            How do i tell which repository/artifact on is more widely adopted? nimbus-jose-jwt vs jose4j
            Asked 2022-Mar-18 at 13:36

            I am trying to figure out whether i should pick(based on the adoption):

            -nimbus-jose-jwt - Used By 279 artifacts OR
            -jose4j - Used by 655 artifacts

            I found that jose4j 's author, Brian Campbell, is active, based on the commits, it has the features that i need i.e support for JWE and it works well, but what i don't like is this:

            So, are developers picking jose4j, is it a good choice(am i being paranoid?) or should i move to nimbus(the Used By artifacts is more for nimbus, does it mean it s more widely adopted?)

            Looks like that vulnerability is in Logback, which is a dependency that's only used in the unit tests (further down that page you screenshotted shows the different dependency categorizations).

            I need get that updated, obviously, but it doesn't impact the library itslef.



            Unable to parse JWK in Java
            Asked 2022-Mar-11 at 09:57

            I implemented a rest authorization server that returns the public-key for a given keyId in the JWK format using the com.nimbusds:nimbus-jose-jwt:9.13 package. The code looks something like this:



            Answered 2021-Sep-01 at 16:35

            The answer is to use String for (de)serialization for those facing this problem. Why, you ask? According to the RFC, JWK is a string in the JSON format. While nimbusds:nimbus-jose-jwt defines a JWK object, any APIs that return valid JWK (or JWKSet) can assume that it's a string.

            I also raised this issue with the developers of this package, and they recommended using String or Map for (de)serialization.



            Can't verify access token signature from azure using nimbus
            Asked 2022-Mar-02 at 13:15

            following this example I wrote some code to validate an access token return by implicit flow from azure.



            Answered 2022-Mar-02 at 13:15

            You need to expose an API scope in Azure, and get the client to use that. Also ensure that there is no nonce field in the JWT header of the access token. My blog post has further info.


            The above behavior is quite specific to Microsoft, and is required when using Azure AD as a provider:

            • Tokens with a nonce field in the JWT header are designed only for MS APIs, eg Graph, and use an in-house validation mechanism. The intent is for these to always fail validation in custom APIs.

            • Tokens for your own custom APIs must be retrieved via clients that request custom scopes. Note that the OAuth client configured in Azure AD can be a logical entry, rather than needing to maintain one for each individual API.

            I believe the MS behavior is based on OAuth resource indicators, though my personal preference is to use more mainstream techniques of scopes, claims and audience checks when receiving access tokens in APIs.



            Error deploying Encryption Java cloud function on Google cloud
            Asked 2022-Feb-21 at 07:57

            Facing the below error while trying to deploy an encryption java cloud function on Google cloud. [Note, function works locally].



            Answered 2022-Feb-21 at 07:57

            Your error is stating that you are attempting to use a class which does not exist. If it works locally and it does not work on Google Cloud, that means the libraries/jar are not configured properly.

            If what you are deploying is a Fat/Uber jar, unzip the jar and verify the location of nimbus-jose-jwt.

            An uber JAR is a JAR file that contains the function classes as well as all of its dependencies. You can build an uber JAR with both Maven and Gradle

            If what you are deploying is a Thin Jar, ensure that your dependencies are in a package relative to the JAR deployed.

            A thin JAR is a JAR file that contains only the function classes without the dependencies embedded in the same JAR file. Because the dependencies are still needed for deployment, you need to set things up as follows:

            The dependencies must be in a subdirectory relative to the JAR to be deployed. The JAR must have a META-INF/MANIFEST.MF file that includes a Class-Path attribute whose value lists the required dependency paths.

            The Google Cloud documentation is very clear on how you can use Maven/Gradle to deploy either.

            Autogenerated OAuth2 login page for AWS Cognito in reactive Spring Boot application fails

            I am facing an authentication issue in a reactive Spring Boot application using OAuth2 and AWS Cognito. Namely, I configured my app like it's suggested in post here but the problem is that the default login page is failing while authentication attempts or visits.

            Funnily enough, I can receive the tokens via postman for the below client-id, client-secret and callback URL but somehow from the spring boot application, it's not possible.

            In nimbus-jose-jwt, what is difference between lifespan and refreshTime?
            Asked 2021-Nov-21 at 04:21

            The class DefaultJWKSetCache of nimbus-jose-jwt has two fields, lifespan and refreshTime.
            From Java docs -

            lifespan - The lifespan of the cached JWK set before it expires, negative means no expiration.
            refreshTime - The time after which the cached JWK set is marked for refresh, negative if not specified. Should be shorter or equal to the lifespan.

            What is the difference between these two. Does it mean that,
            after the lifespan expiry the cached JWK set will be evicted and loaded again from jwks remote url (saying remote url as i am using RemoteJWKSet).
            and after the refresh expiry the existing JWK set will be updated with the keys retrieved from remote url.

            But i don't understand the practical difference between the two. Both seem to be doing same. Can some one explain the details with more granularity and any example.

            Edit - if i give no expiry for lifespan, and 1 hour expiry for refreshTime, am i guaranteed that my keys will be updated every one hour.



            Answered 2021-Nov-21 at 04:21

            The lifespan is the time after which the DefaultJWKSetCache will evict cached JWKSet. I.e., after lifespan time units passed since the cache was populated the calls to JWKSetCache.get() will always return null until new JWKSet is stored to the cache.

            The refreshTime is the time that impacts value returned by JWKSetCache.requiresRefresh() method. After refreshTime time units passed since the cache was populated this method will return true, otherwise, it will return false. This setting does not impact cache behavior in any way.

            The RemoteJWKSet uses the value returned by JWKSetCache.requiresRefresh() to re-download JWKSet from remote URL before the cache is actually expired. This is why documentation recommends to set refreshTime to a lesser value than lifespan.

            Currently, RemoteJWKSet triggers download of remote JWKSet when either lifespan or refreshTime has passed (see this line.) Hence, there is not much difference in setting either one of these as of today. I guess some more complex logic can be potentially implemented having these two values separate.
