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

      use LWP::UserAgent;

      $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new(ssl_opts => { verify_hostname => 1 });
      $res = $ua->get("");

    The LWP::Protocol::https module provide 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

    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.

    IO::Socket::SSL, Crypt::SSLeay, Mozilla::CA
