NAME

Crypt::Misc - miscellaneous functions related to (or used by) CryptX

SYNOPSIS

This module contains a collection of mostly unsorted functions loosely-related to CryptX distribution but not implementing cryptography.

Most of them are also available in other perl modules but once you utilize CryptX you might avoid dependencies on other modules by using functions from Crypt::Misc.

DESCRIPTION

 use Crypt::Misc ':all';

 # Base64 and Base64/URL-safe functions
 $base64    = encode_b64($rawbytes);
 $rawbytes  = decode_b64($base64);
 $base64url = encode_b64u($encode_b64u);
 $rawbytes  = decode_b64u($base64url);

 # read/write file
 $rawdata = read_rawfile($filename);
 write_rawfile($filename, $rawdata);

 # convert PEM/DER
 $der_data = pem_to_der($pem_data);
 $pem_data = der_to_pem($der_data);

  # others
  die "mismatch" unless slow_eq($str1, $str2);

FUNCTIONS

By default, Crypt::Misc doesn't import any function. You can import individual functions like this:

 use Crypt::Misc qw(read_rawfile);

Or import all available functions:

 use Crypt::Misc ':all';

read_rawfile

Since: 0.029

 $rawdata = read_rawfile($filename);

Read file $filename into a scalar as a binary data (without decoding/transformation).

write_rawfile

Since: 0.029

 write_rawfile($filename, $rawdata);

Write $rawdata to file $filename as binary data.

slow_eq

Since: 0.029

 if (slow_eq($data1, $data2)) { ... }

Constant time compare (to avoid timing side-channel).

pem_to_der

Since: 0.029

  $der_data = pem_to_der($pem_data);
  #or
  $der_data = pem_to_der($pem_data, $password);

Convert PEM to DER representation. Supports also password protected PEM data.

der_to_pem

Since: 0.029

  $pem_data = der_to_pem($der_data, $header_name);
  #or
  $pem_data = der_to_pem($der_data, $header_name, $password);
  #or
  $pem_data = der_to_pem($der_data, $header_name, $passord, $cipher_name);

  # $header_name e.g. "PUBLIC KEY", "RSA PRIVATE KEY" ...
  # $cipher_name e.g. "DES-EDE3-CBC", "AES-256-CBC" (DEFAULT) ...

Convert DER to PEM representation. Supports also password protected PEM data.

random_v4uuid

Since: 0.031

 my $uuid = random_v4uuid();

Returns cryptographically strong Version 4 random UUID: xxxxxxxx-xxxx-4xxx-Yxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx where x is any hexadecimal digit and Y is one of 8, 9, A, B (1000, 1001, 1010, 1011) e.g. f47ac10b-58cc-4372-a567-0e02b2c3d479.

is_v4uuid

Since: 0.031

  if (is_v4uuid($uuid)) {
    ...
  }

Checks the given $uuid string whether it matches V4 UUID format and returns 0 (mismatch) or 1 (match).

increment_octets_le

Since: 0.048

 $octects = increment_octets_le($octets);

Take input $octets as a little-endian big number and return an increment.
