NAME

       Web::ID::Certificate::Generator - role for Web::ID::Certificate

SYNOPSIS

        use Web::ID::Certificate::Generator;

        my %options = (
          cert_output       => '/home/alice/webid.p12',
          passphrase        => 's3cr3t s0urc3',
          rdf_output        => '/home/alice/public_html/foaf.rdf',
          subject_alt_names => [
            Web::ID::SAN::URI->new(
              value => 'http://example.com/~alice/foaf.rdf#me',
            ),
            Web::ID::SAN::Email->new(
              value => 'alice@example.com',
            ),
          ],
          subject_name      => 'Alice Jones',
          subject_locality  => 'Lewes',
          subject_region    => 'East Sussex',
          subject_country   => 'GB',   # ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code
        );

        my $cert = Web::ID::Certificate->generate(%options);

DESCRIPTION

       This is a role that may be applied to Web::ID::Certificate. It is not consumed by
       Web::ID::Certificate by default as I was trying to avoid tainting the class with the
       horror that's found in this role.

       The "import" routine of this package applies the role to Web::ID::Certificate, so it is
       sufficient to do:

        use Web::ID::Certificate::Generator;

       You don't need to muck around with "apply_all_roles" yourself.

   Constructor
       "generate(%options)"
           Generates a brand new WebID-enabled certificate.

   Options
       The following options can be passed to "generator"

       ·   "cert_output"

           A passphrase-protected PKCS12 certificate file is generated as part of the certificate
           generation process. The PKCS12 file is what you'd typically import into a browser.

           You can pass a scalar reference, in which case the PKCS12 data will be written to that
           scalar; or a file handle or string file name.

           This is a required option.

       ·   "passphrase"

           The password for the PKCS12 file.

           This is a required option.

       ·   "rdf_output"

           RDF data is also generated as part of the certificate generation process.

           Again a file handle or string file name can be passed, or an RDF::Trine::Model.

           This is a required option.

       ·   "subject_alt_names"

           List of Web::ID::SAN objects to generate the certificate's subjectAltNames field. You
           want at least one Web::ID::SAN::URI in there.

           This is a required option.

       ·   "subject_name"

           The name of the person who will hold the certificate. (e.g. "Alice Smith".)

           This is a required option.

       ·   "subject_org"

           The certificate holder's organisation.

           Not required.

       ·   "subject_locality"

           The locality (e.g. city) of the certificate holder's address.

           Not required.

       ·   "subject_region"

           The region (e.g. state or county) of the certificate holder's address.

           Not required.

       ·   "subject_country"

           Two letter ISO code for the country of the certificate holder's address.

           Not required.

       ·   "openssl_path"

           The path to the OpenSSL binary. Yes that's right, this role calls the OpenSSL binary
           via "system" calls. Defaults to automatic discovery via Web::ID::Util::FindOpenSSL.

       ·   "key_size"

           Key size in bits. Defaults to 1024. Bigger keys are more secure. Keys bigger than 2048
           bits will take a ridiculously long time to generate.  Keys less than 512 bits are
           pretty poor.

       ·   "not_after"

           Date when the certificate should expire, as a DateTime object.  Defaults to 365 days.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

       Generating the private key results in shedloads of nasty crud being spewed out on STDERR.

       Please report any bugs to <http://rt.cpan.org/Dist/Display.html?Queue=Web-ID>.
