Digest::BubbleBabble(3User Contributed Perl DocumentatiDigest::BubbleBabble(3)

NAME
       Digest::BubbleBabble - Create bubble-babble fingerprints

SYNOPSIS
	   # Create a fingerprint of a simple string.
	   use Digest::BubbleBabble qw(	bubblebabble );
	   my $fingerprint = bubblebabble( Digest => "Pineapple" );

	   # Create a fingerprint of a SHA-1 hash.
	   use Digest::SHA1 qw(	sha1 );
	   $fingerprint	= bubblebabble(	Digest => sha1("hello")	);

DESCRIPTION
       Digest::BubbleBabble takes a message digest (often generated by either
       of the MD5 or SHA-1 message digest algorithms) and creates a
       fingerprint of that digest in "bubble babble" format.  Bubble babble is
       a method	of representing	a message digest as a string of	"real" words,
       to make the fingerprint easier to remember. The "words" are not
       necessarily real	words, but they	look more like words than a string of
       hex characters.

       Bubble babble fingerprinting is used by the SSH2	suite (and,
       consequently, by	Net::SSH::Perl,	the Perl SSH implementation) to
       display easy-to-remember	key fingerprints.  The key (a DSA or RSA key)
       is converted into a textual form, digested using	Digest::SHA1, and run
       through bubblebabble to create the key fingerprint.

USAGE
       Digest::BubbleBabble conditionally exports one function called
       bubblebabble; to	import the function you	must choose to import it, like
       this:

	   use Digest::BubbleBabble qw(	bubblebabble );

   bubblebabble( Digest	=> $digest )
       Currently takes only one	pair of	arguments, the key of which must be
       Digest, the value of which is the actual	message	digest $digest.	You
       should generate this message digest yourself using either Digest::MD5
       of Digest::SHA1.

       Returns the bubble babble form of the digest.
