            Node.js njwt Signature verification failed
            Asked 2018-Apr-05 at 21:24

            Im building a application where i want to use jwt-tokens for authentication. i followed the tutorial on this website: https://stormpath.com/blog/nodejs-jwt-create-verify

            The problem is when i want to use the verify function i get this error: JwtParseError: Signature verification failed.

            And i cant figure out what im doing wrong.

            The moment i create the token i save it in my database along with the secret key. Then i sent this token to the browser. The browser sents this token back, at that moment i search for the token in my database. Then i use the token and the secretkey that was stored with it to verify. At that moment i get the error.

            Code when i build token and store it:

            I belive that you must explicity define a secret key, like Jwt.createKey("you-secretkey-here"); and use the same key in Jwt.checkJWT(body.token, "you-secretkey-here");. Try to pass the same secret key from the Jwt.createKey to Jwt.checkJWT function.

            C# Decoding long Base64 Strings
            Asked 2017-Nov-13 at 22:26

            I am using Unity Free + NodeJS to code a small project with my mates.

            NodeJs for the Server, and Unity for the Clients.

            If you entered valid login data, the Server will return a jwt using njwt, which can be decoded using various online tools, and with c#.

            But, this Line: byte[] _dec = Convert.FromBase64String(part); returns no error, but also prevents execution of more code. And I don't know why.

            Here are more samples to understand what's going on.

            I finally fixed it. It was a very tiny mistake. The whole token was correct b64, but when I split out the middle part it was dividable by 4. I added a = and then it decoded fine.
