Digest in requests

I’m trying to build an ActivityPub server. When I receive a post request on my inbox, the way I verify the hash is simple. I use JSON.stringify(body), then I hash the body, take the digest and verify it’s the same as the one provided in the headers. When I receive follow requests, it works fine. But when I receive a Create activity with a Note object, the digest aren’t the same.

So are you parsing the body as JSON, then converting it back to a string? That’s not guaranteed to give you a result that’s identical to the original body.

Try hashing the original body that you received from the wire, before you parse it.


Yes. Yes. IT WORKS !!! Thank you so much !
