Subject: LWP Certificate Validation Features prevent connection.
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 838b
I was updating a script we have which uses BigIP::Control. With the latest version of the module on perl 5.18 connection fails with: 500 Can't connect to myf5.myorg.org:443 (certificate verify failed) at /usr/local/share/perl/5.18.2/BigIP/iControl.pm line 600. The administrator who set up our new F5 followed the official recommendation of using a self-signed certificate. the following works before calling BigIP::iControl->new $ENV{'PERL_LWP_SSL_VERIFY_HOSTNAME'} = 0; IO::Socket::SSL::set_ctx_defaults( SSL_verifycn_scheme => 'www', SSL_verify_mode => 0, ); While I was able to find an LWP option to specify the location of a CA certificate store, there doesn't seem to be one to trust a self-signed certficate. It would be helpful if you documented this or added an optional parameter to disable certificate checking.
