HMAC is a MAC (message authentication code), i.e. a keyed hash
function used for message authentication, which is based on a hash
HMAC() computes the message authentication code of the B<n> bytes at
B<d> using the hash function B<evp_md> and the key B<key> which is
B<key_len> bytes long.
It places the result in B<md> (which must have space for the output of
the hash function, which is no more than B<EVP_MAX_MD_SIZE> bytes).
If B<md> is NULL, the digest is placed in a static array. The size of
the output is placed in B<md_len>, unless it is B<NULL>. Note: passing a NULL
value for B<md> to use the static array is not thread safe.
B<evp_md> is a message digest such as EVP_sha1(), EVP_ripemd160() etc. HMAC does
not support variable output length digests such as EVP_shake128() and
HMAC_CTX_new() creates a new HMAC_CTX in heap memory.
HMAC_CTX_reset() zeroes an existing B<HMAC_CTX> and associated
resources, making it suitable for new computations as if it was newly
created with HMAC_CTX_new().
HMAC_CTX_free() erases the key and other data from the B<HMAC_CTX>,
releases any associated resources and finally frees the B<HMAC_CTX>
The following functions may be used if the message is not completely
stored in memory:
HMAC_Init_ex() initializes or reuses a B<HMAC_CTX> structure to use the hash
function B<evp_md> and key B<key>. If both are NULL, or if B<key> is NULL
and B<evp_md> is the same as the previous call, then the
existing key is
reused. B<ctx> must have been created with HMAC_CTX_new() before the first use
of an B<HMAC_CTX> in this function.
If HMAC_Init_ex() is called with B<key> NULL and B<evp_md> is not the
same as the previous digest used by B<ctx> then an error is returned
because reuse of an existing key with a different digest is not supported.
HMAC_Init() initializes a B<HMAC_CTX> structure to use the hash
function B<evp_md> and the key B<key> which is B<key_len> bytes
HMAC_Update() can be called repeatedly with chunks of the message to
be authenticated (B<len> bytes at B<data>).
HMAC_Final() places the message authentication code in B<md>, which
must have space for the hash function output.
HMAC_CTX_copy() copies all of the internal state from B<sctx> into B<dctx>.
HMAC_CTX_set_flags() applies the specified flags to the internal EVP_MD_CTXs.
These flags have the same meaning as for L<EVP_MD_CTX_set_flags(3)>.
HMAC_CTX_get_md() returns the EVP_MD that has previously been set for the
HMAC_size() returns the length in bytes of the underlying hash function output.
=head1 RETURN VALUES
HMAC() returns a pointer to the message authentication code or NULL if
an error occurred.
HMAC_CTX_new() returns a pointer to a new B<HMAC_CTX> on success or
B<NULL> if an error occurred.
HMAC_CTX_reset(), HMAC_Init_ex(), HMAC_Update(), HMAC_Final() and
HMAC_CTX_copy() return 1 for success or 0 if an error occurred.
HMAC_CTX_get_md() return the EVP_MD previously set for the supplied HMAC_CTX or
NULL if no EVP_MD has been set.
HMAC_size() returns the length in bytes of the underlying hash function output
or zero on error.
