I need to seal text-files in BizTalk with HMAC256.
Have tried XMLSigner but it only works on xml-files.

Now I need an advice of an easy way to do this.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for your interest in our products.

There exist different ways and formats to sign the files. BizCrypto can help you in most cases but you should know the exact format for the resulting signature (and/or signed file). Then we can help you. HMAC256 is not a standard, it's just a cryptographic scheme.

Sincerely yours

If you don't know the exact resulting format, you are welcome to post the excerpt from the documentation, relevant to your task. We will try to understand it :)

Sincerely yours

Thanks for reply! We have bought BizCrypto and have used the XMLSigner pipeline component to seal xml-documents. SignatuteMethodType=HMAC, SignatureMethod=RSASHA256. However since the receiver don't take xml-format-files we want to do exactly the same sealing but on a text-file. Is there another component in BizCrypto that we can use to sign text-files?

Or do we have to make our own code like in: https://eldos.com/forum/read.php?FID=7&TID=3097 ? In that case it seems that we need the SecureBlackbox product, is that right?

Attached is an example what a file we wanna seal looks like.

Hi Jordy,

The file doesn't seem to contain any HMAC signature. It only contains a number of records, none of which constitutes what might look like a valid HMAC digest.

When sealing XML documents the digest is put inside the document and sent over to the destination together with it. With text files it is not clear how to attach the digest to the file or how to deliver it to the destination if it is sent separately. This should be established before setting off with the implementation.
