PHP Question

Decode JWT encoded string from Google in PHP

I am upgrading my Google based login system, which requires me to decode

id_token
strings supplied by Google. The strings are valid, and I can decode them via: https://developers.google.com/wallet/digital/docs/jwtdecoder

But I want my server to do this on the fly in PHP.

I found both: https://github.com/firebase/php-jwt/tree/master and https://github.com/luciferous/jwt

But I cannot figure out how to work with PEAR packages. Simple PHP scripts to copy to my server I can do, but I find the documentation given with these 2 packages very limited. Does anybody have sample code on how to decode such a string?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Answer

If I understood you correctly, you're trying to decode JWT's with a PHP script? If so maybe the following PHP code (taken from https://developers.google.com/wallet/instant-buy/about-jwts#jwt_decoding) can help you using the script from luciferous.

$mwr = array(
  'iat' => $now,
  'exp' => $now + 3600,
  'typ' => 'google/wallet/online/masked/v2/request',
  'aud' => 'Google',
  'iss' => MERCHANT_ID,
  'request'=> array(
    'clientId' =>  CLIENT_ID,
    'merchantName'=> MERCHANT_NAME,
    'origin'=> ORIGIN,
     'pay'=> array (
       'estimatedTotalPrice'=> $estimated_total_price,
       'currencyCode'=> $input['currencyCode'],
      ),
      'ship'=> new stdClass(),
  ),
);
if (isset($input['googleTransactionId'])) {
  $mwr['request']['googleTransactionId'] = $input['googleTransactionId'];
}
WalletUtil::encode_send_jwt($mwr);
