Net::DNS::RR::SSHFP - DNS SSHFP resource record
$rr = new Net::DNS::RR('name SSHFP algorithm fptype fp');
) resource records.
The available methods are those inherited from the base class augmented
by the type-specific methods defined in this package.
Use of undocumented package features or direct access to internal data
structures is discouraged and could result in program termination or
other unpredictable behaviour.
$algorithm = $rr->algorithm;
$rr->algorithm( $algorithm );
The 8-bit algorithm number describes the algorithm used to
construct the public key.
$fptype = $rr->fptype;
$rr->fptype( $fptype );
The 8-bit fingerprint type number describes the message-digest
algorithm used to calculate the fingerprint of the public key.
$fp = $rr->fp;
$rr->fp( $fp );
Hexadecimal representation of the fingerprint digest.
$fpbin = $rr->fpbin;
$rr->fpbin( $fpbin );
Returns opaque octet string representing the fingerprint digest.
The babble() method returns the 'BabbleBubble' representation of
the fingerprint if the Digest::BubbleBabble package is available,
otherwise an empty string is returned.
Bubble babble represents a message digest as a string of ``real''
words, to make the fingerprint easier to remember. The ``words''
are not necessarily real words, but they look more like words
than a string of hex characters.
Bubble babble fingerprinting is used by the SSH2 suite (and
consequently by Net::SSH::Perl, the Perl SSH implementation)
to display easy-to-remember key fingerprints.
The 'BubbleBabble' string is appended as a comment when the
string method is called.
