       Net::OpenID::VerifiedIdentity - Object representing a verified OpenID identity


       version 1.18


         use Net::OpenID::Consumer;
         my $csr = Net::OpenID::Consumer->new;
         my $vident = $csr->verified_identity
           or die $csr->err;

         my $url = $vident->url;


       After Net::OpenID::Consumer verifies a user's identity and does the signature checks, it
       gives you this Net::OpenID::VerifiedIdentity object, from which you can learn more about
       the user.


           Returns the URL (as a scalar) that was verified.  (Remember, an OpenID is just a URL.)

           Returns the a short "display form" of the verified URL using a couple brain-dead
           patterns.  For instance, the identity "" will map to "bob
           []" The www. prefix is removed, as well as http, and a username is looked for,
           in either the tilde form, or "/users/USERNAME" or "/members/USERNAME".  If the path
           component is empty or just "/", then the display form is just the hostname, so
           "" is just "".

           Suggestions for improving this function are welcome, but you'll probably get more
           satisfying results if you make use of the data returned by the Simple Registration
           (SREG) extension, which allows the user to choose a preferred nickname to use on your

           Return the fields from the given extension namespace, if any, that were included in
           the assertion request. The fields are returned in a hashref.

           In most cases you'll probably want to use signed_extension_fields instead, to avoid
           attacks where a man-in-the-middle alters the extension fields in transit.

           Note that for OpenID 1.1 transactions only Simple Registration (SREG) 1.1 is

           The same as extension_fields except that only fields that were signed as part of the
           assertion are included in the returned hashref. For example, if you included a Simple
           Registration request in your initial message, you might fetch the results (if any)
           like this:

               $sreg = $vident->signed_extension_fields(

           An important gotcha to bear in mind is that for OpenID 2.0 responses no extension
           fields can be considered signed unless the corresponding extension namespace
           declaration is also signed. If that is not the case, this method will behave as if no
           extension fields for that URI were signed.

           Returns the absolute URLs (as scalars) of the user's RSS, Atom, and FOAF XML documents
           that were also found in their HTML's <head> section.  The short versions will only
           return a URL if they're below the root URL that was verified.  If you want to get at
           the user's declared rss/atom/foaf, even if it's on a different host or parent
           directory, use the declared_* versions, which don't have the additional checks.

           2005-05-24:  A future module will take a Net::OpenID::VerifiedIdentity object and
           create an OpenID profile object so you don't have to manually parse all those
           documents to get profile information.

           Returns the value of the "foaf:maker" meta tag, if declared.
