Net::SSH::Perl::Key::ECDSA - Elliptical Curve DSA key object base class
use Net::SSH::Perl::Key; my $key = Net::SSH::Perl::Key->new('ECDSA521');
Net::SSH::Perl::Key::ECDSA subclasses Net::SSH::Perl::Key to implement the base class of an elliptical curve DSA key object. The underlying implementation is provided by Crypt::PK::ECC, and this class wraps around that module to provide SSH-specific functionality (eg. taking in a Net::SSH::Perl::Buffer blob and transforming it into a key object).
Net::SSH::Perl::Key::ECDSA implements the interface described in the documentation for Net::SSH::Perl::Key. Any differences or additions are described here.
Since this class is a base class, the read_private method reblesses to the subclass based on the key type loaded.
Wraps around Crypt::PK::ECC::sign_message to sign $data using the key $key, then encodes that signature into an SSH-compatible signature blob.
Returns the signature blob.
Given a signature blob $signature and the original signed data $data, attempts to verify the signature using the key $key. This wraps around Crypt::PK::ECC::verify_message to perform the core verification.
$signature should be an SSH-compatible signature blob, as returned from sign; $data should be a string of data, as passed to sign.
Returns true if the verification succeeds, false otherwise.
