DESCRIPTION
       HMAC is a MAC (message authentication code), i.e. a keyed hash function
       used for message authentication, which is based on a hash function.

       HMAC() computes the message authentication code of the n bytes at d
       using the hash function evp_md and the key key which is key_len bytes
       long.

       It places the result in md (which must have space for the output of the
       hash function, which is no more than EVP_MAX_MD_SIZE bytes).  If md is
       NULL, the digest is placed in a static array.  The size of the output
       is placed in md_len, unless it is NULL. Note: passing a NULL value for
       md  to use the static array is not thread safe.

       evp_md is a message digest such as EVP_sha1(), EVP_ripemd160() etc.
       HMAC does not support variable output length digests such as
       EVP_shake128() and EVP_shake256().

       HMAC_CTX_new() creates a new HMAC_CTX in heap memory.

       HMAC_CTX_reset() zeroes an existing HMAC_CTX and associated resources,
       making it suitable for new computations as if it was newly created with
       reused. ctx must have been created with HMAC_CTX_new() before the first
       use of an HMAC_CTX in this function.

       If HMAC_Init_ex() is called with key NULL and evp_md is not the same as
       the previous digest used by ctx then an error is returned because reuse
       of an existing key with a different digest is not supported.

       HMAC_Init() initializes a HMAC_CTX structure to use the hash function
       evp_md and the key key which is key_len bytes long.

       HMAC_Update() can be called repeatedly with chunks of the message to be
       authenticated (len bytes at data).

       HMAC_Final() places the message authentication code in md, which must
       have space for the hash function output.

       HMAC_CTX_copy() copies all of the internal state from sctx into dctx.

       HMAC_CTX_set_flags() applies the specified flags to the internal
       EVP_MD_CTXs.  These flags have the same meaning as for
       EVP_MD_CTX_set_flags(3).

       HMAC_CTX_get_md() returns the EVP_MD that has previously been set for
       the supplied HMAC_CTX.

       HMAC_size() returns the length in bytes of the underlying hash function
       output.

RETURN VALUES
       HMAC() returns a pointer to the message authentication code or NULL if
       an error occurred.

       HMAC_CTX_new() returns a pointer to a new HMAC_CTX on success or NULL
       if an error occurred.

       HMAC_CTX_reset(), HMAC_Init_ex(), HMAC_Update(), HMAC_Final() and
       HMAC_CTX_copy() return 1 for success or 0 if an error occurred.

       HMAC_CTX_get_md() return the EVP_MD previously set for the supplied
       HMAC_CTX or NULL if no EVP_MD has been set.

       HMAC_size() returns the length in bytes of the underlying hash function
       output or zero on error.

HISTORY
       HMAC_CTX_init() was replaced with HMAC_CTX_reset() in OpenSSL 1.1.0.

       HMAC_CTX_cleanup() existed in OpenSSL before version 1.1.0.
