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

Mail::DKIM::SignerPolicy - determines signing parameters for a message

A "signer policy" is an object, class, or function used by Mail::DKIM::Signer to determine what signatures to add to the current message. To take advantage of signer policies, create your own Perl class that extends the Mail::DKIM::SignerPolicy class. The only method you need to implement is the apply() method.
The apply() method takes as a parameter the Mail::DKIM::Signer object. Using this object, it can determine some properties of the message (e.g. what the From: address or Sender: address is). Then it sets various signer properties as desired. The apply() method should return a nonzero value if the message should be signed. If a false value is returned, then the message is "skipped" (i.e. not signed).
Here is an example of a policy that always returns the same values:
  package MySignerPolicy;
  use base 'Mail::DKIM::SignerPolicy';
  sub apply
  {
      my $self = shift;
      my $signer = shift;
  
      $signer->algorithm('rsa-sha1');
      $signer->method('relaxed');
      $signer->domain('example.org');
      $signer->selector('selector1');
      $signer->key_file('private.key');
  
      return 1;
  }
To use this policy, simply specify the name of the class as the Policy parameter...
  my $dkim = Mail::DKIM::Signer->new(
                  Policy => 'MySignerPolicy',
             );

You can also have the policy actually build the signature for the Signer to use. To do this, call the signer's add_signature() method from within your apply() callback. E.g.,
  sub apply
  {
      my $self = shift;
      my $signer = shift;
  
      $signer->add_signature(
              new Mail::DKIM::Signature(
                  Algorithm => $signer->algorithm,
                  Method => $signer->method,
                  Headers => $signer->headers,
                  Domain => $signer->domain,
                  Selector => $signer->selector,
              ));
      return;
  }
Again, if you do not want any signatures, return zero or undef. If you use add_signature() to create a signature, the default signature will not be created, even if you return nonzero.
