Mail::DKIM::AuthorDomainPolicy(User Contributed Perl DocumentatiMail::DKIM::AuthorDomainPolicy(3)

NAME
       Mail::DKIM::AuthorDomainPolicy - represents an Author Domain Signing Practices (ADSP)
       record

DESCRIPTION
       The Author Domain Signing Policies (ADSP) record can be published by any domain to help a
       receiver know what to do when it encounters an unsigned message claiming to originate from
       that domain.

       The record is published as a DNS TXT record at _adsp._domainkey.DOMAIN where DOMAIN is the
       domain of the message's "From" address.

       More details about this record can be found by reading the specification itself at
       <http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5617>.

CONSTRUCTORS
   fetch()
       Lookup an ADSP record in DNS.

	 my $policy = Mail::DKIM::AuthorDomainPolicy->fetch(
		   Protocol => "dns",
		   Author => 'jsmith@example.org',
		 );

       If the ADSP record is found and appears to be valid, an object containing that record's
       information will be constructed and returned.  If the ADSP record is blank or simply does
       not exist, an object representing the default policy will be returned instead.  (See also
       "is_implied_default_policy()".)	If a DNS error occurs (e.g. SERVFAIL or time-out), this
       method will "die".

   new()
       Construct a default policy object.

	 my $policy = Mail::DKIM::AuthorDomainPolicy->new;

   parse()
       Construct an ADSP record from a string.

	 my $policy = Mail::DKIM::AuthorDomainPolicy->parse(
		 String => "dkim=all",
		 Domain => "aaa.example",
	     );

METHODS
   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:

       accept
	   The message is approved by the sender signing policy.

       reject
	   The message is rejected by the sender signing policy.  It can be considered very
	   suspicious.

       neutral
	   The message is neither approved nor rejected by the sender signing policy. It can be
	   considered somewhat suspicious.

       Note: in the future, these values may become:
	none - no ADSP record is published
	pass - a passing signature is present
	fail - ADSP record is "all" and no passing signature is found
	discard - ADSP record is "discardable" and no passing signature is found
	nxdomain - the DNS domain does not exist
	temperror - transient error occurred
	permerror - non-transient error occurred

   is_implied_default_policy()
       Tells whether 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()
       Tells where the policy was fetched from.

       If the policy is domain-wide, this will be domain where the policy was published.

       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:

       "unknown"
	   The default. The entity may sign some or all email.

       "all"
	   All mail from the domain is expected to be signed, using a valid Author signature, but
	   the author does not suggest discarding mail without a valid signature.

       "discardable"
	   All mail from the domain is expected to be signed, using a valid Author signature, and
	   the author is so confident that non-signed mail claiming to be from this domain can be
	   automatically discarded by the recipient's mail server.

       "NXDOMAIN"
	   The domain is out of scope, i.e., the domain does not exist in the DNS.

   signall()
       True if policy is "all".

   signall_discardable()
       True if policy is "strict".

BUGS
       o   Section 4.3 of the specification says to perform a query on the domain itself just to
	   see if it exists. This class is not currently doing that, i.e. it might report
	   NXDOMAIN because _adsp._domainkey.example.org is nonexistent, but it should not be
	   treated the same as example.org being nonexistent.
