Defined in:

Overview

Utility class for creating AWS signature version 4 signature. This class provides two methods for generating signatures:

  • #sign_request - Computes a signature of the given request, returning the hash of headers that should be applied to the request.

  • #presign_url - Computes a presigned request with an expiration. By default, the body of this request is not signed and the request expires in 15 minutes.

Configuration

To use the signer, you need to specify the service, region, and credentials. The service name is normally the endpoint prefix to an AWS service. For example:

ec2.us-west-1.amazonaws.com => ec2

The region is normally the second portion of the endpoint, following the service name.

ec2.us-west-1.amazonaws.com => us-west-1

It is important to have the correct service and region name, or the signature will be invalid.

Credentials

The signer requires credentials. You can configure the signer with static credentials:

signer = Aws::Sigv4::Signer.new(
  service: 's3',
  region: 'us-east-1',
  # static credentials
  access_key_id: 'akid',
  secret_access_key: 'secret'
)

You can also provide refreshing credentials via the :credentials_provider. If you are using the AWS SDK for Ruby, you can use any of the credential classes:

signer = Aws::Sigv4::Signer.new(
  service: 's3',
  region: 'us-east-1',
  credentials_provider: Aws::InstanceProfileCredentials.new
)

Other AWS SDK for Ruby classes that can be provided via :credentials_provider:

  • Aws::Credentials
  • Aws::SharedCredentials
  • Aws::InstanceProfileCredentials
  • Aws::AssumeRoleCredentials
  • Aws::ECSCredentials

A credential provider is any object that responds to #credentials returning another object that responds to #access_key_id, #secret_access_key, and #session_token.

Instance Method Details

#presign_url(options) ⇒ HTTPS::URI, HTTP::URI

Signs a URL with query authentication. Using query parameters to authenticate requests is useful when you want to express a request entirely in a URL. This method is also referred as presigning a URL.

See Authenticating Requests: Using Query Parameters (AWS Signature Version 4) for more information.

To generate a presigned URL, you must provide a HTTP URI and the http method.

url = signer.presigned_url(
  http_method: 'GET',
  url: 'https://my-bucket.s3-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/key',
  expires_in: 60
)

By default, signatures are valid for 15 minutes. You can specify the number of seconds for the URL to expire in.

url = signer.presigned_url(
  http_method: 'GET',
  url: 'https://my-bucket.s3-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/key',
  expires_in: 3600 # one hour
)

You can provide a hash of headers that you plan to send with the request. Every 'X-Amz-*' header you plan to send with the request must be provided, or the signature is invalid. Other headers are optional, but should be provided for security reasons.

url = signer.presigned_url(
  http_method: 'PUT',
  url: 'https://my-bucket.s3-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/key',
  headers: {
    'X-Amz-Meta-Custom' => 'metadata'
  }
)

Parameters:

  • options (Hash)

    a customizable set of options

Options Hash (options):

  • :http_method (required, String)

    The HTTP request method, e.g. 'GET', 'HEAD', 'PUT', 'POST', 'PATCH', or 'DELETE'.

  • :url (required, String, HTTPS::URI, HTTP::URI)

    The URI to sign.

  • :headers (Hash) — default: {}

    Headers that should be signed and sent along with the request. All x-amz-* headers must be present during signing. Other headers are optional.

  • :expires_in (Integer<Seconds>) — default: 900

    How long the presigned URL should be valid for. Defaults to 15 minutes (900 seconds).

  • :body (optional, String, IO)

    If the :body is set, then a SHA256 hexdigest will be computed of the body. If :body_digest is set, this option is ignored. If neither are set, then the :body_digest will be computed of the empty string.

  • :body_digest (optional, String)

    The SHA256 hexdigest of the request body. If you wish to send the presigned request without signing the body, you can pass 'UNSIGNED-PAYLOAD' as the :body_digest in place of passing :body.

  • :time (Time) — default: Time.now

    Time of the signature. You should only set this value for testing.

Returns:

  • (HTTPS::URI, HTTP::URI)

#sign_request(request) ⇒ Signature

Computes a version 4 signature signature. Returns the resultant signature as a hash of headers to apply to your HTTP request. The given request is not modified.

signature = signer.sign_request(
  http_method: 'PUT',
  url: 'https://domain.com',
  headers: {
    'Abc' => 'xyz',
  },
  body: 'body' # String or IO object
)

# Apply the following hash of headers to your HTTP request
signature.headers['Host']
signature.headers['X-Amz-Date']
signature.headers['X-Amz-Security-Token']
signature.headers['X-Amz-Content-Sha256']
signature.headers['Authorization']

In addition to computing the signature headers, the canonicalized request, string to sign and content sha256 checksum are also available. These values are useful for debugging signature errors returned by AWS.

signature.canonical_request #=> "..."
signature.string_to_sign #=> "..."
signature.content_sha256 #=> "..."

Parameters:

  • request (Hash)

Options Hash (request):

  • :http_method (required, String)

    One of 'GET', 'HEAD', 'PUT', 'POST', 'PATCH', or 'DELETE'

  • :url (required, String, URI::HTTPS, URI::HTTP)

    The request URI. Must be a valid HTTP or HTTPS URI.

  • :headers (optional, Hash) — default: {}

    A hash of headers to sign. If the 'X-Amz-Content-Sha256' header is set, the :body is optional and will not be read.

  • :body (otpional, String, IO) — default: 'X-Amz-Content-Sha256'ody. A sha256 checksum is computed of the body unless the 'X-Amz-Content-Sha256' header is set.

    '') The HTTP request body. A sha256 checksum is computed of the body unless the 'X-Amz-Content-Sha256' header is set.
