Explore adding JWT to a Web API project, creating a JWT token, and accessing your secure APIs with it.
- Now that you've seen how they work in theory,…let's add JWT to our Web API project,…and use it to secure all of our API endpoints.…First we'll need to add NuGet package for JWT tokens.…I'll do that by going to the NuGet package manager here,…and I'm going to search for the package,…which is called "Microsoft.Owin.Security.Jwt."…And I'll install that in my project.…
We're using the Owin one because…our Web API project uses Owin for startup.…If you're not using Owin, then you'll need…to use a different NuGet package here.…By adding this package though,…we're also getting some other packages,…such as "System.IdentityModel.Tokens.Jwt",…which is the core of the JWT implementation.…Now that we've added the reference,…let's go to configure JWT at startup.…I'll add a new method here in my startup class,…I'm going to call it "ConfigureJWT",…and I'll have it take an "IAppBuilder" parameter,…called app. And then I'll go make sure I'm calling that…here in my configuration constructor.…
Now we'll add some code inside that method to set up JWT.…
