NAME

Konfidi::Client - Interact with a Konfidi TrustServer

DESCRIPTION

Konfidi is a trust framework that uses topical trust values from a social network of authenticated people. When you see a document (e.g email, webpage) from someone you do not know, but he/she is in the network, Konfidi will compute an inferred trust value for you. For more information, see http://konfidi.org

VERSION

Version 1.0.4

SYNOPSIS

    use Konfidi::Client;
    use Error qw(:try);

    my $k = Konfidi::Client->new();
    $k->server('http://test-server.konfidi.org');
    try {
        my $response = $k->query($truster_40char_pgp_fingerprint, $trusted_40char_pgp_fingerprint, 'http://www.konfidi.org/ns/topics/0.0#internet-communication');
    } catch Konfidi::Client::Error with {
        my $E = shift;
        die "Couldn't query the trustserver: $E";
    };
    ...

See Error for error handling documentation
