HMAC_SHA1 Class (console safe)

Implements Keyed-Hashing using SHA1 for message authentication in compliance with RFC 2104 and 2202.

This algorithm has been tested against official test vectors.


class HMAC_SHA1 implements



HMAC_SHA1The constructor for the HMAC_SHA1 takes a key as a parameter.


Final (console safe) Use this function when you are done adding bytes to the HMAC_SHA1 class.
Update (console safe) Use this method to add data with MemoryBlock to the HMAC_SHA1 stream.
Update (console safe) Use this method to add data with string to the HMAC_SHA1 stream.

Test case for a known test vector

Dim key as String
Dim data as String
Dim hmac as HMAC_SHA1
Dim result as String
Dim hexResult as String
Dim i as Integer

key = "Jefe"
data = "what do ya want for nothing?"

// We do this in ASCII because the well known test vectors come in ASCII
key = ConvertEncoding(key,Encodings.ASCII)
data = ConvertEncoding(data,Encodings.ASCII)

hmac = new HMAC_SHA1(key)


result = hmac.Final()

// Convert to HEX
For i = 1 to 20
    hexResult = hexResult + Right("0"+Hex(Asc(Mid(result,i,1))),2)

if hexResult = "effcdf6ae5eb2fa2d27416d5f184df9c259a7c79" then
    return true
    return false
end if
