SignatureMethod

Specifies the algorithm to use for generating the signature.

 

When a certificate is used

If a certificate is specified, then SignatureMethod is optional and the value for this parameter is derived from the certificate. If specified, it must match the algorithm used by the certificate. Example: rsa-sha256.

 

When --hmac-secret-key is used

When HMACSecretKey is used, then SignatureMethod is mandatory. The value must be one of the supported HMAC algorithms:

hmac-sha256
hmac-sha386
hmac-sha512
hmac-sha1 (discouraged by the specification)

 

Example: hmac-sha256

 

 

COM and .NET

 

Signature: SignatureMethod(string algo)

 

Java

 

Signature: public void setSignatureMethod(string algo)
