Some examples of generating HMACs (SHA256)

Generating HMACs in Python, Node, and PHP

HMACs came up in a discussion at work so I threw together a few quick demos of how to generate them using the built-in API's of a few langs.

var crypto = require("crypto");
var message = "a message which needs an hmac";
var key = "keyser soze";
var hmac_hex = crypto.createHmac("sha256", key).update(message).digest("hex");
console.log(hmac_hex);
<?
$message = "a message which needs an hmac";
$key = "keyser soze";
$hmac_hex = hash_hmac("sha256", $message, $key);
print_r($hmac_hex);
?>
#!/usr/bin/env python
import hmac
import hashlib
message = "a message which needs an hmac"
key = "keyser soze"
hmac_hex = hmac.new(key, message, hashlib.sha256).hexdigest()
print hmac_hex
$ ./run.sh
