aws.signature-package: Amazon Web Services Request Signatures

Description Details Author(s) See Also


Generates Amazon Web Services (AWS) request signatures for RESTful APIs.


This package contains functions mostly intended for developers to use in building API client packages for Amazon Web Services APIs.

The main function of interest is signature_v4_auth, which wraps the other internal functions and returns a named list of elements to be used in authenticating an API request using AWS Signature Version 4.

Another function, signature_v2_auth implements the older, mostly deprecated Version 2 algorithm.

A function that may be of use to end users is use_credentials, which sets the environment variables used by this package based upon values specified in a .aws/credentials file.
