Net::SSLGlue::FTP - extend Net::FTP for FTPS (SSL) and IPv6
# SSL right from start
my $ftps = Net::FTP->new( $host,
SSL => 1,
SSL_ca_path => ...
# SSL through upgrade of plain connection
my $ftp = Net::FTP->new( $host );
$ftp->starttls( SSL_ca_path => ... );
# change protection mode to unencrypted|encrypted
$ftp->prot('C'); # clear
$ftp->prot('P'); # protected
Net::SSLGlue::FTP extends Net::FTP so one can either start directly with SSL or
switch later to SSL using starttls method (AUTH TLS command). If
IO::Socket::IP or IO::Socket::INET6 are installed it will also transparently
By default it will take care to verify the certificate according to the rules
for FTP implemented in IO::Socket::SSL.
- The method "new" of Net::FTP is now able to start directly with
SSL when the argument "<SSL =" 1>> is given. One can
give the usual "SSL_*" parameter of IO::Socket::SSL to
- If the connection is not yet SSLified it will issue the "AUTH
TLS" command and change the object, so that SSL will now be
- peer_certificate ...
- Once the SSL connection is established you can use this method to get
information about the certificate. See the IO::Socket::SSL
All of these methods can take the "SSL_*" parameter from
IO::Socket::SSL to change the behavior of the SSL connection. 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
- 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.
- 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
