NAME ^

Net::Server::Proto::SSLEAY - Custom Net::Server SSL protocol handler based on Net::SSLeay.

SYNOPSIS ^

See Net::Server::Proto.

    use base qw(Net::Server::HTTP);
    main->run(
        proto => 'ssleay',
        SSL_key_file  => "/path/to/my/file.key",
        SSL_cert_file => "/path/to/my/file.crt",
    );


    # OR

    sub SSL_key_file  { "/path/to/my/file.key" }
    sub SSL_cert_file { "/path/to/my/file.crt" }
    main->run(proto => 'ssleay');


    # OR

    main->run(
        port => [443, 8443, "80/tcp"],  # bind to two ssleay ports and one tcp
        proto => "ssleay",    # use ssleay as the default
        ipv  => "*",          # bind both IPv4 and IPv6 interfaces
        SSL_key_file  => "/path/to/my/file.key",
        SSL_cert_file => "/path/to/my/file.crt",
    );


    # OR

    main->run(port => [{
        port  => "443",
        proto => "ssleay",
        # ipv => 4, # default - only do IPv4
        SSL_key_file  => "/path/to/my/file.key",
        SSL_cert_file => "/path/to/my/file.crt",
    }, {
        port  => "8443",
        proto => "ssleay",
        ipv   => "*", # IPv4 and IPv6
        SSL_key_file  => "/path/to/my/file2.key", # separate key
        SSL_cert_file => "/path/to/my/file2.crt", # separate cert
    }]);

DESCRIPTION ^

This module has reliably been used in situations receiving millions of hits on a single box per day. If anybody has any successes or ideas for improvment under SSLEAY, please email <paul@seamons.com>.

Protocol module for Net::Server. This module implements a secure socket layer over tcp (also known as SSL). See Net::Server::Proto.

If you need more customization of the SSL layer, you may want to investigate using SSL rather than SSLEAY as it uses the venerable(ish) IO::Socket::SSL.

PARAMETERS ^

Currently there is support for the following:

SSL_cert_file

Full path to the certificate file to be used for this server. Should be in PEM format.

SSL_key_file

Full path to the key file to be used for this server. Should be in PEM format.

SSL_max_getline_length

Used during getline to only read until this many bytes are found. Default is undef which means unlimited.

SSL_error_callback

Should be a code ref that will be called whenever error conditions are encountered. It passes a source message and an arrayref of the errors.

METHODS ^

This module implements most of the common file handle operations. There are some additions though:

read_until

Takes bytes and match qr. If bytes is defined - it will read until that many bytes are found. If match qr is defined, it will read until the buffer matches that qr. If both are undefined, it will read until there is nothing left to read.

error

If an error occurred while writing, this method will return that error.

BUGS ^

There are probably many.

LICENCE ^

Distributed under the same terms as Net::Server

THANKS ^

Thanks to Bilbo at http://devpit.org/wiki/OpenSSL_with_nonblocking_sockets_%28in_Perl%29 for documenting a more reliable way of accepting and reading SSL connections.
