The generic Web Service Security protocol is implemented by the super class XML::Compile::WSS. This extension implements cypto signatures.
One or more elements of the document can be selected to be signed (with signElement()) They are canonalized (serialized in a well-described way) and then digested (usually via SHA1). The digest is put in a
SignedInfo component of the
Signature feature in the
Security header. When all digests are in place, the whole SignedInfo structure
Many companies have their own use of the pile of standards for this feature. Some of the resulting limitations are known by the author:
Only digest algorithms which are provided via the Digest module are supported for the elements to be signed.
Only a limited subset of signing (algoritm, hash) combinations are supported. Lower on this page, you find details about each of the provided signing implementations.

The algorithm to be used for canonicalization of some component. These constants are pre-defined with nice
C14N_* names in XML::Compile::C14N::Util.
The algorithm used to sign the body digest, when sending. The digest name is an ugly constant which has a nice
DSIG_* alias defined in XML::Compile::WSS::Util.
Used for canonicalization.
The exact features of this option depend on the sign_method. Usually, you can specify an OBJECT which contains the key, or STRING or FILENAME to create such an object.
In some cases, the public key can be derived from the private key.
The KEYTYPE must be specified in the SignedInfo. It depends on the
sign_method which default is taken.
How to publish the public key. The
INCLUDE_BY_REF constant (currently the only one supported) will add the key as BinarySecurityToken in the message, plus a keyinfo structure with a reference to that token.
To defend against man-in-the-middle attacks, you need to specify the server's public key. When specified, that key will be used to verify the signature, not the one listed in the XML response.
Only when this
remote_pubkey is specified, we will require the signature. Otherwise, the check of the signature will only be performed when a Signature is available in the Security header.
remote_pubkey is a STRING or FILENAME. Usually WSM10_BASE64, to indicate that the key is in base64 encoding. When not defined, the key is in binary format.
remote_pubkey is a STRING or FILENAME.
Used when the
remote_pubkey is specified.
The choices here are explained below, in the "DETAILS" section of this manual page.
Returns the default DIGEST constant, as set with new(digest_method).
This must be a full constant name, as provided by XML::Compile::WSS::Util. They are listed under export tags
Digest the text (passed as TEXTREF for reasons of performance) into a binary string.
Returns information about canonicalization method CANON. By default the algoritm of defaultCanonMethod().
Returns the default Canonicalization method as constant.
Returns an ARRAY with the prefixes to be used in canonicalization.
Register the ELEMENT to be checked for correct signature.
When the remote public key is specified explicitly, this will return the code-reference to check it received SignedInfo.
Must be called after all elements-to-be-signed have been created, but before the SignedInfo object gets serialized.
Returns a HASH with (wsu-id, node) pairs to be checked. The administration is reset with this action.
Returns an ARRAY of all NODES which need to be signed. This will also reset the administration.
Add an element to be the list of NODEs to be signed. For instance, the SOAP message will register the
-Option--Default id unique
Each element to be signed needs a
wsu:Id to refer to. If the NODE does not have one, the specified UNIQUEID is taken. If there is none specified, one is generated.
The base of this whole security protocol is crypto-signing the messages, so you will always need to specify some parameters for new().
my $wss = XML::Compile::WSS::Signature->new ( sign_method => DSIG_$algo , ...parameters for $algo... );
When the algorithm is known (see the next sections of this chapter), then the parameters will be used to produce the CODE which will do the signing.
The signature can easily be spoofed with a man-in-the-middle attack, unless you hard-code the remote's public key.
my $wss = XML::Compile::WSS::Signature->new ( ... , remote_sign_method => DSIG_RSA_SHA1 # default , remote_pubkey_type => XTP10_X509 # default , remote_pubkey_encoding => WSM10_BASE64 , remote_pubkey => $base64_enc_key_string ); my $wss = XML::Compile::WSS::Signature->new ( ... , remote_sign_method => DSIG_RSA_SHA1 # default , remote_pubkey => $key # $key is a Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA public key object );
The signing algorithm uses Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA. According to its manual-page, the current implementation is limited to
DSIG_RSA_SHA1 DSIGM_RSA_MD5 DSIGM_RSA_SHA256 DSIGM_RSA_SHA384 DSIGM_RSA_SHA512
It could support some RSA_RIPEMD160, however there is no official constant for that in the standards.
my $wss = XML::Compile::WSS::Signature->new ( sign_method => DSIG_RSA_SHA1 , private_key => $privkey , public_key_type => XTP10_X509 # default , public_key => $pubkey # default from $privkey , public_key_id => 'public-key' # default , publish_pubkey => 'INCLUDE_BY_REF' # default );
You have to provide the private key. There are various ways to do that. Valid values for
$privkey in above example:
containing the private key, for instance created via its
The private key is read from the FILENAME. Typically, the filename ends on ".pem".
The private key is provided as string, formatted the same way as a PEM file looks.
public_key_type, you specify the format of the public key. By default, the
XTP10_X509 is taken. You may also specify other
XTP10_* constants XML::Compile::WSS::Util tag-group
public_key, you have the same options as for the
private_key option, although the object is created with new_public_key this time. If the $pubkey is not provided, the $privkey object is used.
publish_pubkey can be a prefined constant or a CODE reference. This function will be called then the
wsse:Security structure is being constructed. It puts the public key information in the right Perl structure to be translated into XML automatically. The only defined constant is
