Struct ring::hmac::Key[][src]

pub struct Key { /* fields omitted */ }

A key to use for HMAC signing.


impl Key[src]

pub fn generate(
    algorithm: Algorithm,
    rng: &dyn SecureRandom
) -> Result<Self, Unspecified>

Generate an HMAC signing key using the given digest algorithm with a random value generated from rng.

The key will be digest_alg.output_len bytes long, based on the recommendation in RFC 2104 Section 3.

pub fn new(algorithm: Algorithm, key_value: &[u8]) -> Self[src]

Construct an HMAC signing key using the given digest algorithm and key value.

key_value should be a value generated using a secure random number generator (e.g. the key_value output by SealingKey::generate_serializable()) or derived from a random key by a key derivation function (e.g. ring::hkdf). In particular, key_value shouldn't be a password.

As specified in RFC 2104, if key_value is shorter than the digest algorithm's block length (as returned by digest::Algorithm::block_len, not the digest length returned by digest::Algorithm::output_len) then it will be padded with zeros. Similarly, if it is longer than the block length then it will be compressed using the digest algorithm.

You should not use keys larger than the digest_alg.block_len because the truncation described above reduces their strength to only digest_alg.output_len * 8 bits. Support for such keys is likely to be removed in a future version of ring.

pub fn algorithm(&self) -> Algorithm[src]

The digest algorithm for the key.
