        You can simply extract information about the SSL certificate of HTTP connections using OpenSSL

openssl s_client -connect ${URL}:${PORT}

For example:

openssl s_client -connect checkout.google.com:443

From there, it is only redirecting the output to a file or extracting information out of the stream with Perl.
