HMAC : Java Glossary

HMAC
HMAC (Hashed Message Authentication Code) is a scheme for digitally signing messages using any digest scheme such as Md5 or SHA-256. It is described by RFC (2104). It requires a shared secret key. It is not a public-private key scheme like Oasis. It is one of the schemes Amazon supports for digitally signing transactions to its API (Application Programming Interface) to access the book database.
