NAME

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

CONTENTS

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.
