            apple-signin-auth node js react native error: Invalid id token public key id
            Asked 2022-Mar-29 at 08:04

            I have a React native front end where I use invertase/react-native-apple-authentication to handle Apple Authentication.

            Then I have a NodeJS back end, where I use A-Tokyo/apple-signin-auth to handle Apple authenticated users and let them access routes.

            I made this authentication based on this article.

            I want the users to be able use the app without logging in again without a time limit. Therefore I save the identity token, which I get when the user does the first sign up in Async Storage in the front-end. Every time the user tries to access routes the user will be checked if he/she has a identityToken in the Header in my isAuth middleware in the NodeJS backend for the respective request.

            I can see in my logs not sometimes requests get the following error the backend in my isAuth middleware:

            JsonWebTokenError: error in secret or public key callback: input error: Invalid id token public key id at /app/node_modules/jsonwebtoken/verify.js:96:19 at _getIdTokenApplePublicKey (/app/node_modules/apple-signin-auth/lib/index.js:1:5730) at runMicrotasks () at processTicksAndRejections (internal/process/task_queues.js:95:5)

            The error is thrown in the apple-signin-auth library when executing this code:



            Answered 2022-Mar-29 at 08:04

            As far as I understand the workflow, you verify the identity token in the backend only once when the user has authenticated themselves using "Sign in with Apple" on the device.

            If verifying the identity token in the backend was successful, you receive a refresh token in the response. You are then supposed to save this refresh token in your backend and verify the refresh token once a day to check if the user is still logged in with Apple. What does that mean? For example a user could revoke access to your app. Or a different user could log in on the Apple device.

            By the way, if you verify the refresh token on every request (read multiple times a day), you risk Apple throttling these requests.

            Bear in mind that this doesn't free your system from rolling its own session management meaning that your system sends its own session ids back and forth between the backend and front-end. Once a day, you check the refresh token associated with a session to see if the user is still logged in.

            Disclaimer: This is how I understood the docs of Sign in with Apple. In other works, I have no experience implementing it. Hope it helps nonetheless.

            Why does this verified JSON Web Token (JWT) output as undefined?
            Asked 2021-Mar-05 at 07:12

            I'm trying to decode a JWT id_token using jwks-rsa and jsonwebtoken but the result is returning as undefined.

            I know this has something to do with callbacks, and the fact that I need to wait for a response from the getKey function but I can't wrap my head around how to structure the code to make that happen.

            This is what I have so far...



            Answered 2021-Mar-05 at 06:58

            You're not handling the asynchronous code correctly. The jwt.verify method returns a Promise if you do not pass it the callback method.

            If you use return jwt.verify(id_token, getKey, { algorithms: ['RS256'] }) inside the do_thing function and call it like this do_thing().then((decodedToken) => console.log(decodedToken)), it should work as expected.



            How does a server verify a JWT? Where does the Public Key come from?
            Asked 2020-Jul-27 at 01:21

            I am looking at the examples of JWT tokens in Node.js, and the verify function. My question is, where does this publicKey come from in verify(token, publicKey)? What is the flow?

            The client (one of my users) has a client library installed on their computer/server, for making requests to my app In the server, I call verify(token, publicKey). In the client library I generate the token using privateKey. The question is, how does the client get this private key generally? (i.e. is heroku login downloading a private key under the hood for making JWT requests, sort of thing?). And how do you fetch the public key? My understanding is, the client would download a private key, and our server would store the public key. Then given you have the public key and token, just call verify(token, publicKey). But how do you get the public key for the token on the server generally? Is the server storing one public key per private key disseminated to the client installed libraries?



            Answered 2020-Jul-27 at 01:21

            The way I've usually seen JWTs used, there is only a very small number of trusted issuers, often only one, and the tokens are used as bearer tokens. In many cases, the issuer and the verifier are the same. In other cases, the verifier trusts one identity provider (e.g. Google) and fetches the public key from a https URL (example).

            In your case, you could act as both the issuer and verifier:

            1. You (the server) would generate one key pair.
            2. Your API servers would trust JWTs signed by this key (and they'd only have the public key, since they only need to verify them).
            3. An authentication/management server would have the private key, would authenticate your user, and issue them a JWT.
            4. The client would never handle any keys, they'd simply store the signed JWT, and pass it as a bearer token when making a client request.

            This is e.g. the approach described here as the approach used by GitHub. In this case, the issuer and verifier both belong to you. This approach is the easiest for both you (you can trust the content of the JWTs once you've verified the signature), and the client (they're just dealing with an opaque API key and don't need to deal with the complexities of JWTs at all).

            A possible alternative approach could be:

            1. A key pair is generated and the public key is associated with the account. This can be done in multiple ways (see below), but the end result is the same: The client has a private key, and your server knows the corresponding public key and which user it is associated with
            2. When making a request, the client creates a JWT, signs it with its private key, and includes their user name in the token (e.g. in the iss and or sub field).
            3. Your server takes the token, extracts the user name, looks up the public key associated with the account in the database, and validates the token.

            This approach is used e.g. by Google Cloud for service account authentication.

            Step 1 above can be done in two ways:

            • You authenticate the user, generate a key pair, associate the public key with the account, and let the user download their private key (via https of course). While it's generally considered somewhat bad form to generate keys for someone else (because you get to see a key that you don't need to know and you have to send it over the network), it's a lot easier, and Google is doing just this.
            • The user generates and stores the key pair. You authenticate the user, the user uploads the public key, you associate it with the account.

            Either way, if you go with the "user signs a JWT" approach, you likely will want to provide client libraries, or at least code examples. Note also Google's requirement that the tokens must be short-lived, enforced by treating long-lived tokens as invalid. Without this rule and enforcement, what will happen is that many client developers will be annoyed about your complicated solution, manually sign a token that is valid forever on his laptop, and then use it as a bearer token.

            heroku login actually doesn't use JWTs at all. It retrieves and stores an OAuth Bearer Token. This is most comparable to the first approach (client never handles any private keys, just gets an opaque blob, which happens to be a JWT that you can verify). The difference between a non-JWT token and a long-lived JWT is that your API servers have to look up the meaning and validity of the regular token in a database, whereas the JWT directly tells you the user identity, and possibly permissions and other attributes that you included when issuing it.



            Where is the expiration of JWT (Json Web Token) saved?
            Asked 2020-Jan-25 at 03:04

            I think the JSW certification flow is as follows.

            1. (the client) call api with id and password in login page
            2. (the server) return token (HEADER . CLAIM . SECRETKEY) to client
            3. (the client) save the token in local storage
            4. (the client) call api with token
            5. (the server) checks the token for validity and expiration and returns a result to client

            Authentication method 5: Whether the combination of the decoded HEADER and the decoded CLAIM matches the SECRETKEY.

            I have a question. Where is the expiration saved?

            FYR. I used this library.



            Answered 2020-Jan-25 at 03:04

            The expiration is saved inside the CLAIM. As written in the RFC.

            4.1. Registered Claim Names

            4.1.4. "exp" (Expiration Time) Claim

            The "exp" (expiration time) claim identifies the expiration time on or after which the JWT MUST NOT be accepted for processing. The processing of the "exp" claim requires that the current date/time MUST be before the expiration date/time listed in the "exp" claim.

            Also, take a look at it is much easier to read than a RFC.
