HMAC Calculation - Examples

In Python we can calculate HMAC codes as follows (using the hashlib and hmac libraries):

import hashlib, hmac, binascii
def hmac_sha256(key, msg):
return hmac.new(key, msg, hashlib.sha256).digest()
key = b"12345"
msg = b"sample message"
print(binascii.hexlify(hmac_sha256(key, msg)))

Run the above code example: https://repl.it/@nakov/HMAC-SHA256-Examples.

The above code will calculate and print the expected HMAC code (like in our previous example):

Try the code yourself and play with it.
