NAME
    DOCSIS::ConfigFile - Decodes and encodes DOCSIS config files

VERSION
    0.71

DESCRIPTION
    DOCSIS::ConfigFile is a class which provides functionality to decode and
    encode DOCSIS <http://www.cablelabs.com> (Data over Cable Service
    Interface Specifications) config files.

    This module is used as a layer between any human readable data and the
    binary structure.

    The files are usually served using a TFTP server, after a cable modem
    <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cable_modem> or MTA (Multimedia Terminal
    Adapter) has recevied an IP address from a DHCP server. These files are
    binary encode using a variety of functions, but all the data in the file
    are constructed by TLVs (type-length-value) blocks. These can be nested
    and concatenated.

    See "CONFIGURATION TREE" in DOCSIS::ConfigFile::Syminfo for full set of
    possible parameters. Create an issue
    <https://github.com/jhthorsen/docsis-configfile/issues> if a parameter
    is missing or invalid.

SYNOPSIS
      use DOCSIS::ConfigFile qw( encode_docsis decode_docsis );

      $data = decode_docsis $bytes;

      $bytes = encode_docsis(
                 {
                   GlobalPrivacyEnable => 1,
                   MaxCPE              => 2,
                   NetworkAccess       => 1,
                   BaselinePrivacy => {
                     AuthTimeout       => 10,
                     ReAuthTimeout     => 10,
                     AuthGraceTime     => 600,
                     OperTimeout       => 1,
                     ReKeyTimeout      => 1,
                     TEKGraceTime      => 600,
                     AuthRejectTimeout => 60,
                     SAMapWaitTimeout  => 1,
                     SAMapMaxRetries   => 4
                   },
                   SnmpMibObject => [
                     {oid => "1.3.6.1.4.1.1.77.1.6.1.1.6.2",    INTEGER => 1},
                     {oid => "1.3.6.1.4.1.1429.77.1.6.1.1.6.2", STRING  => "bootfile.bin"}
                   ],
                   VendorSpecific => {
                     id => "0x0011ee",
                     options => [30 => "0xff", 31 => "0x00", 32 => "0x28"]
                   }
                 }
               );

    See also "CONFIGURATION TREE" in DOCSIS::ConfigFile::Syminfo.

OPTIONAL MODULE
    You can install the SNMP.pm module to translate between SNMP OID
    formats. With the module installed, you can define the "SnmpMibObject"
    like the example below, instead of using numeric OIDs:

      encode_docsis(
        {
          SnmpMibObject => [
            {oid => "docsDevNmAccessIp.1",     IPADDRESS => "10.0.0.1"},
            {oid => "docsDevNmAccessIpMask.1", IPADDRESS => "255.255.255.255"},
          ]
        },
      );

FUNCTIONS
  decode_docsis
      $data = decode_docsis($byte_string);
      $data = decode_docsis(\$path_to_file);

    Used to decode a DOCSIS config file into a data structure. The output
    $data can be used as input to "encode_docsis". Note: $data will only
    contain array-refs if the DOCSIS parameter occur more than once.

  encode_docsis
      $byte_string = encode_docsis(\%data, \%args);

    Used to encode a data structure into a DOCSIS config file. Each of the
    keys in $data can either hold a hash- or array-ref. An array-ref is used
    if the same DOCSIS parameter occur multiple times. These two formats
    will result in the same $byte_string:

      # Only one SnmpMibObject
      encode_docsis({
        SnmpMibObject => { # hash-ref
          oid => "1.3.6.1.4.1.1429.77.1.6.1.1.6.2", STRING => "bootfile.bin"
        }
      })

      # Allow one or more SnmpMibObjects
      encode_docsis({
        SnmpMibObject => [ # array-ref of hashes
          { oid => "1.3.6.1.4.1.1429.77.1.6.1.1.6.2", STRING => "bootfile.bin" }
        ]
      })

    Possible %args:

    *   mta_algorithm

        This argument is required when encoding MTA config files. Can be set
        to either empty string, "sha1" or "md5".

    *   shared_secret

        This argument is optional, but will be used as the shared secret
        used to increase security between the cable modem and CMTS.
