Safe Stamper Web API parameters signature

From SafeCreativeWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Some API operations require a signature to authenticate the API client.

To calculate the signature, follow this steps:

  • Build a string with all parameters ordered alphabetically, separated by & and without url-encoding
  • Get the bytes of the string, using UTF-8 encoding
  • Get the bytes of your private key, using UTF-8 encoding
  • Calculate the HMAC-SHA1 of the string bytes, with your private key bytes
  • Encode the signature bytes as hexadecimal digit pairs

Example

Parameters:

  • url = https://www.google.com/search?q=Safe+Stamper&gws_rd=cr,ssl
  • sharedkey = 789lq9o6im682tl0m1rej34ls

Private key:

  • 1omnpo704w6u2ad2lxo2wrdm5


String to sign:

sharedkey=789lq9o6im682tl0m1rej34ls&url=https://www.google.com/search?q=Safe+Stamper&gws_rd=cr,ssl
