NAME
       HMAC, HMAC_Init, HMAC_Update, HMAC_Final, HMAC_cleanup - HMAC message
       authentication code

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/hmac.h>

	unsigned char *HMAC(const EVP_MD *evp_md, const void *key,
		      int key_len, const unsigned char *d, int n,
		      unsigned char *md, unsigned int *md_len);

	void HMAC_CTX_init(HMAC_CTX *ctx);

	void HMAC_Init(HMAC_CTX *ctx, const void *key, int key_len,
		      const EVP_MD *md);
	void HMAC_Init_ex(HMAC_CTX *ctx, const void *key, int key_len,
			  const EVP_MD *md);
	void HMAC_Update(HMAC_CTX *ctx, const unsigned char *data, int len);
	void HMAC_Final(HMAC_CTX *ctx, unsigned char *md, unsigned int *len);

	void HMAC_CTX_cleanup(HMAC_CTX *ctx);
	void HMAC_cleanup(HMAC_CTX *ctx);

DESCRIPTION
       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 - fail‐
       ure 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.

RETURN VALUES
       HMAC() returns a pointer to the message authentication code.

       HMAC_CTX_init(), HMAC_Init_ex(), HMAC_Update(), HMAC_Final() and
       HMAC_CTX_cleanup() do not return values.
