Crypt::OpenPGP::KeyServer - Interface to HKP keyservers
use Crypt::OpenPGP::KeyServer; my $key_id = '...'; my $server = Crypt::OpenPGP::KeyServer->new( Server => 'wwwkeys.us.pgp.net' ); my $kb = $server->find_keyblock_by_keyid($key_id); print $kb->primary_uid, "\n"; my $cert = $kb->key; my @kbs = $server->find_keyblock_by_uid( 'firstname.lastname@example.org' );
Crypt::OpenPGP::KeyServer is an interface to HKP keyservers; it provides lookup by UID and by key ID. At the moment only HKP keyservers are supported; future releases will likely support the NAI LDAP servers and the email keyservers.
Constructs a new Crypt::OpenPGP::KeyServer object and returns that object.
%arg can contain:
The hostname of the HKP keyserver. This is a required argument. You can get a list of keyservers through
% host -l pgp.net | grep wwwkeys
By default, revoked keys will be skipped when calling find_keyblock_by_uid. If you set IncludeRevoked to
1, find_keyblock_by_keyid will include any revoked keys in the list of keys returned.
Looks up the key ID $key_id in the keyring $ring. For consistency with the Crypt::OpenPGP::KeyRing::find_keyblock_by_keyid interface, $key_id should be either a 4-octet or 8-octet string--it should not be a string of hexadecimal digits. If you have the hex key ID, use pack to convert it to an octet string:
pack 'H*', $hex_key_id
Returns false on failure.
Given a string $uid, searches the keyserver for all keyblocks matching the user ID $uid, including partial matches. Returns all of the matching keyblocks, the empty list on failure.
