Build Status


This module implements the various components of the DKIM, ARC, and DomainKeys message-signing and verifying standards for Internet mail. It currently tries to implement these specifications: * RFC4871, for DKIM * RFC4870, for DomainKeys *, for ARC

With each release, this module is getting bigger, but don't worry, most of the growth is from having more things to test with `make test'.


To install this module type the following:

perl Makefile.PL make make test make install


This module requires these other modules and libraries:

Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA Crypt::PK::Ed25519 Digest::SHA Mail::Address (part of the MailTools package) MIME::Base64 Net::DNS


Decide whether you want to "sign" or "verify" messages. To sign, see the Mail::DKIM::Signer module. To verify, see the Mail::DKIM::Verifier module.

If you want to sign or verify ARC headers ( then look at Mail::DKIM::ARC::Signer and Mail::DKIM::ARC::Verifier


Some details of the specification are not completely implemented. See the TODO file for a list of things I know about.

Please report bugs to the CPAN RT or github issue tracker.

If `make test' fails, please include the versions of your installed Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA module and OpenSSL libraries.
