NAME ^

Net::Amazon::Signature

VERSION ^

Version 0.03

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Net::Amazon::Signature;
 my $sig_maker = Net::Amazon::Signature->new(Service => AWSServiceName);

 my ($signature, $timestamp) = $sig_maker->create({
  Operation => 'GetInfo', 
  SecretAccessKey => 'Your Secret Key Here',
  uri_escape => 1
 });

 # go ahead and make your SOAP or REST call now...

DESCRIPTION ^

This module creates the encrypted signature needed to login to Amazon's Mechanical Turk and Alexa web services and any other web services that Amazon might make in the future that require an encrypted signature, assuming they follow the same convention.

METHODS ^

new

 creates a new Net::Amazon::Signature object
 Takes in a hashref with key Service
 Example
 my $foo = Net::Amazon::Signature->new({Service => 'AWSMechanicalTurkRequester'});

create

 Creates the signature. The method takes in a hashref with two required values:
 * SecretAccessKey - the secret access key that Amazon has assigned to you.
 * Operation - the name of the operation to perform.

 Returns an array with the signature and the timestamp used in creating the authenticated request.

_make_signature

makes the encoded signature give an unencoded string and a hashing key (the secret access id). You do not need to call this function directly. Call create_signature instead.
