The ultimate Python library for JOSE RFCs, including JWS, JWE, JWK, JWA, JWT

Project description

·joserfc· is a Python library that provides a comprehensive implementation of several essential JSON Object Signing and Encryption (JOSE) standards.

This package contains implementation of:

  • RFC7515: JSON Web Signature

  • RFC7516: JSON Web Encryption

  • RFC7517: JSON Web Key

  • RFC7518: JSON Web Algorithms

  • RFC7519: JSON Web Token

  • RFC7520: Examples of Protecting Content Using JSON Object Signing and Encryption

  • RFC7638: thumbprint for JWK

  • RFC8037: OKP Key and EdDSA algorithm

  • RFC8812: ES256K algorithm

And draft RFCs implementation of:

  • C20P and XC20P

  • ECDH-1PU algorithms


A quick and simple JWT encoding and decoding would look something like this:

>>> from joserfc import jwt
>>> encoded = jwt.encode({"alg": "HS256"}, {"k": "value"}, "secret")
>>> encoded
>>> token = jwt.decode(encoded, "secret")
>>> token.header
{'alg': 'HS256', 'typ': 'JWT'}
{'k': 'value'}
