NAME ^

VOMS::Lite::PEMHelper - Perl extension for decoding and encoding PEM X.509 certificates and keys.

SYNOPSIS ^

  use VOMS::Lite::PEMHelper qw( writeAC encodeCert encodeAC readAC readCert decodeCert writeCertKey readPrivateKey writeCert writeKey);

  # write DER AC $data as a PEM AC to file $file
  writeAC($file,$data);

  # encode DER Certificate $data as a PEM Certificate
  $cert=encodeCert($data); 

  # encode DER AC $data as a PEM AC
  $ac=encodeAC($data); 

  # read PEM AC in file $file and return DER AC 
  $data=readAC($file);

  # read PEM Certificates in file $file and return DER Certificates 
  # in array
  @certs=readCert($file);

  # read PEM Certificates in file $file and return the first as a DER 
  # Certificate
  $cert=readCert($file);

  # takes a string and/or array of PEMs followsd by a type as arguments 
  # and decodes them into an array of DERs
  @DERs=decodeCert(@PEMs,"CERTIFICATE"); 

  # take DER certificate, private key and (optionally) a chain of
  # signers and write them in PEM format to file $file
  writeCert($file, $cert);

  # take DERprivate key and write it in PEM format to file $file, 
  # encrypting with $password. If $password is undefined it will prompt 
  # for a password, if password is "" no encryption will be used.
  writeKey($file, $privateKey, $password);

  # take DER certificate, private key and (optionally) a chain of 
  # signers and write them in PEM format to file $file
  writeCertKey($file, $cert, $privateKey, @chain);

  # read in a PEM private key, prompt for a password if encrypted and 
  # return unencrypted DER private key.
  $key=readPrivateKey($file);

DESCRIPTION ^

VOMS::Lite::PEMHelper is primarily for internal use. But frankly I don't mind if you use this package directly :-)

EXPORT

None by default.

By EXPORT_OK the following functions: writeAC encodeAC readAC readCert decodeCert writeCertKey readPrivateKey writeCert writeKey
