NAME

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"
.
