1. API Description

Domain name for API request: kms.tencentcloudapi.com.

This API is used to generate a signature with an asymmetric key.
Note that only when KeyUsage is ASYMMETRIC_SIGN_VERIFY_${ALGORITHM} (e.g., ASYMMETRIC_SIGN_VERIFY_SM2 and ASYMMETRIC_SIGN_VERIFY_ECC), the key can be used for signing.

A maximum of 100 requests can be initiated per second for this API.

We recommend you to use API Explorer
Try it
API Explorer provides a range of capabilities, including online call, signature authentication, SDK code generation, and API quick search. It enables you to view the request, response, and auto-generated examples.

2. Input Parameters

The following request parameter list only provides API request parameters and some common parameters. For the complete common parameter list, see Common Request Parameters.

Parameter Name Required Type Description
Action Yes String Common Params. The value used for this API: SignByAsymmetricKey.
Version Yes String Common Params. The value used for this API: 2019-01-18.
Region No String Common Params. This parameter is not required for this API.
Algorithm Yes String Signature algorithm. The valid values include SM2DSA, ECC_P256_R1, RSA_PSS_SHA_256, and RSA_PKCS1_SHA_256, etc. You can get a full list of supported algorithms using the ListAlgorithms API.
Message Yes String Full message or message abstract. Before Base64 encoding, an original message can contain up to 4,096 bytes while a message abstract must be 32 bytes.
KeyId Yes String Unique ID of a key
MessageType No String Message type. Valid values: RAW (indicating an original message; used by default if the parameter is not passed in) and DIGEST.

3. Output Parameters

Parameter Name Type Description
Signature String Base64-encoded signature
RequestId String The unique request ID, which is returned for each request. RequestId is required for locating a problem.
