Very cool.  Which crypto algorithms do your JWS and JWE implementations support?

Hi guys,

Today we released an OpenID Connect SDK for Java, to serve as a starting point for developing IdP servers and clients based on the protocol.


The SDK matches the draft suite from 5 April, so we'll have to update it to the latest draft changes from last week.

With the SDK you can compose, serialise, parse and process request and response messages for the Authorisation, Token, CheckID and UserInfo endpoints.

Plain, signed and encrypted JSON Web Tokens (JWTs) are handled by the Nimbus-JWT library ( https://bitbucket.org/nimbusds/nimbus-jwt ).

UserInfo responses can be fully i18n with the help of the Nimbus LangTag library ( https://bitbucket.org/nimbusds/nimbus-langtag ).

The SDK emphasises type safety so that development errors as well as protocol exceptions at runtime are caught early and with detailed feedback.

You can read the JavaDocs at

Thanks to everyone who contributed to OpenID Connect. We expect great use of it in the years ahead.
