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::Server::Proto::SSL - Net::Server SSL protocol. SYNOPSIS
Until this release, it was preferrable to use the Net::Server::Proto::SSLEAY module. Recent versions include code that overcomes original limitations. See Net::Server::Proto. See Net::Server::Proto::SSLEAY. use base qw(Net::Server::HTTP); main->run( proto => 'ssl', SSL_key_file => "/path/to/my/file.key", SSL_cert_file => "/path/to/my/file.crt", ); # OR sub SSL_key_file { "/path/to/my/file.key" } sub SSL_cert_file { "/path/to/my/file.crt" } main->run(proto = 'ssl'); # OR main->run( port => [443, 8443, "80/tcp"], # bind to two ssl ports and one tcp proto => "ssl", # use ssl as the default ipv => "*", # bind both IPv4 and IPv6 interfaces SSL_key_file => "/path/to/my/file.key", SSL_cert_file => "/path/to/my/file.crt", ); # OR main->run(port => [{ port => "443", proto => "ssl", # ipv => 4, # default - only do IPv4 SSL_key_file => "/path/to/my/file.key", SSL_cert_file => "/path/to/my/file.crt", }, { port => "8443", proto => "ssl", ipv => "*", # IPv4 and IPv6 SSL_key_file => "/path/to/my/file2.key", # separate key SSL_cert_file => "/path/to/my/file2.crt", # separate cert SSL_foo => 1, # Any key prefixed with SSL_ passed as a port hashref # key/value will automatically be passed to IO::Socket::SSL }]); DESCRIPTION
Protocol module for Net::Server based on IO::Socket::SSL. This module implements a secure socket layer over tcp (also known as SSL) via the IO::Socket::SSL module. If this module does not work in your situation, please also consider using the SSLEAY protocol (Net::Server::Proto::SSLEAY) which interfaces directly with Net::SSLeay. See Net::Server::Proto. If you know that your server will only need IPv4 (which is the default for Net::Server), you can load IO::Socket::SSL in inet4 mode which will prevent it from using Socket6 and IO::Socket::INET6 since they would represent additional and unsued overhead. use IO::Socket::SSL qw(inet4); use base qw(Net::Server::Fork); __PACKAGE__->run(proto => "ssl"); PARAMETERS
In addition to the normal Net::Server parameters, any of the SSL parameters from IO::Socket::SSL may also be specified. See IO::Socket::SSL for information on setting this up. All arguments prefixed with SSL_ will be passed to the IO::Socket::SSL->configure method. BUGS
Until version Net::Server version 2, Net::Server::Proto::SSL used the default IO::Socket::SSL::accept method. This old approach introduces a DDOS vulnerability into the server, where the socket is accepted, but the parent server then has to block until the client negotiates the SSL connection. This has now been overcome by overriding the accept method and accepting the SSL negotiation after the parent socket has had the chance to go back to listening. LICENCE
Distributed under the same terms as Net::Server THANKS
Thanks to Vadim for pointing out the IO::Socket::SSL accept was returning objects blessed into the wrong class. perl v5.16.2 2012-05-29 Net::Server::Proto::SSL(3)
