***https*** driver for LWP::UserAgent
The LWP::Protocol::https module provide support for using https schemed URLs
with LWP. LWP::Protocol::https 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
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
the one provided by ca-certificates.
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
dependency on LWP::Protocol::https and will no longer need to know what
underlying modules to install.
