NAME

CURLOPT_AWS_SIGV4 - V4 signature

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h>
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_AWS_SIGV4, char *param);

DESCRIPTION

Provides AWS V4 signature authentication on HTTP(S) header.

Pass a char * that is the collection of specific arguments are used for creating outgoing authentication headers. The format of the param option is:

The providers arguments are used for generating some authentication parameters such as "Algorithm", "date", "request type" and "signed headers".
The argument is a geographic area of a resources collection. It is extracted from the host name specified in the URL if omitted.
The argument is a function provided by a cloud. It is extracted from the host name specified in the URL if omitted.

NOTE: This call set CURLOPT_HTTPAUTH(3) to CURLAUTH_AWS_SIGV4. Calling CURLOPT_HTTPAUTH(3) with CURLAUTH_AWS_SIGV4 is the same as calling this with "aws:amz" in parameter.

Example with "Test:Try", when curl will do the algorithm, it will generate "TEST-HMAC-SHA256" for "Algorithm", "x-try-date" and "X-Try-Date" for "date", "test4_request" for "request type", "SignedHeaders=content-type;host;x-try-date" for "signed headers"

If you use just "test", instead of "test:try", test will be use for every strings generated

DEFAULT

By default, the value of this parameter is NULL. Calling CURLOPT_HTTPAUTH(3) with CURLAUTH_AWS_SIGV4 is the same as calling this with "aws:amz" in parameter.
