The JavaScript Object Signing and Encryption (JOSE) technologies - JSON Web Signature (JWS), JSON Web Encryption (JWE), JSON Web Key (JWK), and JSON Web Algorithms (JWA) - collectively can be used to encrypt and/or sign content using a variety of algorithms. While the full set of permutations is extremely large, and might be daunting to some, it is expected that most applications will only use a small set of algorithms to meet their needs.


This is a JOSE implementation that is not compatible with Google App Engine as it uses pycryptodome.


$ pip install python-jose-cryptodome


>>> from jose import jwt
>>> token = jwt.encode({'key': 'value'}, 'secret', algorithm='HS256')

>>> jwt.decode(token, 'secret', algorithms=['HS256'])
{u'key': u'value'}


This library was originally based heavily on the work of the folks over at PyJWT.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
