SSL/TLS.

       If hostname verification is requested by LWP::UserAgent's "ssl_opts", and neither
       "SSL_ca_file" nor "SSL_ca_path" is set, then "SSL_ca_file" is implied to be the one
       provided by Mozilla::CA.  If the Mozilla::CA module isn't available SSL requests will
       fail.  Either install this module, set up an alternative "SSL_ca_file" or disable hostname
       verification.

       This module used to be bundled with the libwww-perl, but it was unbundled in v6.02 in
       order to be able to declare its dependencies properly for the CPAN tool-chain.
       Applications that need https support can just declare their dependency on
       LWP::Protocol::https and will no longer need to know what underlying modules to install.
