WG: Search only for complet mail address

Markus.Scheffknecht

Hi

 

After rechecking your results I can see the improvements which are made by using the exact command

 

I did search with sks.dnsalias.net

 

http://sks.dnsalias.net:11371/pks/lookup?search=matthias.maier&exact=off&op=vindex

 

does return 7 entries

 

http://sks.dnsalias.net:11371/pks/lookup?search=matthias.maier&exact=on&op=vindex

 

does return 3 entries

 

2nd URL only return the results which have matthias.mayer in the Mail address and not all the ones which includes the two words matthias and mayer.

 

I think the “Too Many Responds“ message isn’t really an error its more a help which stops spammes to use SKS to get mailaddress. Otherwise it would be a good way to get reliable addresses because if someone tries enters his or her public key to a server it probably wont be a fake one. I think it world be better to use a smaller value as default.

 

I also got a new question. Using PKS with the command op=get and options=mx the server returned only the public key. It doesn’t works with SKS. Is there another way to use the interface (like op=rawget which is used by pgp public key server) or is the only change to get the whole return value an parse the key out of the html?

 

Thanks a lot for all the afford

 

Greetings

 

Markus

Right, so this doesn't fix the "Too Many Responses" issue.  If the underlying query has too many answers, then the extra exact filter on top won't change anything.  It's a configuration variable (set by default to 500), but it can be raised.  As for the Matthias.Mayer query, you clearly didn't search sks.dnsalias.net, since that machine has only one entry for "matthias.mayer", and goes to zero when you specify exact.

In any case, this doesn't solve the deep problem of making all exact queries efficient.

Hi,

 

well, I tried but even after using the exact command, it still works to search for domains.

 

Search for "microsoft.com" and the answer will be "Too many response"

Search for "matthias.mayer" and the answer will be 3 responses

 

I know the responses like, gmx.de, yahoo.de , do not work but the problem is still not solved, because it's still possible to look for domains L

Try out the server running at sks.dnsalias.net.  It should have support for exact searches now.  Right now it's case-sensitive, though that's easy to change, or to make configurable.

Hmm.  That's a bug, I guess.  The thing to do when you're looking for exact is to implement a filter of the kind I described.  I'll take a look at it eventually, but it will likely take me a while to get to.  I'll happily accept a patch, though...

Hi,

 

thanx a lot for your idea, I managed to check if the request is a mail address. It needed indeed some changes in the code, I had to use a filter over the results. Problem is: It slows down the request very much, but I guess I have to live with that.

 

But now I got another question:

 

SKS uses more or less the same commands like PKS. Within PKS you got the possibility to extend the request with "&options=exact" which would solve all my problems. While checking the source code I found that there is a parameter like that in SKS (&exact=on). Correct me if I am wrong, but this command doesn't change anything, does it? Will this be used in the next version?

It would require a code change.  Probably the right thing to do is search first using the keywords in the email address, and then filter down to things that match the email address precisely.

Hi,

 

I look for a solution, to search only by an eMail Address.

It should only be possible, to get search results, if you commit a correct MailAddress. It must not be possible

to search by keywords, like gmx.de or web.de. Can I configure this feature or do I have to make changes in the code.

 

Greetings,

 

Markus
