LWP now supports host name and certificate verification
Certificate and host-name verification, which is disabled by default, has been implemented in the World Wide Web library for Perl (LWP, also called libwww-perl). This allows users of the *LWP::UserAgent* Perl module to verify the identity of HTTPS servers. To enable the verification, make sure the *IO::Socket::SSL* Perl module is installed and the `PERL_LWP_SSL_VERIFY_HOSTNAME` environment variable set to `1` or that the application is modified to set the `ssl_opts` option correctly. See *LWP::UserAgent* POD for more details.
