SYNOPSIS

 my $f = Mail::Message::Field->new('DKIM-Signature' => '...');

 my $g = Mail::Message::Field->new('DKIM-Signature');
 $g->add...

 

DESCRIPTION

Decode the information contained in a DKIM header. You can also construct DKIM-Signature headers this way. However, verification and signing is not yet implemented.

This implementation is based on RFC6376.

DKIM-Signature tags

The tag methods return the tag-value content without any validation or modification. For many situations, the actual content does not need (expensive) validation and interpretation.

$obj->tagAgentID()
The Agent or User Identifier (AUID). Defaults to @$domain
$obj->tagAlgorithm()
Signature algorithm. Should be rsa-sha(1|256): check before use. Required.
$obj->tagBodyLength()
The number of octets which where used to calculate the hash. By default, the whole body was used.
$obj->tagC14N()
The canonicalization method used. Defaults to 'simple/simple'.
$obj->tagDomain()
The sub-domain (SDID) which claims responsibility for this signature. Required.
$obj->tagExpires()
The timestamp when the signature will expire. Recommended.
$obj->tagExtract()
Some headers from the original message packed together.
$obj->tagQueryMethods()
A colon-separated list of method which can be used to retrieve the public key. The default is ``dns/txt'' (currently the only valid option)
$obj->tagSelector()
The selector subdividing the $domain tag. Required.
$obj->tagSignData()
$obj->tagSignature()
Message signature in base64, with whitespaces removed. Required.
$obj->tagSignedHeaders()
The colon separated list of headers which need to be included in the signature. Required.
$obj->tagTimestamp()
When the signature was created in UNIX-like seconds (since 1970). Recommended.
$obj->tagVersion()
Signature header syntax version (usually 1)

DIAGNOSTICS

Warning: Field content is not numerical: $content
The numeric value of a field is requested (for instance the "Lines" or "Content-Length" fields should be numerical), however the data contains weird characters.
Warning: Illegal character in charset '$charset'
The field is created with an utf8 string which only contains data from the specified character set. However, that character set can never be a valid name because it contains characters which are not permitted.
Warning: Illegal character in field name $name
A new field is being created which does contain characters not permitted by the RFCs. Using this field in messages may break other e-mail clients or transfer agents, and therefore mutulate or extinguish your message.
Warning: Illegal character in language '$lang'
The field is created with data which is specified to be in a certain language, however, the name of the language cannot be valid: it contains characters which are not permitted by the RFCs.
Warning: Illegal encoding '$encoding', used 'q'
The RFCs only permit base64 ("b " or "B ") or quoted-printable ("q" or "Q") encoding. Other than these four options are illegal.
Error: No attributes for DKIM headers
Is is not possible to add attributes to this field.
Error: Package $package does not implement $method.
Fatal error: the specific package (or one of its superclasses) does not implement this method where it should. This message means that some other related classes do implement this method however the class at hand does not. Probably you should investigate this and probably inform the author of the package.
