NAMENet::DNS::RR::SIG - DNS SIG resource record
use Net::DNS; $rr = new Net::DNS::RR('name SIG typecovered algorithm labels orgttl sigexpiration siginception keytag signame signature'); use Net::DNS::SEC; $sigrr = create Net::DNS::RR::SIG( $string, $keypath, sigval => 10 # minutes ); $sigrr->verify( $string, $keyrr ) || die $sigrr->vrfyerrstr; $sigrr->verify( $packet, $keyrr ) || die $sigrr->vrfyerrstr;
In addition to the regular methods inherited from Net::DNS::RR the class contains a method to sign packets and scalar data strings using private keys (create) and a method for verifying signatures.
METHODSThe available methods are those inherited from the base class augmented by the type-specific methods defined in this package.
Use of undocumented package features or direct access to internal data structures is discouraged and could result in program termination or other unpredictable behaviour.
$algorithm = $rr->algorithm;
The algorithm number field identifies the cryptographic algorithm used to create the signature.
algorithm() may also be invoked as a class method or simple function to perform mnemonic and numeric code translation.
sigexpiration and siginception times
sigex sigin sigval
$expiration = $rr->sigexpiration; $expiration = $rr->sigexpiration( $value ); $inception = $rr->siginception; $inception = $rr->siginception( $value );
The signature expiration and inception fields specify a validity time interval for the signature.
The value may be specified by a string with format 'yyyymmddhhmmss' or a Perl time() value.
Return values are dual-valued, providing either a string value or numerical Perl time() value.
$keytag = $rr->keytag; $rr->keytag( $keytag );
The keytag field contains the key tag value of the
$signame = $rr->signame; $rr->signame( $signame );
The signer name field value identifies the owner name of the
$sig = $rr->sig; $rr->sig( $sig );
The Signature field contains the cryptographic signature that covers the
$sigbin = $rr->sigbin; $rr->sigbin( $sigbin );
Binary representation of the cryptographic signature.
createCreate a signature over scalar data.
use Net::DNS::SEC; $keypath = '/home/olaf/keys/Kbla.foo.+001+60114.private'; $sigrr = create Net::DNS::RR::SIG( $data, $keypath ); $sigrr = create Net::DNS::RR::SIG( $data, $keypath, sigval => 10 ); $sigrr->print; # Alternatively use Net::DNS::SEC::Private $private = Net::DNS::SEC::Private->new($keypath); $sigrr= create Net::DNS::RR::SIG( $data, $private );
create() is an alternative constructor for a
This method returns a
The first argument is a scalar that contains the data to be signed.
The second argument is a string which specifies the path to a file containing the private key as generated with dnssec-keygen, a program that comes with the
The optional remaining arguments consist of ( name => value ) pairs as follows:
sigin => 20161201010101, # signature inception sigex => 20161201011101, # signature expiration sigval => 10, # validity window (minutes)
The sigin and sigex values may be specified as Perl time values or as a string with the format 'yyyymmddhhmmss'. The default for sigin is the time of signing.
The sigval argument specifies the signature validity window in minutes ( sigex = sigin + sigval ).
By default the signature is valid for 10 minutes.
- Do not change the name of the file generated by dnssec-keygen, the create method uses the filename as generated by dnssec-keygen to determine the keyowner, algorithm and the keyid (keytag).
$verify = $sigrr->verify( $data, $keyrr ); $verify = $sigrr->verify( $data, [$keyrr, $keyrr2, $keyrr3] );
The verify() method performs
If a reference to a Net::DNS::Packet is supplied, the method performs a
The second argument can either be a Net::DNS::RR::KEYRR object or a reference to an array of such objects. Verification will return successful as soon as one of the keys in the array leads to positive validation.
Returns false on error and sets $sig->vrfyerrstr
$sig0 = $packet->sigrr || die 'not signed'; print $sig0->vrfyerrstr unless $sig0->verify( $packet, $keyrr ); $sigrr->verify( $packet, $keyrr ) || die $sigrr->vrfyerrstr;
REMARKSThe code is not optimised for speed.
If this code is still around in 2100 (not a leap year) you will need to check for proper handling of times ...
