NAME

X500::RDN - handle X.500 RDNs (Relative Distinguished Names), parse and format them

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  use X500::RDN;

  my $rdn = new X500::RDN (c=>DE);
  my $c = $rdn->getAttributeValue (c);



DESCRIPTION

This module handles X.500 RDNs (Relative Distinguished Names). This is a supporting module for X500::DN.

    Methods

o $object = new X500::RDN (’type’=>’value’, ’type’=>’value’, ...);

Creates an RDN object from argument pairs, each pair an attribute type and value. With more than one pair as arguments, you will get a multi-valued RDN.

o $object->isMultivalued();

Returns whether the RDN is multi-valued.

o $object->getAttributeTypes();

Returns the RDN’s attribute types, a list of strings.

o $object->getAttributeValue (type);

Returns the RDN attribute’s value.

o $object->getRFC2253String();

Returns the RDN as a string formatted according to RFC 2253 syntax.

o $object->getX500String();

Returns the RDN as a string formatted according to X.500 syntax. NOTE: This is a hack, there is no definition for a X.500 string syntax!?

o $object->getOpenSSLString();

Returns the RDN as a string formatted according to one of openssl’s syntaxes. Croaks on multi-valued RDNs.

    EXPORT

None.
