Binance Pay API: Authentication

The Binance Pay API uses API keys to authenticate requests. You can view and manage your API keys in the Binance Merchant Admin Portal.

Your API keys carry many privileges, so be sure to keep them secure! Do not share your secret API keys in publicly accessible areas such as GitHub, client-side code, and so forth.

All API requests must be made over HTTPS. Calls made over plain HTTP will fail. API requests without authentication will also fail.

Apply API identity key and API secret key#

  1. Register Merchant Account at Binance
  2. Login merchant account and create new API identity key/API secret key Binance Merchant Admin Portal.

Decryption instructions for merchant data sharing#

Decryption Steps:

  1. Convert the Secret Key to an AES Key: Use the secret key used for order creation via OPEN API to generate an AES key. This is done by hashing the secret key with the SHA-256 algorithm.
  2. Extract IV and Encrypted Data: Base64 decode the shared data string (like payerDetail) to get a byte array. The first 12 bytes represent the initialization vector (IV) and the remaining bytes represent the encrypted data.
  3. Decrypt the Data: Initialize a decryption cipher using the AES key and IV. Decrypt the encrypted data and convert the resulting byte array into a UTF-8 encoded string.

Sample java code

import javax.crypto.Cipher;import javax.crypto.spec.GCMParameterSpec;import javax.crypto.spec.SecretKeySpec;import java.nio.charset.StandardCharsets;import org.apache.commons.codec.binary.Base64;import org.apache.commons.codec.digest.DigestUtils;
class Scratch {
  public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {    String secretKey = "<secretKey>"; // Replace with the secretKey used during the order creation via OPEN API    String sharedData = "<sharedData>"; // Replace with your shared data string
    String decryptedContent = decrypt(sharedData, secretKey);    System.out.println(decryptedContent);  }
  public static String decrypt(String sharedData, String secretKey) throws Exception {    // Convert the secretKey from the order creation via OPEN API to an AES key using SHA-256    byte[] aesKeyBytes = DigestUtils.sha256(secretKey.getBytes(StandardCharsets.UTF_8));
    // Decode Base64 shared data and extract IV and encrypted data    byte[] decodedContent = Base64.decodeBase64(sharedData);    byte[] iv = new byte[12];    byte[] encryptedData = new byte[decodedContent.length - 12];    System.arraycopy(decodedContent, 0, iv, 0, 12);    System.arraycopy(decodedContent, 12, encryptedData, 0, encryptedData.length);
    // Decrypt data using the AES key and IV    SecretKeySpec secretKeySpec = new SecretKeySpec(aesKeyBytes, "AES");    Cipher cipher = Cipher.getInstance("AES/GCM/NoPadding");    cipher.init(Cipher.DECRYPT_MODE, secretKeySpec, new GCMParameterSpec(128, iv));    byte[] decryptedBytes = cipher.doFinal(encryptedData);
    // Convert decrypted byte array back to string    return new String(decryptedBytes, StandardCharsets.UTF_8);  }
