HMAC is a MAC (message authentication code), i.e. a keyed
hash function used for message authentication, which is
based on a hash function.
HMAC() computes the message authentication code of the n
bytes at d using the hash function evp_md and the key key
which is key_len bytes long.
It places the result in md (which must have space for the
output of the hash function, which is no more than
EVP_MAX_MD_SIZE bytes). If md is NULL, the digest is
placed in a static array. The size of the output is
placed in md_len, unless it is NULL.
evp_md can be EVP_sha1(), EVP_ripemd160() etc. key and
evp_md may be NULL if a key and hash function have been
set in a previous call to HMAC_Init() for that HMAC_CTX.
HMAC_CTX_init() initialises a HMAC_CTX before first use.
It must be called.
HMAC_CTX_cleanup() erases the key and other data from the
HMAC_CTX and releases any associated resources. It must be
called when an HMAC_CTX is no longer required.
HMAC_cleanup() is an alias for HMAC_CTX_cleanup() included
for back compatibility with 0.9.6b, it is deprecated.
The following functions may be used if the message is not
completely stored in memory:
HMAC_Init() initializes a HMAC_CTX structure to use the
hash function evp_md and the key key which is key_len
bytes long. It is deprecated and only included for backward
compatibility with OpenSSL 0.9.6b.
HMAC_Init_ex() initializes or reuses a HMAC_CTX structure
to use the function evp_md and key key. Either can be
NULL, in which case the existing one will be reused.
HMAC_CTX_init() must have been called before the first use
of an HMAC_CTX in this function. N.B. HMAC_Init() had this
undocumented behaviour in previous versions of OpenSSL -
failure to switch to HMAC_Init_ex() in programs that
expect it will cause them to stop working.
HMAC_Update() can be called repeatedly with chunks of the
message to be authenticated (len bytes at data).
HMAC_Final() places the message authentication code in md,
which must have space for the hash function output.
HMAC() returns a pointer to the message authentication
HMAC_CTX_init(), HMAC_Init_ex(), HMAC_Update(),
HMAC_Final() and HMAC_CTX_cleanup() do not return values.
HMAC(), HMAC_Init(), HMAC_Update(), HMAC_Final() and
HMAC_cleanup() are available since SSLeay 0.9.0.
HMAC_CTX_init(), HMAC_Init_ex() and HMAC_CTX_cleanup() are
available since OpenSSL 0.9.7.
