Verify Method

Verifies a digital signature using a key.


googlekms.verify(keyName, versionId, isDigest, [callback])


The 'callback' parameter specifies a function which will be called when the operation completes (or an error is encountered). If the 'callback' parameter is not specified, then the method will block and will not return until the operation completes (or an error is encountered).

The callback for this method is defined as:

function(err, data){ }

'err' is the error that occurred. If there was no error, then 'err' is 'null'.

'data' is the value returned by the method.

'err' has 2 properties which hold detailed information:



This method verifies a digital signature using the asymmetric key version specified by KeyName and VersionId. If the signature is successfully verified, this method return true, otherwise it returns false.

The message data is taken from the the specified InputFile or the InputData property. The digital signature data is taken from the specified OutputFile or the OutputData property.

The IsDigest parameter specifies whether the message data is the original message (false) or a message digest (true). When a message digest is supplied, keep in mind that it must be the exact same digest that was used at signing time, regardless of whether it has been recomputed.

Google does not support server-side signature verification, so this method will call GetPublicKey internally and then use the public key to verify the digital signature locally. This functionality is offered as a convenience.
