Keyed-Hashing Message Authentication
Jump to user comments
messaging, cryptography (HMAC) A mechanism for message
authentication using cryptographic hash functions. HMAC
can be used with any iterative cryptographic hash function,
e.g., MD5, SHA-1, in combination with a secret shared key.
The cryptographic strength of HMAC depends on the properties
of the underlying hash function.
