NAME ^

Slackware::Slackget::Network::Auth - The authentification/authorization class for slack-getd network deamons.

VERSION ^

Version 1.0.0

SYNOPSIS ^

This class is used by slack-get daemon's to verify the permission of an host.

    use Slackware::Slackget::Network::Auth;

    my $auth = Slackware::Slackget::Network::Auth->new($config);
    if(!$auth->can_connect($client->peerhost()))
    {
        $client->close ;
    }

CONSTRUCTOR ^

new

The constructor just take one argument: a Slackware::Slackget::Config object :

        my $auth = new Slackware::Slackget::Network::Auth ($config);

FUNCTIONS ^

All methods name are the same as configuration file directives, but you need to change '-' to '_'.

RETURNED VALUES

All methods return TRUE (1) if directive is set to 'yes', FALSE (0) if set to 'no' and undef if the directive cannot be found in the Slackware::Slackget::Config. For some secure reasons, all directives are in read-only access. But in the real use the undef value must never been returned, because all method fall back to the <all> section on undefined value. So if a method return undef, this is because the <daemon> -> <connection-policy> -> <all> section is not complete, and that's really a very very bad idea !

can_connect

Take an host address and return the appropriate value.

        $auth->can_connect($client->peerhost) or die "client is not allow to connect\n";
