NAME

CGI::ACL - Decide whether to allow a client to run this script

VERSION

Version 0.05

SYNOPSIS

Does what it says on the tin.

    use CGI::Lingua;
    use CGI::ACL;

    my $acl = CGI::ACL->new();
    # ...
    my $denied = $acl->all_denied(info => CGI::Lingua->new(supported => 'en'));

SUBROUTINES/METHODS

new

Creates a CGI::ACL object.

allow_ip

Give an IP (or CIDR) that we allow to connect to us

    use CGI::ACL;

    # Allow Google to connect to us
    my $acl = CGI::ACL->new()->allow_ip(ip => '8.35.80.39');

deny_country

Give a country, or a reference to a list of countries, that we will not allow to access us

    use CGI::ACL;

    # Don't allow the UK to connect to us
    my $acl = CGI::ACL->new()->deny_country('GB');

    # Don't allow any countries to connect to us (a sort of 'default deny')
    my $acl = CGI::ACL->new()->deny_country('*');

allow_country

Give a country, or a reference to a list of countries, that we will allow to access us

    use CGI::ACL;

    # Allow only the UK and US to connect to us
    my @allow_list = ('GB', 'US');
    my $acl = CGI::ACL->new()->deny_country('*')->allow_country(country => \@allow_list);

all_denied

If any of the restrictions return false then return false, which should allow access. Note that by default localhost isn't allowed access, call allow_ip('127.0.0.1') to enable it.

    use CGI::Lingua;
    use CGI::ACL;

    # Allow Google to connect to us
    my $acl = CGI::ACL->new()->allow_ip(ip => '8.35.80.39');

    if($acl->all_denied()) {
        print 'You are not allowed to view this site';
        return;
    }

    $acl = CGI::ACL->new()->deny_country(country => 'br');

    if($acl->all_denied(lingua => CGI::Lingua->new(supported => ['en']))) {
        print 'Brazilians cannot view this site for now';
        return;
    }
