NAME

No::Worries::DN - Distinguished Names handling without worries

SYNOPSIS

  use No::Worries::DN qw(dn_parse dn_string);

  $dn = dn_parse("/C=US/O=Acme Corporation/CN=John Doe");
  $string = dn_string($dn, No::Worries::DN::FORMAT_JAVA);

DESCRIPTION

This module eases Distinguished Names (DNs) handling by providing convenient functions to parse and convert DNs from and to different formats. All the functions die() on error.

FUNCTIONS

This module provides the following functions (none of them being exported by default):

dn_parse(STRING)

parse a string containing DN information and return an array reference

dn_string(DN, FORMAT)

convert the given parsed DN (an array reference) into a string of the given format, this is somehow the opposite of dn_parse()

FORMATS

Here are the supported formats:

No::Worries::DN::FORMAT_RFC2253

this is the format defined by RFC 2253, for instance: CN=John Doe,O=Acme Corporation,C=US

No::Worries::DN::FORMAT_JAVA

this is a variant of RFC 2253, with extra spaces, for instance: CN=John Doe, O=Acme Corporation, C=US

No::Worries::DN::FORMAT_OPENSSL

this is the default format used by OpenSSL, for instance: /C=US/O=Acme Corporation/CN=John Doe
