swilting has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I seek to understand how to position the value SSL_verify_mode => 0x00.

can you explain how to properly use this parameter in IO::Socket::SSL

    I'm assuming that you want no verification done, so using SSL_verify_mode => 0x00 can be as simple as using the SSL_CTX_set_verify method. I used the example in the ex dir.
    #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use LWP::Simple; use IO::Socket::SSL 'debug0'; $|=1; IO::Socket::SSL::set_ctx_defaults( SSL_verifycn_scheme => 'www', SSL_verify_mode => 0, ); print get( '' );
    First, you want to make sure that you don't use debugging because that'll call in ciphers from Net::SSLeay and call Net::SSL, which you don't want to use. Then set IO::Socket::SSL::set_ctx_defaults.
