Why not using GCP integrated auth ?
Some projects require more flexibility, I've also personally came across a case where a company didn't want Google to manage the authentication process. Whether or not this should be used in production is outside the scope of this project.
from google.cloud import kms from gcpjwt.jwt import JWT from gcpjwt.jwt_signer import JWTSigner # Create a client using a json file and initialise an asymmetric signer. client = kms.KeyManagementServiceClient.from_service_account_file('../resources/google.json') signer = JWTSigner(client, 'your-project', 'your-ring-location') # Create a simple JWT without changing any claims. jwt = JWT(signer, 'your-ring', 'your-key') text_token = jwt.token()
pip install gcp-jwt
Note: This project uses the cryptography package which needs to install natives. It might not be compatible with App Engine Standard because of the limited libraries allowed.
