NAME ^

Mail::GnuPG - Process email with GPG.

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Mail::GnuPG;
  my $mg = new Mail::GnuPG( key => 'ABCDEFGH' );
  $ret = $mg->mime_sign( $MIMEObj, 'you@my.dom' );

DESCRIPTION ^

Use GnuPG::Interface to process or create PGP signed or encrypted email.

new

  Create a new Mail::GnuPG instance.

 Arguments:
   Paramhash...

   key    => gpg key id
   keydir => gpg configuration/key directory
   passphrase => primary key password

   # FIXME: we need more things here, maybe primary key id.

decrypt

 Decrypt an encrypted message

 Input:
   MIME::Entity containing email message to decrypt.

  The message can either be in RFC compliant-ish multipart/encrypted
  format, or just a single part ascii armored message.

 Output:
  On Failure:
    Exit code of gpg.  (0 on success)

  On Success: (just encrypted)
    (0, undef, undef)

  On success: (signed and encrypted)
    ( 0,
      keyid,           # ABCDDCBA
      emailaddress     # Foo Bar <foo@bar.com>
    )

   where the keyid is the key that signed it, and emailaddress is full
   name and email address of the primary uid


  $self->{last_message} => any errors from gpg
  $self->{plaintext}    => plaintext output from gpg
  $self->{decrypted}    => parsed output as MIME::Entity

get_decrypt_key

 determines the decryption key (and corresponding mail) of a message

 Input:
   MIME::Entity containing email message to analyze.

  The message can either be in RFC compliant-ish multipart/signed
  format, or just a single part ascii armored message.

 Output:
  $key    -- decryption key
  $mail   -- corresponding mail address

verify

 verify a signed message

 Input:
   MIME::Entity containing email message to verify.

  The message can either be in RFC compliant-ish multipart/signed
  format, or just a single part ascii armored message.

 Output:
  On error:
    Exit code of gpg.  (0 on success)
  On success
    ( 0,
      keyid,           # ABCDDCBA
      emailaddress     # Foo Bar <foo@bar.com>
    )

   where the keyid is the key that signed it, and emailaddress is full
   name and email address of the primary uid

  $self->{last_message} => any errors from gpg

has_public_key

Does the keyring have a public key for the specified email address?

 FIXME: document better.  talk about caching.  maybe put a better
 interface in.

mime_sign

  sign an email message

 Input:
   MIME::Entity containing email message to sign

 Output:
  Exit code of gpg.  (0 on success)

  $self->{last_message} => any errors from gpg

  The provided $entity will be signed.  (i.e. it _will_ be modified.)

clear_sign

  clearsign the body of an email message

 Input:
   MIME::Entity containing email message to sign.
   This entity MUST have a body.

 Output:
  Exit code of gpg.  (0 on success)

  $self->{last_message} => any errors from gpg

  The provided $entity will be signed.  (i.e. it _will_ be modified.)

ascii_encrypt

  encrypt an email message body using ascii armor

 Input:
   MIME::Entity containing email message to encrypt.
   This entity MUST have a body.

   list of recipients

 Output:
  Exit code of gpg.  (0 on success)

  $self->{last_message} => any errors from gpg

  The provided $entity will be encrypted.  (i.e. it _will_ be modified.)

ascii_signencrypt

  encrypt and sign an email message body using ascii armor

 Input:
   MIME::Entity containing email message to encrypt.
   This entity MUST have a body.

   list of recipients

 Output:

  $self->{last_message} => any errors from gpg

  The provided $entity will be encrypted.  (i.e. it _will_ be modified.)

mime_encrypt

  encrypt an email message

 Input:
   MIME::Entity containing email message to encrypt
   list of email addresses to sign to

 Output:
  Exit code of gpg.  (0 on success)

  $self->{last_message} => any errors from gpg

  The provided $entity will be encrypted.  (i.e. it _will_ be modified.)

mime_signencrypt

  sign and encrypt an email message

 Input:
   MIME::Entity containing email message to sign encrypt
   list of email addresses to sign to

 Output:
  Exit code of gpg.  (0 on success)

  $self->{last_message} => any errors from gpg

  The provided $entity will be encrypted.  (i.e. it _will_ be modified.)

is_signed

  best guess as to whether a message is signed or not (by looking at
  the mime type and message content)

 Input:
   MIME::Entity containing email message to test

 Output:
  True or False value

is_encrypted
