msys.validate.opendkim.get_sig — Get a signature from a DKIM object


msys.validate.opendkim.get_sig(dkim, num)

dkim: userdata, DKIM type
num: numeric, optional


**Configuration Change. ** This function is available as of version 3.6.

This function gets a signature (DKIM_SIGINFO) from a DKIM object. It requires the opendkim module. The dkim parameter is an array of DKIM_SIGINFO objects returned by the msys.validate.opendkim.verify function. For a description of the DKIM_SIGINFO object see DKIM_SIGINFO. The num parameter is the index of the DKIM_SIGINFO object that you wish to retrieve. The signature index, must be less than the number of signatures in the DKIM object. For a code example see “msys.validate.opendkim.verify example”.

This function returns the DKIM_SIGINFO object and the DKIM status (DKIM_STAT). For a description of the DKIM_SIGINFO object see DKIM_DSIGINFO. DKIM_STAT can be any one of the following values:

  • DKIM_STAT_OK – successful completion

  • DKIM_STAT_BADSIG – signature did not match headers and body

  • DKIM_STAT_NOSIG – no signature present

  • DKIM_STAT_NOKEY – no key available for verifying

  • DKIM_STAT_CANTVRFY – can't get key for verifying

  • DKIM_STAT_SYNTAX – message is not in valid syntax

  • DKIM_STAT_NORESOURCE – resource unavailable

  • DKIM_STAT_INTERNAL – internal error

  • DKIM_STAT_REVOKED – signing key revoked

  • DKIM_STAT_INVALID – invalid parameter(s)

  • DKIM_STAT_NOTIMPLEMENT – function not implemented

  • DKIM_STAT_KEYFAIL – key retrieval failed (try again later)

  • DKIM_STAT_CBREJECT – callback requested message rejection

  • DKIM_STAT_CBTRYAGAIN – callback can't complete (try again later)

  • DKIM_STAT_CBERROR – unspecified callback error

Enable this function with the statement require('msys.validate.opendkim');.
