springboot-rsocketjwt-example

An example of using JWT, for authentication and authorization, with RSocket and Spring Boot.

This example consists of an RSocket service, hello-service, that returns hello messages based upon the method called and the supplied JWT token from the hello-client application.

The example assumes that you have already retrieved valid JWT tokens from your choice of Authorization Server. To mimic this, a token-generator project has been included to get valid tokens for use with this demo.

Building the Example

Run the following command to build the example:

./gradlew clean build

Running the Example

Follow the steps below to run the example:

  1. Run the following command to generate the admin and user JWT tokens to use for authenticating with the hello-service:

     ./gradlew :token-generator:run
    

    If successful, you will see the tokens displayed in the console:

     > Task :token-generator:run
     
     Generated Tokens

  2. In a new terminal, run the following command to start the hello-service:

     ./gradlew :hello-service:bootRun
    

    If successful, you will see a message stating the service has been started in the console:

     2019-12-20 10:33:59.223  INFO 1889 --- [           main] e.service.hello.HelloServiceApplication  : Started HelloServiceApplication in 1.185 seconds (JVM running for 1.546)
    

    Now you are ready to start calling the hello-service.

  3. In a new terminal, run the following command to call the unsecured hello endpoint:

     ./gradlew :hello-client:bootRun --args="hello Bob"
    

    Notice that the request was successful and you received a hello response:

     2019-12-20 10:37:24.282  INFO 1919 --- [           main] e.client.hello.HelloClientApplication    : Response: Hello, Bob! - from unsecured method 
    
  4. Next, run the following command to call the hello.secure method which requires that the user is authenticated:

     ./gradlew :hello-client:bootRun --args="hello.secure Bob"
    

    You will receive an io.rsocket.exceptions.ApplicationErrorException: Access Denied exception because you have not supplied a valid JWT token.

  5. Now, run the same command again, but this time supply the User JWT token you generated earlier:

     ./gradlew :hello-client:bootRun --args="--token {User Token Here} hello.secure Bob"
    

    You will now receive a successful hello message because you have authenticated with a valid JWT token:

     2019-12-20 10:42:14.371  INFO 1979 --- [           main] e.client.hello.HelloClientApplication    : Response: Hello, Bob! - from secured method
    
  6. Next, let's test authorization by calling the hello.secure.adminonly endpoint with the User token by running the following command:

     ./gradlew :hello-client:bootRun --args="--token {User Token Here} hello.secure.adminonly Bob"
    

    You will receive an io.rsocket.exceptions.ApplicationErrorException: Access Denied exception because while you are authenticated, you are not authorized to access the method.

  7. Finally, let's call the hello.secure.adminonly endpoint again, but this time use the Admin token by running the following command:

     ./gradlew :hello-client:bootRun --args="--token {Admin Token Here} hello.secure.adminonly Bob"
    

    You will receive a successful hello message because you have supplied a valid JWT token with admin scope:

     2019-12-20 10:47:56.047  INFO 2054 --- [           main] e.client.hello.HelloClientApplication    : Response: Hello, Bob! - from secured method [admin only]
