CentOS 7.0 - man page for mail::dkim::dkpolicy (centos section 3)

Mail::DKIM::DkPolicy(3)        User Contributed Perl Documentation	  Mail::DKIM::DkPolicy(3)

       Mail::DKIM::DkPolicy - represents a DomainKeys Sender Signing Policy record

       DomainKeys sender signing policies are described in RFC4870(historical). It is a record
       published in the message sender's (i.e. the person who transmitted the message) DNS that
       describes how they sign messages.

   fetch() - fetch a sender signing policy from DNS
	 my $policy = Mail::DKIM::DkPolicy->fetch(
			  Protocol => "dns",
			  Sender => 'joe@example.org',

       The following named arguments are accepted:

	   always specify "dns"

	   the "author" of the message for which policy is being checked.  This is the first
	   email address in the "From" header.	According to RFC 2822, section 3.6.2, the "From"
	   header lists who is responsible for writing the message.

	   the "sender" of the message for which policy is being checked.  This is the first
	   email address in the "Sender" header, or if there is not a "Sender" header, the "From"
	   header.  According to RFC 2822, section 3.6.2, the "Sender" header lists who is
	   responsible for transmitting the message.

       Depending on what type of policy is being checked, both the Sender and Author fields may
       need to be specified.

       If a DNS error or timeout occurs, an exception is thrown.

       Otherwise, a policy object of some sort will be returned.  If no policy is actually
       published, then the "default policy" will be returned.  To check when this happens, use

	 my $is_default = $policy->is_implied_default_policy;

   new() - construct a default policy object
	 my $policy = Mail::DKIM::DkPolicy->new;

   parse() - gets a policy object by parsing a string
	 my $policy = Mail::DKIM::DkPolicy->parse(
			  String => "o=~; t=y"

   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.

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

   flags() - get or set the flags (t=) tag
       A vertical-bar separated list of flags.

   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

   location() - where the policy was fetched from
       DomainKeys policies only have per-domain policies, so this will be the domain where the
       policy was published.

       If nothing is published for the domain, and the default policy was returned instead, the
       location will be "undef".

   note() - get or set the human readable notes (n=) tag
       Human readable notes regarding the record. Undef if no notes specified.

   policy() - get or set the outbound signing policy (o=) tag
	 my $sp = $policy->policy;

       Outbound signing policy for the entity. Possible values are:

       "~" The default. The domain may sign some (but not all) email.

       "-" The domain signs all email.

   signall() - true if policy is "-"
   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.
