Secure web servers speak in https support for this protocol is not
part of the standard LWP package.  However I believe that you can add
support for the https protocol using the Crypt::SSLeay module.  You can
find some info at
http://www.adpc.purdue.edu/WebSvc/PerlDocs/lib/site/Crypt/SSLeay.html .
I've only used LWP a few times and I've never had to access secure sites,
but it appears that once you have the SSLeay module installed it will work
transparently through the standard LWP methods.
