- Nov 16, 2007I wonder if anyone could help me with a few details of the internals
of SOAP::Lite. Here is the situation. I have a SOAP::Lite server
(server.pl) that is offered through HTTPS via that
SOAP::Transport::HTTP::CGI interface. server.pl is very simple, as
outlined in the documentation:
-- server.pl --
One of the clients using this service is getting SSL verification
errors. I realize that those are the domain of Crypt::SSLeay, but the
question I have is about how SOAP::Lite handles a request. Which of
these two does it do:
1) server.pl receives the request and returns a response all within
the same SSL connection (much like a normal HTTP request/response
works in the browser).
2) server.pl receives the SOAP request, does some processing and then
makes a request *of its own* back to the calling client. This would
require that the client's certificate would need to be verified by
Another way of asking this might be, does SOAP::Lite do any sort of
client certificate verification?
Any insight into this would be much appreciated. I've been banging my
head against this for days now...
