The Nimbus-JWT library started as a fork of Axel Nennker's JWT

The supported algorithms are enumerated here:

To sum up, we have the HS*, RS* and ES* families of signature

Encryption is still not up to the latest draft revision as it doesn't
support integrity yet (and I'm waiting for things to settle a bit).

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

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

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

You can read the JavaDocs at

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