Run oidc token verification

Project description

Flask OIDC Verifier

PyPI version

Implements implicit OIDC verification for Flask, similar to drf-oidc-auth in Django.


Assumptions: tokens are passed via headers of the form Authorization: Bearer $YOUR_TOKEN. These can be changed in the settings

  1. Install with pip install flask-oidc-verifier
  2. Add the following to your flask config (at a minimum, see the Config section for more options). Replace the values with relevant config values:
   class Config():
   OIDC_ENDPOINT = "https://my.oidc.endpoint"
  1. Initialize the authentication provider:
from flask import Flask
from flask_oidc_verifier.decorators import JWTVerification
from typing import Dict, Any

app = Flask(__name__)

# Define a callback for what to do with the verified JWT contents
def on_verified(d: Dict[Any, Any]) -> None:
    # get_or_create_user

auth = auth.init_app(app, on_verified=on_verified)
  1. Use as a decorator:
def protected_file(filename: str) -> None:
    return send_from_directory("protected", filename)
