  $req->add_ext(Crypt::OpenSSL::PKCS10::NID_subject_alt_name,"email:steve@openssl.org");
  $req->add_custom_ext('1.2.3.3',"My new extension");
  $req->add_ext_final();
  $req->sign();

  print $req->get_pem_pubkey();
  print $req->pubkey_type();
  print $req->get_pem_req();

ABSTRACT

  Crypt::OpenSSL::PKCS10 - Perl extension to OpenSSL's PKCS10 API.

DESCRIPTION

Crypt::OpenSSL::PKCS10 provides the ability to create PKCS10 certificate requests using RSA key pairs.

Class Methods

new
Create a new Crypt::OpenSSL::PKCS10 object by generating a new RSA key pair. There is one optional argument, the key size, which has the default value of 1024 if omitted.
new_from_rsa( $rsa_object )
Create a new Crypt::OpenSSL::PKCS10 object by using key information from a Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA object. Here is an example:
 
  my $rsa = Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA->generate_key(512);
  my $req = Crypt::OpenSSL::PKCS10->new_from_rsa($rsa);
    
new_from_file( $filename )
Create a new Crypt::OpenSSL::PKCS10 object by reading the request and key information from a PEM formatted file. Here is an example:
 
  my $req = Crypt::OpenSSL::PKCS10->new_from_file("CSR.csr");
    

Instance Methods

set_subject($subject, [ $utf8 ])
Sets the subject DN of the request. Note: $subject is expected to be in the format /type0=value0/type1=value1/type2=... where characters may be escaped by \. If $utf8 is non-zero integer, $subject is interpreted as UTF-8 string.
add_ext($nid, $extension)
Adds a new extension to the request. The first argument $nid is one of the exported constants (see below). The second one $extension is a string (for more info read openssl(3)).
 
  $req->add_ext(Crypt::OpenSSL::PKCS10::NID_key_usage,"critical,digitalSignature,keyEncipherment");
  $req->add_ext(Crypt::OpenSSL::PKCS10::NID_ext_key_usage,"serverAuth, nsSGC, msSGC, 1.3.4");
  $req->add_ext(Crypt::OpenSSL::PKCS10::NID_subject_alt_name,"email:steve@openssl.org");
    
add_custom_ext($oid, $desc)
Adds a new custom extension to the request. The value is added as a text string, using ASN.1 encoding rules inherited from the Netscape Comment OID.
 
  $req->add_custom_ext('1.2.3.3',"My new extension");
    
add_custom_ext_raw($oid, $bytes)
Adds a new custom extension to the request. The value is added as a raw DER octet string. Use this if you are packing your own ASN.1 structures and need to set the extension value directly.
 
  $req->add_custom_ext_raw($oid, pack('H*','1E06006100620063')) # BMPString 'abc'
    
add_ext_final()
This must be called after all extensions has been added. It actually copies the extension stack to request structure.
 
  $req->add_ext(Crypt::OpenSSL::PKCS10::NID_subject_alt_name,"email:my@email.org");
  $req->add_ext_final();
    
sign()
This adds the signature to the PKCS10 request.
 
  $req->sign();
    
pubkey_type()
Returns the type of the PKCS10 public key - one of (rsa|dsa|ec).
 
  $req->pubkey_type();
    
get_pubkey()
Returns the PEM encoding of the PKCS10 public key.
 
  $req->get_pubkey();
    
get_pem_req()
Returns the PEM encoding of the PKCS10 request.
 
  $req->get_pem_req();
    
write_pem_req($filename)
Writes the PEM encoding of the PKCS10 request to a given file.
 
  $req->write_pem_req('request.pem');
    
get_pem_pk()
Returns the PEM encoding of the private key.
 
  $req->get_pem_pk();
    
write_pem_pk($filename)
Writes the PEM encoding of the private key to a given file.
 
  $req->write_pem_pk('request.pem');
    
subject()
returns the subject of the PKCS10 request
 
  $subject = $req->subject();
    
keyinfo()
returns the human readable info about the key of the PKCS10 request
 
  $keyinfo = $req->keyinfo();
    

EXPORT

None by default.
On request:
        NID_key_usage NID_subject_alt_name NID_netscape_cert_type NID_netscape_comment
        NID_ext_key_usage

BUGS

If you destroy $req object that is linked to a Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA object, the RSA private key is also freed, thus you can't use latter object anymore. Avoid this:
  my $rsa = Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA->generate_key(512);
  my $req = Crypt::OpenSSL::PKCS10->new_from_rsa($rsa);
  undef $req;
  print $rsa->get_private_key_string();
