Module for generating and verifying JSON Web Tokens

Latest Version: 0.3.1

Build Status Coverage Status PyPI version

Module for generating and verifying JSON Web Tokens.

Example:

import jwt, Crypto.PublicKey.RSA as RSA, datetime
key = RSA.generate(2048)
payload = { 'foo': 'bar', 'wup': 90 };
token = jwt.generate_jwt(payload, key, 'PS256', datetime.timedelta(minutes=5))
header, claims = jwt.verify_jwt(token, key)
for k in payload: assert claims[k] == payload[k]

The API is described here.

Installation

pip install python_jwt

Another Example

You can read and write keys from and to PEM-format strings:

import jwt, Crypto.PublicKey.RSA as RSA, datetime
key = RSA.generate(2048)
priv_pem = key.exportKey()
pub_pem = key.publickey().exportKey()
payload = { 'foo': 'bar', 'wup': 90 };
priv_key = RSA.importKey(priv_pem)
pub_key = RSA.importKey(pub_pem)
token = jwt.generate_jwt(payload, priv_key, 'RS256', datetime.timedelta(minutes=5))
header, claims = jwt.verify_jwt(token, pub_key)
for k in payload: assert claims[k] == payload[k]
