Mail::DKIM::DkimPolicy - represents a DKIM Sender Signing Practices record
fetch() - lookup a DKIM signing practices record
my $policy = Mail::DKIM::DkimPolicy->fetch(
Protocol => "dns",
Author => 'firstname.lastname@example.org',
new() - construct a default policy object
my $policy = Mail::DKIM::DkimPolicy->new;
apply() - apply the policy to the results of a DKIM verifier
my $result = $policy->apply($dkim_verifier);
The caller must provide an instance of Mail::DKIM::Verifier, one which
has already been fed the message being verified.
Possible results are:
The message is approved by the sender signing policy.
The message is rejected by the sender signing policy.
It can be considered very suspicious.
The message is neither approved nor rejected by the sender signing
policy. It can be considered somewhat suspicious.
flags() - get or set the flags (t=) tag
A colon-separated list of flags. Flag values are:
The entity is testing signing practices, and the Verifier
SHOULD NOT consider a message suspicious based on the record.
The signing practices apply only to the named domain, and
not to subdomains.
is_implied_default_policy() - is this policy implied?
my $is_implied = $policy->is_implied_default_policy;
If you fetch the policy for a particular domain, but that domain
does not have a policy published, then the ``default policy'' is
in effect. Use this method to detect when that happens.
location() - where the policy was fetched from
If the policy is domain-wide, this will be domain where the policy was
If the policy is user-specific, TBD.
If nothing is published for the domain, and the default policy
was returned instead, the location will be "undef".
policy() - get or set the outbound signing policy (dkim=) tag
my $sp = $policy->policy;
Outbound signing policy for the entity. Possible values are:
The default. The entity may sign some or all email.
All mail from the entity is signed.
(The DKIM signature can use any domain, not necessarily matching
the From: address.)
All mail from the entity is signed with Originator signatures.
(The DKIM signature uses a domain matching the From: address.)
signall() - true if policy is all
signall_strict() - true if policy is strict
testing() - checks the testing flag
my $testing = $policy->testing;
If nonzero, the testing flag is set on the signing policy, and the
verify should not consider a message suspicious based on this policy.
If a sender signing policy is not found for a given domain, the
fetch() method should search the parent domains, according to
section 4 of the dkim-ssp Internet Draft.
