Net::HTTPS - Low-level HTTP over SSL/TLS connection (client) DESCRIPTION
The "Net::HTTPS" is a low-level HTTP over SSL/TLS client. The interface is the same as the interface for "Net::HTTP", but the constructor method take additional parameters as accepted by IO::Socket::SSL. The "Net::HTTPS" object isa "IO::Socket::SSL" too, which make it inherit additional methods from that base class. For historical reasons this module also supports using "Net::SSL" (from the Crypt-SSLeay distribution) as its SSL driver and base class. This base is automatically selected if available and "IO::Socket::SSL" isn't. You might also force which implementation to use by setting $Net::HTTPS::SSL_SOCKET_CLASS before loading this module. If not set this variable is initialized from the "PERL_NET_HTTPS_SSL_SOCKET_CLASS" environment variable. ENVIRONMENT
You might set the "PERL_NET_HTTPS_SSL_SOCKET_CLASS" environment variable to the name of the base SSL implementation (and Net::HTTPS base class) to use. The default is "IO::Socket::SSL". Currently the only other supported value is "Net::SSL". SEE ALSO

Net::SSLGlue::LWP - proper certificate checking for https in LWP SYNOPSIS
use Net::SSLGlue::LWP SSL_ca_path => ...; use LWP::Simple; get( 'https://www....' ); { local %Net::SSLGlue::LWP::SSLopts = %Net::SSLGlue::LWP::SSLopts; # switch off verification $Net::SSLGlue::LWP::SSLopts{SSL_verify_mode} = 0; # or: set different verification policy, because cert does # not conform to RFC (wildcards in CN are not allowed for https, # but some servers do it anyway) $Net::SSLGlue::LWP::SSLopts{SSL_verifycn_scheme} = { wildcards_in_cn => 'anywhere', check_cn => 'always', }; } DESCRIPTION
Net::SSLGlue::LWP modifies Net::HTTPS and LWP::Protocol::https so that Net::HTTPS is forced to use IO::Socket::SSL instead of Crypt::SSLeay, and that LWP::Protocol::https does proper certificate checking using the "http" SSL_verify_scheme from IO::Socket::SSL. Because LWP does not have a mechanism to forward arbitrary parameters for the construction of the underlying socket these parameters can be set globally when including the package, or with local settings of the %Net::SSLGlue::LWP::SSLopts variable. All of the "SSL_*" parameter from IO::Socket::SSL can be used; the following parameters are especially useful: SSL_ca_path, SSL_ca_file Specifies the path or a file where the CAs used for checking the certificates are located. This is typically "etc/ssl/certs" on UNIX systems. SSL_verify_mode If set to 0, verification of the certificate will be disabled. By default it is set to 1 which means that the peer certificate is checked. SSL_verifycn_name Usually the name given as the hostname in the constructor is used to verify the identity of the certificate. If you want to check the certificate against another name you can specify it with this parameter. SEE ALSO
