NAME ^

Net::Proxy::Connector::ssl - SSL Net::Proxy connector

DESCRIPTION ^

Net::Proxy::Connecter::ssl is a Net::Proxy::Connector that can manage SSL connections (thanks to IO::Socket::SSL).

By default, this connector creates SSL sockets. You will need to subclass it to create "smarter" connectors than can upgrade their connections to SSL.

In addition to the options listed below, this connector accepts all SSL_... options to IO::Socket::SSL. They are transparently passed through to the appropriate IO::Socket::SSL methods when needed.

CONNECTOR OPTIONS ^

The connector accept the following options:

in

host

The listening address. If not given, the default is localhost.

port

The listening port.

start_cleartext

If true, the connection will start in cleartext. It is possible to upgrade a socket to using SSL with the upgrade_SSL() method.

out

host

The listening address. If not given, the default is localhost.

port

The listening port.

start_cleartext

If true, the connection will start in cleartext. It is possible to upgrade a socket to using SSL with the upgrade_SSL() method.

METHODS ^

The Net::Proxy::Connector::ssl connector has an extra method:

upgrade_SSL

    $connector->upgrade_SSL( $sock )

This method will upgrade a cleartext socket to SSL. If the socket is already in SSL, it will carp().

CREATING A SELF-SIGNED CERTIFICATE ^

I tend to forget this information, and the openssl documentation doesn't make this any clearer, so here are the most basic commands needed to create your own self-signed certificate (courtesy David Morel):

    $ openssl genrsa -out key.pem 1024
    $ openssl req -new -key key.pem -x509 -out cert.pem -days 365

A certificate is required is you want to run a SSL server or a proxy with a Net::Proxy::Connector::ssl as its in connector.

Once the key and certificate have been created, you can use them in your parameter list to Net::Proxy->new() (they are passed through to IO::Socket::SSL):

    Net::Proxy->new(
        {
            in => {
                host          => '0.0.0.0',
                port          => 443,
                SSL_key_file  => 'key.pem',
                SSL_cert_file => 'cert.pem',
            },
            out => { type => 'tcp', port => '80' }
        }
    );
