Net::DNS::SEC::Private - DNSSEC Private key object
use Net::DNS::SEC::Private; $private = Net::DNS::SEC::Private->new($keypath);
Class containing a the private key as read from a dnssec-keygen generated keyfile. The class is written to be used only in the context of the Net::DNS::RR::RRSIG create method. This class is not designed to interact with any other system.
Creator method. The argument is the full path to a private key generated by the BIND dnssec-keygen tool. Note that the filename contains information about the algorithm and keyid.
Returns the private key material. This is either a Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA or Crypt::OpenSSL::DSA object. This is really only relevant to the Net::DNS::RR::RRSIG and Net::DNS::RR::SIG classes.
$private->algorithm $private->keytag $private->signame $private->created $private->publish $private->activate
Returns components as determined from the filename and needed by Net::DNS::RR::RRSIG. The 'created', 'publish' and 'activate' components are only available in version 1.3 or higher formatted files.
These functions may be usefull to read and transfer BIND private keys to and from X509 format.
Creates a Net::DNS::SEC::Private object from the supplied string. For the object to be useful you will have to provide the "domain" name for which this key is to be used as the second argument and the flag (either 256 or 257 for a non SEP and a SEP key respectivly).
The string should include the -----BEGIN...----- and -----END...----- lines. The padding is set to PKCS1_OAEP, but can be changed with the use_xxx_padding methods
It is the same
Returns the content of a BIND private keyfile (Private-key-format: v1.2).
An empty string will be returned if not all parameters are available (please supply the author with example code if this ever happens).
Returns the publick key part of the DNSKEY RR.
Returns an empty string on failure.
my $flags=257; # SEP key. my $keytag=$private->dump_rsa_keytag($flags);
This function will calculate the keyt with the value of the DNSKEY flags as input.
The flags field may be needed in case it was not specified when the key was created. If the object allready knows it's flags vallue the input is ignored.
returns undefined on failure
Return the DER-encoded PKCS1 representation of the private key. (Same format that can be read with the read_rsa_private method.)
my $keypair=Net::DNS::SEC::Private->generate_rsa("example.com",$flag,1024,$random, $algorithm); prin $newkey->dump_rsa_priv; print $newkey->dump_rsa_pub();
Uses Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA generate_key to create a keypair.
First argument is the name of the key, the second argument is the flag field (take a value of 257 for Keysigning keys and a value of 256 for zone signing keys). The 3rd argument is the keysize.
If the 4th argument is defined it is passed to the Crypt::OpenSSL::Random::random_seed method (see Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA for details), not needed with a proper /dev/random.
This is a code sniplet from the test script. First a new keypair is generated. An Net::DNS::RR object is created by constructing the resource record string - using the dump_rsa_pub() method.
Then a self signature over the public key is created and verified.
my $newkey=Net::DNS::SEC::Private->generate_rsa("example.com",257,1024); my $tstpubkeyrr= Net::DNS::RR->new ($newkey->signame . " IN DNSKEY 257 3 5 ". $newkey->dump_rsa_pub()); # flags not needed as argument for dump_rsa_keytag $ since they where set by generate_rsa is($tstpubkeyrr->keytag,$newkey->dump_rsa_keytag(), "Consistent keytag calculation"); my $sigrr= create Net::DNS::RR::RRSIG([$tstpubkeyrr],$newkey); is ($sigrr->keytag,$tstpubkeyrr->keytag, "Consisted keytag in the created signature");; ok($sigrr->verify([$tstpubkeyrr],$tstpubkeyrr), "Self verification consistent.");
