Net::EPP::Protocol - Low-level functions useful for both EPP clients and servers.
#!/usr/bin/perl use Net::EPP::Protocol; use IO::Socket; use strict; # create a socket: my $socket = IO::Socket::INET->new( ... ); # send a frame down the socket: Net::EPP::Protocol->send_frame($socket, $xml); # get a frame from the socket: my $xml = Net::EPP::Protocol->get_frame($socket);
EPP is the Extensible Provisioning Protocol. EPP (defined in RFC 4930) is an application layer client-server protocol for the provisioning and management of objects stored in a shared central repository. Specified in XML, the protocol defines generic object management operations and an extensible framework that maps protocol operations to objects. As of writing, its only well-developed application is the provisioning of Internet domain names, hosts, and related contact details. This module implements functions that are common to both EPP clients and servers that implement the TCP transport as defined in RFC 4934. The main consumer of this module is currently Net::EPP::Client.
$Net::EPP::Protocol::THRESHOLD At least one EPP server implementation sends an unframed plain text error message when a client connects from an unauthorised address. As a result, when the first four bytes of the message are unpacked, the client tries to read and allocate a very large amount of memory. If the apparent frame length received from a server exceeds the value of $Net::EPP::Protocol::THRESHOLD, the "get_frame()" method will croak. The default value is 1GB.
my $xml = Net::EPP::Protocol->get_frame($socket); This method reads a frame from the socket and returns a scalar containing the XML. $socket must be an IO::Handle or one of its subclasses (ie "IO::Socket::*"). If the transmission fails for whatever reason, this method will "croak()", so be sure to enclose it in an "eval()". Net::EPP::Protocol->send_frame($socket, $xml); This method prepares an RFC 4934 compliant EPP frame and transmits it to the remote peer. $socket must be an IO::Handle or one of its subclasses (ie "IO::Socket::*"). If the transmission fails for whatever reason, this method will "croak()", so be sure to enclose it in an "eval()". Otherwise, it will return a true value. my $frame = Net::EPP::Protocol->prep_frame($xml); This method returns the XML frame in "wire format" with the protocol header prepended to it. The return value can be printed directly to an open socket, for example: print STDOUT Net::EPP::Protocol->prep_frame($frame->toString);
