nshmackey

Configuration for HMAC key resource.

Name Data Type Permissions Description
name <String> Read-write Key name. This follows the same syntax rules as other expression entity names:

It must begin with an alpha character (A-Z or a-z) or an underscore (_).

The rest of the characters must be alpha, numeric (0-9) or underscores.

It cannot be re or xp (reserved for regular and XPath expressions).

It cannot be an expression reserved word (e.g. SYS or HTTP).

It cannot be used for an existing expression object (HTTP callout, patset, dataset, stringmap, or named expression).

Minimum length = 1
digest <String> Read-write Digest (hash) function to be used in the HMAC computation.

Possible values = MD2, MD4, MD5, SHA1, SHA224, SHA256, SHA384, SHA512
keyvalue <String> Read-write The hex-encoded key to be used in the HMAC computation. The key can be any length (up to a Citrix ADC-imposed maximum of 255 bytes). If the length is less than the digest block size, it will be zero padded up to the block size. If it is greater than the block size, it will be hashed using the digest function to the block size. The block size for each digest is:

MD2 - 16 bytes

MD4 - 16 bytes

MD5 - 16 bytes

SHA1 - 20 bytes

SHA224 - 28 bytes

SHA256 - 32 bytes

SHA384 - 48 bytes

SHA512 - 64 bytes

Note that the key will be encrypted when it it is saved



There is a special key value AUTO which generates a new random key for the specified digest. This kind of key is

intended for use cases where the NetScaler both generates and verifies an HMAC on the same data.
comment <String> Read-write Comments associated with this encryption key.
__count <Double> Read-only count parameter

  • GET
  • COUNT

Some options that you can use for each operations:

  • Getting warnings in response: NITRO allows you to get warnings in an operation by specifying the 'warning' query parameter as 'yes'. For example, to get warnings while connecting to the NetScaler appliance, the URL is as follows:

    http:// <netscaler-ip-address> /nitro/v1/config/login?warning=yes

    If any, the warnings are displayed in the response payload with the HTTP code '209 X-NITRO-WARNING'.

  • Authenticated access for individual NITRO operations: NITRO allows you to logon to the NetScaler appliance to perform individual operations. You can use this option instead of creating a NITRO session (using the login object) and then using that session to perform all operations,

    To do this, you must specify the username and password in the request header of the NITRO request as follows:

    X-NITRO-USER: <username>

    X-NITRO-PASS: <password>

    Note: In such cases, make sure that the request header DOES not include the following:

    Cookie:NITRO_AUTH_TOKEN= <tokenvalue>

Note:

Mandatory parameters are marked in red and placeholder content is marked in green
