Secure your Julia APIs with JWT.

Usage

For HMAC RSA Algorithms

Encode:

import JSONWebTokens
claims_dict = Dict( "sub" => "1234567890", "name" => "John Doe", "iat" => 1516239022)
encoding = JSONWebTokens.HS256("secretkey") # select HS256 encoding
jwt = JSONWebTokens.encode(encoding, claims_dict)
"eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJuYW1lIjoiSm9obiBEb2UiLCJzdWIiOiIxMjM0NTY3ODkwIiwiaWF0IjoxNTE2MjM5MDIyfQ.TjUTSL0RQayQG-y_h2Tl3FmAgxhC0fYtmeiU7jnMdXY"

Decode:

JSONWebTokens.decode(encoding, jwt)
Dict{String,Any} with 3 entries:
  "name" => "John Doe"
  "sub"  => "1234567890"
  "iat"  => 1516239022

For RSASSA RSA Algorithms

First, generate public and private keys. You can use openssl.

$ openssl genrsa -out private.pem 2048
$ openssl rsa -in private.pem -out public.pem -outform PEM -pubout

Use the private key to encode.

import JSONWebTokens
claims_dict = Dict( "sub" => "1234567890", "name" => "John Doe", "iat" => 1516239022)
rsa_private = JSONWebTokens.RS256("private.pem") # Use the filepath to private.pem
jwt = JSONWebTokens.encode(rsa_private, claims_dict)
"eyJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJuYW1lIjoiSm9obiBEb2UiLCJzdWIiOiIxMjM0NTY3ODkwIiwiaWF0IjoxNTE2MjM5MDIyfQ.HUXm8CAiY9EKX3dU1Ym7bZvL7yXMu3TC9iL1do0jvM0oD2rSqY5K06KmQy1qJETYZAIZIgA6ZrX2Q3ug01DVu-Yf1Kx3-OpC39eYuBGH-7P1QgwEcizbh6dw07LGC-xshru1v_tKi9IaogiitnEMLLeGdOuCTtYw2gDRjACq2L2UiJTAgurZ_yxE3cMApo492leubNo9fADtRPpofy37Q2VivfS4XwlTkS9Bxg6jrkBhTr-ieuiBx_kAmk2Zps5f9ih-aNPXi_3p5tNH-8LUMJ5L2CTb6Ui1ghyElI7k8wfXzQIm0fGRiQu9OBnqgm2Bh9AivquXXeX6JQGxyntDqA"

Use the public key to decode.

rsa_public = JSONWebTokens.RS256("public.pem") # Use the filepath to public.pem
JSONWebTokens.decode(rsa_public, jwt)
Dict{String,Any} with 3 entries:
  "name" => "John Doe"
  "sub"  => "1234567890"
  "iat"  => 1516239022
