NAME

Plack::Middleware::Auth::JWT - Token-based Auth (aka Bearer Token) using JSON Web Tokens (JWT)

VERSION

version 0.903

SYNOPSIS

  # use Crypt::JWT to decode the JWT
  use Plack::Builder;
  builder {
      enable "Plack::Middleware::Auth::JWT",
          decode_args => { key => '12345' },
      ;
      $app;
  };

  # or provide your own decoder in a callback
  use Plack::Builder;
  builder {
      enable "Plack::Middleware::Auth::JWT",
          decode_callback => sub {
              my $token = shift;
              ....
          },
      ;
      $app;
  };


  # curl -H 'Authorization: Bearer eyJhbG...'
  # if the JWT is valid, two keys will be added to $env->{psgix}
  # $env->{'psgix.token'}  = 'original_token'
  # $env->{'psgix.claims'} = { sub => 'bart' } # claims as hashref

DESCRIPTION

Plack::Middleware::Auth::JWT helps you to use JSON Web Tokens (or JWT) for authentificating HTTP requests. Tokens can be provided in the Authorization HTTP Header, or as a query parameter (though passing the JWT via the header is the prefered method).

Configuration

TODO

decode_args

See "decode_jwt" in Crypt::JWT

Please note that key might has to be passed as a string-ref or an object, see Crypt::JWT

It is very much recommended that you only allow the algorithms you are actually using by setting accepted_alg! Per default, 'none' is not allowed.

Hardcoded:

        decode_payload = 1
        decode_header  = 0

Different defaults:

        verify_exp = 1
        leeway     = 5

You either have to use decode_args, or provide a decode_callback.

decode_callback

Callback to decode the token. Gets the token as a string and the psgi-env, has to return a hashref with claims.

You have to either provide a callback, or use decode_args.

psgix_claims

Default: claims

Name of the entry in psgix were the claims are stored, so you can get the (for example) sub claim via

  $env->{'psgix.claims'}->{sub}

psgix_token

Default: token

Name of the entry in psgix were the raw token is stored.

token_required

Default: false

If set to a true value, all requests need to include a valid JWT. Default false, so you have to check in your application code if a token was submitted.

ignore_invalid_token

Default: false

If set to a true value, passing an invalid JWT will not abort the requerst with status 401. Instead the app will be called as if no token was passed at all.

You can use this to implement another token check in a later middleware, or even in your app. Of course you will then have to check for $env->{psgix.token} in your controller actions.

token_header_name

Default: Bearer

Name of the token in the HTTP Authorization header. If you set it to 0, headers will be ignored.

token_query_name

Default: token

Name of the HTTP query param that contains the token. If you set it to 0, tokens in the query will be ignored.

Example

TODO, in the meantime you can take a look at the tests.
