[][src]Struct sequoia_openpgp::parse::stream::Verifier

pub struct Verifier<'a, H: VerificationHelper> { /* fields omitted */ }

Verifies a signed OpenPGP message.

Signature verification requires processing the whole message first. Therefore, OpenPGP implementations supporting streaming operations necessarily must output unverified data. This has been a source of problems in the past. To alleviate this, we buffer the message first (up to 25 megabytes of net message data by default, see DEFAULT_BUFFER_SIZE), and verify the signatures if the message fits into our buffer. Nevertheless it is important to treat the data as unverified and untrustworthy until you have seen a positive verification.

For a signature to be considered valid: The signature must have a Signature Creation Time subpacket. The signature must be alive at the signature verification time (the time passed to Verifier::from_reader). The key used to verify the signature must be alive at the signature creation time, not have been soft revoked at the signature creation time, not have ever been hard revoked, and be signing capable at the signature creation time.

impl<'a, H: VerificationHelper> Verifier<'a, H>[src]

pub fn helper_ref(&self) -> &H[src]

Returns a reference to the helper.

pub fn helper_mut(&mut self) -> &mut H[src]

Returns a mutable reference to the helper.

pub fn into_helper(self) -> H[src]

Recovers the helper.

pub fn message_processed(&self) -> bool[src]

Returns true if the whole message has been processed and the verification result is ready.

If the function returns false the message did not fit into the internal buffer and unverified data must be read() from the instance until EOF.
