NAME

Net::Amazon::Signature::V4 - Implements the Amazon Web Services signature version 4, AWS4-HMAC-SHA256

VERSION

Version 0.21

SYNOPSIS

    use Net::Amazon::Signature::V4;

    my $sig = Net::Amazon::Signature::V4->new( $access_key_id, $secret, $endpoint, $service );
    my $req = HTTP::Request->parse( $request_string );
    my $signed_req = $sig->sign( $req );
    ...

DESCRIPTION

This module signs an HTTP::Request to Amazon Web Services by appending an Authorization header. Amazon Web Services signature version 4, AWS4-HMAC-SHA256, is used.

The primary purpose of this module is to be used by Net::Amazon::Glacier.

METHODS

new

    my $sig = Net::Amazon::Signature::V4->new( $access_key_id, $secret, $endpoint, $service );
    my $sig = Net::Amazon::Signature::V4->new({
        access_key_id => $access_key_id,
        secret        => $secret,
        endpoint      => $endpoint,
        service       => $service,
    });

Constructs the signature object, which is used to sign requests.

Note that the access key ID is an alphanumeric string, not your account ID. The endpoint could be "eu-west-1", and the service could be "glacier".

Since version 0.20, parameters can be passed in a hashref. The keys access_key_id, secret, endpoint, and service are required. security_token, if passed, will be applied to each signed request as the X-Amz-Security-Token header.

sign

    my $signed_request = $sig->sign( $request );

Signs a request with your credentials by appending the Authorization header. $request should be an HTTP::Request. The signed request is returned.
