Need to know the process to use HS256 Symmetric Encryption in JWT generation

I have a requirement to use client secret to JWT signature hash using the HMAC SHA-256 encryption algorithm. I dont see any option in Pega to place the client secret when I select the Symmetric encryption option. The system expects a keystore instance to be created. But in that instance what sort of file type will support the Client Secret and how to generate that file?

Didnt get much insight from the existing topics in Collaboration space. I want to avoid using a function to generate the hash. There must be an alternative. 

Kindly assist.
