NAME

Web::ID::Certificate - an x509 certificate

SYNOPSIS

 my $cert = Web::ID::Certificate->new(pem => $pem_encoded_x509);
 foreach (@{ $cert->subject_alt_names })
 {
   say "SAN: ", $_->type, " = ", $_->value;
 }

DESCRIPTION

Constructor

new

Standard Moose-style constructor. (This class uses Any::Moose.)

Attributes

pem

A PEM-encoded string for the certificate.

This is usually the only attribute you want to pass to the constructor. Allow the others to be built automatically.

public_key

A Web::ID::RSAKey object.

fingerprint

A string identifier for the certificate. It is the lower-cased hexadecimal SHA1 hash of the DER-encoded certificate.

This is not used in WebID authentication, but may be used as an identifier for the certificate if you need to keep it in a cache.

not_before

DateTime object indicating when the certificate started (or will start) to be valid.

not_after

DateTime object indicating when the certificate will cease (or has ceased) to be valid.

subject_alt_names

An arrayref containing a list of subject alt names (Web::ID::SAN objects) associated with the certificate. These are sorted in the order they'll be tried for WebID authentication.

san_factory

A coderef used for building Web::ID::SAN objects. It's very unlikely you need to play with this - the default is probably OK. But changing this is "supported" (in so much as any of this is supported).

The coderef is passed a hash (not hashref) along the lines of:

 (
   type  => 'uniformResourceIdentifier',
   value => 'http://example.com/id/alice',
 )

Methods

timely

Checks not_before and not_after against the current system time to indicate whether the certifixate is temporally valid. Returns a boolean.

You can optionally pass it a DateTime object to use instead of the current system time.

exponent

Delegated to the public_key attribute.

modulus

Delegated to the public_key attribute.
