ViThor Auth

A small package that adds Authentication and Authorization layer, based on Json Web Token (JWT), in your dotnet application.

Ready-made endpoints are available for:

  • User Registration
  • Login (get token)
  • Token Validation
  • Refresh Token

An email submission and validation service is also now available in this library.


Install the package from NuGet:

dotnet add package ViThor.Auth



It is necessary to create a class that inherits from UserBase:

public class User : UserBase

Next, you need to create a class that implements the IUserService interface. You can get a sample implementation in Samples/Vithor.Auth.Sample/Serives/UserService.cs.

Add the class that implements the IUserService to the Program.cs dependency injection service:

builder.Services.AddScoped<IUserService<User>, UserService>();

The remaining settings and services are built by running:


The parameterization of these services is done in appsettings:

    "JwtConfig": {
        "Secret": "This is my custom Secret key for authnetication",
        "Issuer": "http://localhost:5000",
        "Audience": "http://localhost:5000",
        "ExpirationType": "Minutes",
        "Expiration": 1,
        "ValidateIssuerSigningKey": true,
        "ValidateLifetime": true,
        "ValidateIssuer": false,
        "ValidateAudience": false,
        "RequireHttpsMetadata": false,
        "SaveToken": false

Add AuthController to the API:

public class AuthController : AuthControllerBase<User>
    public AuthController(IJwtService jwtServices, IEmailService emailService, IUserService<User> userService, IOptions<ViThorAuthSettings> appSettings) : base(jwtServices, emailService, userService, appSettings)


E-mail configuration is not required. That is, only if you are going to use the email sending service to validate the user registration, add the parameters below in appsettings:

    "BaseAddress": "http://localhost:5000",
    "SmtpConfig": {
        "Enabled": false,
        "Host": "",
        "Port": 587,
        "UserName": "",
        "Password": "password-here",
        "From": ""


The sample project is available in the repository. It is a simple dotnet web api project that uses the ViThor.Auth package.

Running the sample

Run the following command to run the sample API:

dotnet run --project ./Samples/Vithor.Auth.Sample/ViThor.Auth.Sample.csproj

Testing the sample


The sample project has Swagger configured. To access it, run the API and access the following URL:


The example project has a Postman collection that can be used to test endpoints. To use it, import the collections from the Postman folder into Postman and run the requests.
