Hi, I am just forwarding a whishlist bug from the Debian BTS. ---> Here is a small patch to add the possibility for a Perl script to check the peer certificate fingerprints e.g. in a similar way fetchmail does. This adds the capability to strongly authenticate the peer when using Net::SSLeay <--- The main entry for the bug report can be seen at the following address: I have enclosed the patch anyway. Regards, -- Franck Joncourt

Thanks, this patch has been applied with a minor change: the original patch used stricmp, which is not available in all perls (eg OpenSUsE 5.10.0). Changed to use strcmp instead, which makes signature type required to be lowercase. Also add a test case to 07_sslecho.t SVN has been updated. Cheers.
