PHP | hash_hmac() Function

The hash_hmac() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to generate the keyed hash value using the HMAC method.

Syntax:

string hash_hmac( $algo, $msg, $key, $raw_opt )

Parameters: This function accepts four parameters as mention above and describe below.

  • $algo: It is the required parameter which is used to specify the selected hashing algorithm Ex. “md5”, “sha256”, “sha1”.
  • $msg: This parameter is used to hold the message to be hashed.
  • $key: This parameter is used to specify the shared secret key used for generating the HMAC variant of the message digest.
