NAME ^

POE::Component::Lightspeed::Authentication - Protect your local kernel!

SYNOPSIS ^

        use POE;
        use POE::Component::Lightspeed::Authentication qw( auth_register auth_unregister );

        # Spawn your client/server session here and connect to the network

        # Register a callback for incoming POST messages heading towards session 'MyPrivateSession'
        auth_register( 'post', \&MyAuthRoutine, 'MyPrivateSession' );

        # Register a callback for incoming CALL messages for any session
        auth_register( 'call', \&MyCallRoutine, '*' );

        # Remove our post callback
        auth_unregister( 'post', 'MyPrivateSession' );

ABSTRACT ^

        This module presents an easy API to insert Authentication hooks into Lightspeed

DESCRIPTION ^

All you need to do is import the 2 subroutines provided.

AVAILABLE HOOKS

post

Hooks into incoming post() calls from remote sessions. The hook subroutine will be given these arguments:

        - 'post'
        - Destination session
        - Destination state
        - The remote session ( extract information from it via $session->remote_kernel/session/state/file/line )

call

Hooks into incoming call() calls from remote sessions. The hook subroutine will be given these arguments:

        - 'call'
        - Destination session
        - Destination state
        - The RSVP in the format [ KERNEL, SESSION, STATE ]
        - The remote session ( extract information from it via $session->remote_kernel/session/state/file/line )

callreply

Hooks into incoming post() calls from remote sessions replying to a call(). The hook subroutine will be given these arguments:

        - 'callreply'
        - Destination session
        - Destination state
        - The remote session ( extract information from it via $session->remote_kernel/session/state/file/line )

introspection

Hooks into incoming introspection requests. The hook subroutine will be given these arguments:

        - 'introspection'
        - 'session' or 'state'

                # The session introspection request will only get 2 more argument:
                - The RSVP in the format [ KERNEL, SESSION, STATE ]
                - The remote session ( extract information from it via $session->remote_kernel/session/state/file/line )

                # The state introspection request will get 3 more arguments:
                - The Destination session
                - The RSVP in the format [ KERNEL, SESSION, STATE ]
                - The remote session ( extract information from it via $session->remote_kernel/session/state/file/line )

monitor_register

Hooks into incoming monitor requests. The hook subroutine will be given these arguments:

        - 'monitor_register'
        - The various monitor types
        - The argument for the monitor
        - The RSVP for the monitor
        - The remote session ( extract information from it via $session->remote_kernel/session/state/file/line )

monitor_unregister

Hooks into incoming monitor requests. The hook subroutine will be given these arguments:

        - 'monitor_unregister'
        - The various monitor types
        - The argument for the monitor
        - The RSVP for the monitor
        - The remote session ( extract information from it via $session->remote_kernel/session/state/file/line )

METHODS

auth_register

        Requires a minimum of 2 arguments
                - The hook type ( post/call/callreply/introspection )
                - The hook subroutine reference

        The extra argument is the session or the introspection type, defaults to '*' if none was supplied

        Returns true on success, undef on failure

auth_unregister

        Requires a minimum of 1 argument
                - The hook type ( post/call/callreply/introspection )

        The extra argument is the session or the introspection type, defaults to '*' if none was supplied

        Returns true on success, undef on failure

EXPORT ^

Exports the 2 subs in EXPORT_OK

QUIRKS ^

        - It will not run the specific auth hook and the generic auth hook ( '*' ), it picks only one to run!

        - Certain types of incoming results can have a RSVP going to our own kernel, those messages are not run through
          the Authentication system, as it doesn't make sense to have the remote information point to ourself...

        - Yes, the monitor hooks won't work as the Lightspeed::Monitor module is still in the works =]
