AddHeaderParam Method

Adds additional header parameters.

Syntax

async jwt.addHeaderParam(name : string, value : string, dataType : number): Promise<void>

Remarks

This method is used to add additional header parameters before calling Encrypt or Sign.

The Name and Value parameters define the name and value of the parameter respectively. The DataType parameter specifies the JSON data type of the value. Possible values for DataType are:

  • 0 (Object)
  • 1 (Array)
  • 2 (String)
  • 3 (Number)
  • 4 (Bool)
  • 5 (Null)

Signing

To add additional parameters to the JOSE header use this method. For instance to create this header:


{
	"alg": "HS256",
	"crit": [
		"myheader"
	],
	"myheader": "testvalue"
}

The following code can be used:


byte[] key = new byte[] { 170, 171, 221, 209, 7, 181, 48, 178, 48, 118, 242, 132, 36, 218, 74, 140, 216, 165, 161, 70, 11, 42, 246, 205, 235, 231, 19, 48, 87, 141, 122, 10 };

//Sign the payload using HS256
Jwt jwt = new Jwt();
jwt.SigningAlgorithm = JwtSigningAlgorithms.saHS256;
jwt.ClaimAudience = "audience";
jwt.ClaimIssuer = "issuer";
jwt.ClaimExp = "1498508071";
jwt.AddHeaderParam("crit", "[\"myheader\"]", 1);
jwt.AddHeaderParam("myheader", "testvalue", 2);
jwt.KeyB = key;
jwt.Sign();

string signedData = jwt.EncodedJWT;

Note: when calling Sign the class will automatically add some headers based on properties that are set.

Parameters Automatically Set:

Header ParamProperty
algAlgorithm
kidKeyId

Encrypting

To add additional parameters to the JOSE header use this method. For instance to create this header:


{
	"alg": "A256GCMKW",
	"enc": "A128CBC-HS256",
	"iv": "cPTXlBL7aMiv-Dnf",
	"tag": "r5tmS-tXmfFngrybpnnt5g",
	"crit": [
		"myheader"
	],
	"myheader": "testvalue"
}

The following code can be used:


byte[] key = new byte[] { 164, 60, 194, 0, 161, 189, 41, 38, 130, 89, 141, 164, 45, 170, 159, 209, 69, 137, 243, 216, 191, 131, 47, 250, 32, 107, 231, 117, 37, 158, 225, 234 };

Jwt jwt = new Jwt();
jwt.KeyB = key;
jwt.ClaimAudience = "audience";
jwt.ClaimIssuer = "issuer";
jwt.ClaimExp = "1498508071";
jwt.AddHeaderParam("crit", "[\"myheader\"]",1);
jwt.AddHeaderParam("myheader", "testvalue",2);
jwt.EncryptionAlgorithm = JwtEncryptionAlgorithms.eaA256GCMKW;
jwt.Encrypt();

string encryptedData = jwt.EncodedJWT;

Note: When calling Encrypt the class will automatically add headers based on the selected EncryptionAlgorithm and other properties that may be set.

Parameters Automatically Set:

Header ParamProperty
alg EncryptionAlgorithm
enc ContentEncryptionAlgorithm
kid KeyId
zip CompressionAlgorithm
p2c PBES2Count (PBES Algorithms Only)
apu PartyUInfo (ECDH Algorithms Only)
apv PartyVInfo (ECDH Algorithms Only)
iv N/A - Automatically Generated (AES Algorithms Only)
tag N/A - Automatically Generated (AES Algorithms Only)
p2s N/A - Automatically Generated (PBES Algorithms Only)
epk N/A - Automatically Generated (ECDH Algorithms Only)
