sodium_crypto_authCompute a tag for the message


sodium_crypto_auth(string $message, #[\SensitiveParameter] string $key): string

Symmetric message authentication via sodium_crypto_auth() provides integrity, but not confidentiality.

Unlike with digital signatures (e.g. sodium_crypto_sign_detached()), any party capable of verifying a message is also capable of authenticating their own messages. (Hence, symmetric authentication.)

Here's a quick example on how to use sodium_crypto_auth(); where you have a message that you want to sign, so anyone who can access the *shared* key can confirm that the message hasn't been tampered with.

This is similar to sodium_crypto_sign_detached(), but both signer and verifier have access to the same key.


= sodium_crypto_auth_keygen();

// Person 1, signing

$message = 'Hello';

$signature = sodium_crypto_auth($message, $key);

// Person 2, verifying

$message_valid = sodium_crypto_auth_verify($signature, $message, $key);

if (!
$message_valid) {
'Message has been changed.');
