NAME

Mail::OpenDKIM::Signer - generates a DKIM signature for a message

SYNOPSIS

  use Mail::DKIM::Signer;

  # create a signer object
  my $dkim = Mail::OpenDKIM::Signer->new(
        Algorithm => 'rsa-sha1',
        Method => 'relaxed',
        Domain => 'example.org',
        Selector => 'selector1',
        KeyFile => 'private.key',
  );

  # read an email and pass it into the signer, one line at a time
  while(<STDIN>) {
        # remove local line terminators
        chomp;
        s/\015$//;

        # use SMTP line terminators
        $dkim->PRINT("$_\015\012");
  }
  $dkim->CLOSE();

  # what is the signature result?
  my $signature = $dkim->signature;
  print $signature->as_string;

DESCRIPTION

Use this class to generate a signature for inclusion in the header of an email.

It provides enough of a subset of the functionaility of Mail::DKIM::Signer to allow use of the OpenDKIM library with simple drop-in replacements. Mail::OpenDKIM::Signer offloads the signing work to the OpenDKIM library, and is therefore far quicker.

SUBROUTINES/METHODS

new

Creates the signer.

PRINT

NOTES

This module does not yet implement all of the API of Mail::DKIM::Signer

The PRINT method is expensive. To increase performance we recommend that you minimise the number of calls to this function, perhaps by storing the message in a buffer before passing it to this function.
