DRb::DRbSSLSocket::SSLConfig

SSLConfig handles the needed SSL information for establishing a DRbSSLSocket connection, including generating the X509 / RSA pair.

An instance of this config can be passed to DRb::DRbSSLSocket.new, DRb::DRbSSLSocket.open and DRb::DRbSSLSocket.open_server

See ::new for more details

Constants

DEFAULT

Default values for a SSLConfig instance.

See ::new for more details

Public Class Methods

new(config) click to toggle source

Create a new DRb::DRbSSLSocket::SSLConfig instance

The DRb::DRbSSLSocket will take either a config Hash or an instance of SSLConfg, and will setup the certificate for its session for the configuration. If want it to generate a generic certificate, the bare minimum is to provide the :SSLCertName

Config options

From config Hash:

:SSLCertificate

An instance of OpenSSL::X509::Certificate. If this is not provided, then a generic X509 is generated, with a correspond :SSLPrivateKey

:SSLPrivateKey

A private key instance, like OpenSSL::PKey::RSA. This key must be the key that signed the :SSLCertificate

:SSLClientCA

An OpenSSL::X509::Certificate, or Array of certificates that will used as ClientCAs in the SSL Context

:SSLCACertificatePath

A path to the directory of CA certificates. The certificates must be in PEM format.

:SSLCACertificateFile

A path to a CA certificate file, in PEM format.

:SSLTmpDhCallback

A DH callback. See OpenSSL::SSL::SSLContext.tmp_dh_callback

:SSLVerifyMode

This is the SSL verification mode. See OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_* for available modes. The default is OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_NONE

:SSLVerifyDepth

Number of CA certificates to walk, when verifying a certificate chain.

:SSLVerifyCallback

A callback to be used for additional verification. See OpenSSL::SSL::SSLContext.verify_callback

:SSLCertificateStore

A OpenSSL::X509::Store used for verification of certificates

:SSLCertName

Issuer name for the certificate. This is required when generating the certificate (if :SSLCertificate and :SSLPrivateKey were not given). The value of this is to be an Array of pairs:

[["C", "Raleigh"], ["ST","North Carolina"],
 ["CN","fqdn.example.com"]]

See also OpenSSL::X509::Name

:SSLCertComment

A comment to be used for generating the certificate. The default is “Generated by Ruby/OpenSSL”

Example

These values can be added after the fact, like a Hash.

require 'drb/ssl'
c = DRb::DRbSSLSocket::SSLConfig.new {}
c[:SSLCertificate] =
  OpenSSL::X509::Certificate.new(File.read('mycert.crt'))
c[:SSLPrivateKey] = OpenSSL::PKey::RSA.new(File.read('mycert.key'))
c[:SSLVerifyMode] = OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_PEER
c[:SSLCACertificatePath] = "/etc/ssl/certs/"
c.setup_certificate

or

require 'drb/ssl'
c = DRb::DRbSSLSocket::SSLConfig.new({
        :SSLCertName => [["CN" => DRb::DRbSSLSocket.getservername]]
        })
c.setup_certificate

  @config  = config

Public Instance Methods

[](key) click to toggle source

A convenience method to access the values like a Hash

 
               # File drb/ssl.rb, line 134
def [](key);
  @config[key] || DEFAULT[key]
end
            
accept(tcp) click to toggle source

Accept connection to IO tcp, with context of the current certificate configuration

 
               # File drb/ssl.rb, line 149
def accept(tcp)
  ssl = OpenSSL::SSL::SSLSocket.new(tcp, @ssl_ctx)
  ssl.sync = true
  ssl.accept
  ssl
end
            
connect(tcp) click to toggle source

Connect to IO tcp, with context of the current certificate configuration

 
               # File drb/ssl.rb, line 140
def connect(tcp)

  ssl
end
