NAME

Mail::SpamAssassin::Spamd::Apache2::AclRFC1413 - check spamd's client ident

SYNOPSIS

 ##### in httpd.conf:
 # engine; module has been separated in Apache 2.1
 LoadModule ident_module modules/mod_ident.so
 IdentityCheck   on
 IdentityTimeout 4

 # enable check
 PerlLoadModule Mail::SpamAssassin::Spamd::Apache2::Config
 SAident on

 ##### in PerlProcessConnectionHandler:
 Mail::SpamAssassin::Spamd::Apache2::AclRFC1413::check_ident($c, "user")
   or return Apache2::Const::FORBIDDEN;

 # or like this:
 my $remote_logname =
   Mail::SpamAssassin::Spamd::Apache2::AclRFC1413::get_ident($c)

DESCRIPTION

Queries remote ident server using mod_ident.so, saves result in $c-notes()>.

Returns Apache2::Const::FORBIDDEN on failure.

The SAident On directive actually does this: PerlPreConnectionHandler Mail::SpamAssassin::Spamd::Apache2::AclRFC1413

NOTE

Doing ident for non-localhost users is rather pointless. Unless you know what you're doing, listen only on 127.0.0.1 and/or ::1, if you want to prevent users from lying about their identity. Or use SSL with client certificates (refer to mod_ssl documentation for details).

FUNCTIONS

check_ident($c, $username)

Returns remote username (might be "0"), as returned by the ident server, if it matches supplied $username; undef otherwise.

get_ident($c)

Returns remote username (might be "0"), as returned by the ident server.

EXPORTS

Nothing.
