NAME ^

DBIx::Class::EncodedColumn::Crypt::OpenPGP - Encrypt columns using Crypt::OpenPGP

SYNOPSIS ^

  __PACKAGE__->add_columns(
    'secret_data' => {
        data_type => 'TEXT',
        encode_column => 1,
        encode_class  => 'Crypt::OpenPGP',
        encode_args   => { 
            recipient => '7BEF6294',
        },
        encode_check_method => 'decrypt_data',
 };

 my $row = $schema->resultset('EncryptedClass')
                ->create({ secret_data => 'This is secret' });

 is(
    $row->decrypt_data('Private Key Passphrase'),
        'This is secret',
        'PGP/GPG Encryption works!'
 );

DESCRIPTION ^

This is a conduit to working with Crypt::OpenPGP, so that you can encrypt data in your database using gpg. Currently this module only handles encrypting but it may add signing of columns in the future

CONFIGURATION ^

In the column definition, specify the encode_args hash as listed in the synopsis. The recipient is required if doing key exchange encryption, or if you want to use symmetric key encryption using a passphrase you can specify a passphrase option:

 encode_args => { passphrase => "Shared Secret" }

If you have a separate path to your public and private key ring file, or if you have alternative Crypt::OpenPGP configuration, you can specify the constructor args using the pgp_args configuration key:

    encode_args => {
        pgp_args => {
            SecRing => "$FindBin::Bin/var/secring.gpg",
            PubRing => "$FindBin::Bin/var/pubring.gpg",
        }
    }

The included tests cover good usage, and it is advised to briefly browse through them.

Also, remember to keep your private keys secure!
