NAME ^

Net::DNS::RR::RRSIG - DNS RRSIG resource record

SYNOPSIS ^

use Net::DNS::RR;

DESCRIPTION ^

Class for DNS Address (RRSIG) resource records. In addition to the regular methods in the Net::DNS::RR the Class contains a method to sign RRsets using private keys (create). And a class for verifying signatures over RRsets (verify).

The RRSIG RR is an implementation of RFC 4034. See Net::DNS::RR::SIG for an impelementation of SIG0 (RFC 2931).

METHODS ^

create

Create a signature over a RR set.

    my $keypath= 
            "/home/olaf/keys/Kbla.foo.+001+60114.private";
    my $sigrr= create Net::DNS::RR::RRSIG(\@datarrset,
                                        $keypath);
    my $sigrr= create Net::DNS::RR::RRSIG(\@datarrset,
                                        $keypath,
                                        %arguments);
    $sigrr->print;



    #Alternatively use Net::DNS::SEC::Private 

    my $private=Net::DNS::SEC::Private-new(
        "/home/olaf/keys/Kbla.foo.+001+60114.private");
    my $sigrr= create Net::DNS::RR::RRSIG(\@datarrset,
                                          $private);

create is an alternative constructor for a RRSIG RR object.

The first argument is either reference to an array that contains the RRset that needs to be signed.

The second argument is a string containing the path to a file containing the the private key as generated with dnssec-keygen, a program that commes with the bind distribution.

The third argument is an anonymous hash containing the following possible arguments:

    ( ttl => 3600,                        # TTL 
      sigin =>   20010501010101,          # signature inception 
      sigex =>   20010501010101,          # signature expiration
      sigval => 1.5                       # signature validity
      )

The default for the ttl is 3600 seconds. sigin and sigex need to be specified in the following format 'yyyymmddhhmmss'. The default for sigin is the time of signing.

sigval is the validity of the signature in minutes for SIG0s and days for other signatures (sigex=sigin+sigval). If sigval is specified then sigex is ignored. The default for sigval is 5 minutes for SIG0s and 30 days other types of signatures.

Notes:

- Do not change the name of the file generated by dnssec-keygen, the create method uses the filename as generated by dnssec-keygen to determine the keyowner, algorithm and the keyid (keytag).

- Only RSA signatures (algorithm 1,5 and 7) and DSA signatures (algorithm 3, and 6) have been implemented.

typecovered

    print "typecovered =", $rr->typecovered, "\n"

Returns the qtype covered by the sig.

algorithm

    print "algorithm =", $rr->algorithm, "\n"

Returns the algorithm number used for the signature

labels

    print "labels =", $rr->labels, "\n"

Returns the the number of labels of the RRs over wich the sig was made.

orgttl

    print "orgttl =", $rr->orgttl, "\n"

Returns the RRs the original TTL of the signature

sigexpiration

    print "sigexpiration =", $rr->sigexpiration, "\n"

Returns the expiration date of the signature

siginception

    print "siginception =", $rr->siginception, "\n"

Returns the date the signature was incepted.

keytag

    print "keytag =", $rr->keytag, "\n"

Returns the the keytag (key id) of the key the sig was made with. Read "KeyID Bug in bind." below.

signame

    print "signame =", $rr->signame, "\n"

Returns the name of the public KEY RRs this sig was made with.

sig

    print "sig =", $rr->sig, "\n"

Returns the base64 representation of the signature.

verify and vrfyerrstr

    $sigrr->verify($data, $keyrr) || croak $sigrr->vrfyerrstr;
    $sigrr->verify($data, [$keyrr, $keyrr2, $keyrr3]) || 
                  croak $sigrr->vrfyerrstr;

If $data contains a reference to an array of RR objects then them method verifies the RRset against the signature contained in the $sigrr object itself using the public key in $keyrr. Because of the KeyID bug in bind (see below) a check on keyid is not performed.

If $data contains a reference to a Net::DNS::Packet and if $sig->type equals zero a a sig0 verification is performed. Note that the signature needs to be 'popped' from the packet before verifying.

The second argument can either be a Net::DNS::RR::KEYRR object or a reference to an array of such objects. Verification will return successful as soon as one of the keys in the array leads to positive validation.

Returns 0 on error and sets $sig->vrfyerrstr

Example

   my $sigrr=$packet->pop("additional");
   print $sigrr->vrfyerrstr unless $sigrr1->verify($update1, $keyrr1);

Remarks ^

- The code is not optimized for speed whatsoever. It is probably not suitable to be used for signing large zones.

TODO ^

- Clean up the code.

- If this code is still around by 2030 you have a few years to check the proper handling of times...

- Add wildcard handling
