    This module lets you authenticate GRPC calls using JSON Web Tokens (JWTs) in your Condor GRPC services.

    Condor is a GRPC Framework for node.


    npm i --save condor-framework condor-jwt

    How to use

    The JWT middleware decodes and verifies a JsonWebToken passed in the authorization header. If the token is valid, context.token (by default) will be set with the JSON object decoded to be used by later middleware for authorization and access control.

    const Condor = require('condor-framework');
    const jwt = require('condor-jwt');
    const Greeter = require('./greeter');
    const app = new Condor()
      .addService('./protos/greeter.proto', 'myapp.Greeter', new Greeter())
      .use(jwt({'secretOrPublicKey': 'shhhhh'}))
      // middleware below this line is only reached if JWT token is valid
      .use((context, next) => {
        console.log('valid token found: ', context.token);

    Custom Methods

    By default, the token will be retrieved from the authorization metadata. Also, you can provide your own method to retrieve the token. The method can be sync or async (return a promise). It must return the token object if found and valid, or null otherwise. The method will be called with the context.

    options = {
      'getToken': (context) => {
        // do your magic here
        return token;

    In the same manner, you can provide your isRevoked method to determine if a token is revoked. The method can be sync or async (return a promise). If the token is not revoked, the method must return false or resolve with false.

    options = {
      'isRevoked': (context, token) => {
        // do your magic here
        return false;


    Option Description
    getToken Custom method to get the token
    isRevoked Custom method to verify if a token is revoked
    propertyName Where to store the token in the context. Default is token
    passthrough Continue to next, even if no valid authorization token was found. Default is false
    secretOrPublicKey a string or buffer containing either the secret for HMAC algorithms, or the PEM encoded public key for RSA and ECDSA

    Additionaly, you can send any option of the verify method of the jsonwebtoken module:

    • algorithms
    • audience
    • issuer
    • ignoreExpiration
    • subject
    • clockTolerance
    • maxAge
    • clockTimestamp

    Such options will be used to verify the token.
