Build Status codecov

A Vapor provider for JWT token signing and verifying. Uses the Vapor service mechanism to allow easy signing and verifying tokens throughout the app, and allows flexibility for implementing different signing strategies for development vs. production.

import PackageDescription

let package = Package(

    targets: [

Register the provider in your vapor configuration.

///  This is all that's required if you want to use the `hs256` signing
///  algorithm, and parse the signing secret from the environment

By default the signing secret is looked up in the environment, using the value found in JWT_TOKEN_SECRET. You can register your own secret storage container, by creating an object that conforms to TokenSecret.

final class MyJWTSecret: TokenSecret {
    let secret: LosslessDataConvertible = "super-secret"

Then in your configuration.

config.prefer(MyJWTSecret.self, for: TokenSecret.self)

Signing a token.

Create a JWTPayload.

struct UserJWT: JWTPayload {

    /// The user's email.
    let email: String

    /// - seealso: *JWTPayload*
    func verify(using signer: JWTSigner) throws {
        /// Nothing to verify

In a route or container sign and return a token string.

router.post("login") { req -> String in

    let user = try req.requireAuthenticated(User.self)
    let signer = try req.make(JWTTokenService.self)
    let payload = UserJWT(email: user.email)
    return try signer.sign(payload: payload)

Verify a token.

In a route or container.

router.get("verifyToken", String.parameter) { req -> HTTPResponseStatus in
    let token = try req.parameters.next(String.self)
    let verifier = try req.make(JWTTokenService.self)
    let jwt: JWT<UserJWT> = try verifier.verify(token: token)
    // do something with the verified token.
    return .ok
