I just came across a web-page about supplying private key from OpenLayers to Google Maps for business API. But checking on the Google Maps API page, it is asking for signatures which is hash of the query with a secret key for each request. I think it is for maps image requests also, which is contradicting with what the web-page says.

Can the Google Maps for business API be used with OpenLayers and, if so, then how?
