Introduction

QJsonWebToken : JWT (JSON Web Token) Implementation in Qt C++

This class implements a subset of the JSON Web Token open standard RFC 7519.

Currently this implementation only supports the following algorithms:

Alg Parameter Value Algorithm
HS256 HMAC using SHA-256 hash algorithm
HS384 HMAC using SHA-384 hash algorithm
HS512 HMAC using SHA-512 hash algorithm

Include

In order to include this class in your project, in the qt project .pro file add the lines:

HEADERS  += ./src/qjsonwebtoken.h
SOURCES  += ./src/qjsonwebtoken.cpp

Usage

The repository of this project includes examples that demonstrate the use of this class:

  • ./examples/jwtcreator/ : Example that shows how to create a JWT with your custom payload.

  • ./examples/jwtverifier/ : Example that shows how to validate a JWT with a given secret.

Limitations

Currently, QJsonWebToken validator, can only validate tokens created by QJsonWebToken itself. This limitation is due to the usage of Qt's QJsonDocument API, see this issue for further explanation.
