The Crypt::OpenSSL::X509 library provides all of the information in
question; however the SubjectAltName it provides is a bit of a jumble.
It's a wrapper around the OpenSSL C library.

Crypt::X509 provides cleaner SubjectAltName data, but doesn't provide
the exponent and modulus. It's a pure Perl implementation.

In my latest work on CGI::Auth::FOAF_SSL I'm using both libraries, as
together they are able to provide everything needed. Also I've filed a
wishlist item on Crypt::X509, so at some point in the future might be
able to drop the Crypt::OpenSSL::X509 dependency.
