NAME ^

OpenCA::OpenSSL - Perl Crypto Extention to OpenSSL

SYNOPSIS ^

  use OpenCA::OpenSSL;

DESCRIPTION ^

This Perl Module implements an interface to the openssl backend program. It actually uses the openssl command and it is not fully integrated as PERL/C mixture.

Passing parameters to functions should be very simple as them have no particular order and have, often, self-explaining name. Each parameter should be passed to the function like this:

        ... ( NAME=>VALUE, NAME=>VALUE, ... );

FUNCTIONS ^

sub new () - Creates a new Class instance.

        This functions creates a new instance of the class. It accepts
        only one parameter: the path to the backend command (openssl).
        This is due because if it cannot find the openssl command it
        will return an uninitialized class (default value is /usr/bin/
        openssl which may not fit many distributions/OSs)

        EXAMPLE:

                my $openssl->new OpenCA::OpenSSL( $path );

sub setParams () - Set internal module variables.

        This function can handle the internal module data such as the
        backend path or the tmp dir. Accepted parameters are:

                SHELL   - Path to the openssl command.
                CONFIG  - Path to the openssl config file.
                TMPDIR  - Temporary files directory.
                STDERR  - Where to redirect the STDERR file.

        (*) - Optional parameters;

        EXAMPLE:

                $openssl->setParams( SHELL=>'/usr/local/ssl/bin/openssl',
                                     CONFIG=>$ca/stuff/openssl.cnf,
                                     TMPDIR=>'/tmp',
                                     STDERR=>'/dev/null' );

sub errno () - Get last command errno value.

        This functions returns last operation's errno value. Non
        zero value means there has been an error.

        EXAMPLE:

                print $openssl->errno;

sub errval () - Get last command errval value.

        This functions returns last operation's errval value. This
        value usually has a brief error description.

        EXAMPLE:

                print $openssl->errval;

sub genKey () - Generate a private Key.

        This functions let you generate a new private key. Accepted
        parameters are:

                BITS      - key lengh in bits(*);
                OUTFILE   - Output file name(*);

        (*) - Optional parameters;

        EXAMPLE:

                my $key = $openssl->genKey( BITS=>1024 );

                           the openssl.cnf doc on policy);
                SUBJECT  - DN string (use this instead of passing separate
                           attributes list)(*);

                        SUBJECT => "CN=Madwolf, O=OpenCA, C=IT" );

sub genCert () - Generate a certificate from a request.

        This function let you generate a new certificate starting
        from the request file. It is used for self-signed certificate
        as it simply converts the request into a x509 structure.
        Accepted parameters are:

                OUTFILE   - Output file(*);
