I'm trying to use AWS REST API's (because I can't rely on AWSLink`). The sample C# code from Amazon uses this a lot:

var keyedHash = KeyedHashAlgorithm("HMACSHA256")
keyedHash.Key = someByteArray

But I can't figure out how to translate this to the Wolfram Language. Or maybe I can use SecuredAuthenticationKey directly with AWS? If so I'm not sure what the token endpoints are.

  • $\begingroup$ Can you give an example of what the expected outputs are for each step, including someByteArray? (Please use example data, not actual keys or something 😅) At first glance it looks like you might want Hash, but it doesn't include that specific algorithm. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks Carl, I saw your first link before posting but thought it was missing the point. Looking closer I think I need to try to reproduce what they're doing. I'll get back to you. $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 19, 2019 at 18:33
  • $\begingroup$ You also may want to look at GenerateAsymmetricKeyPair. IIRC in version 12 there will be some updates to this system. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I did see GenerateAsymmetricKeyPair in the prerelease but wasn't sure that was the right path. In any case, the answer is here: mathematica.stackexchange.com/a/167638/27694 I think the first link you suggested (94891...) is outdated. While Mathematica is incredibly backwards compatible something wasn't translating correctly to 11.3 or 12... or something is missing in their post $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 19, 2019 at 19:32
