    i use asp.net core jwt authentication  , when user login i create token and send to him ,

    var secretKey = new SymmetricSecurityKey(Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes("Itisa Secret Key Abroon"));
                var signinCredentials = new SigningCredentials(secretKey, SecurityAlgorithms.HmacSha256);
                var tokenOption = new JwtSecurityToken(
                    issuer: "https://localhost:44303",
                    claims: new List<Claim>
                        new Claim(ClaimTypes.Name,user.UserName),
                        new Claim(ClaimTypes.Role,"Customer")
                    expires: DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(1),  
                    signingCredentials: signinCredentials
                var token = new JwtSecurityTokenHandler().WriteToken(tokenOption);
                return token;

    Hi elahi1mahdi,

    The token is expired after one minute you could try to set a longer time for it.

    expires: DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(120),

    Hi elahi1mahdi,

    You cannot manually expire a token after it has been created. Thus, you cannot actually log out with JWT on the server side like you do with sessions.

    The value of the JWT is determined by its contents and the keys used to sign the JWT. If the contents and signing keys are identical each time the JWT is created then the JWT value should not change. If the JWT includes different any unique content (i.e. a timestamp) than it will have a different value each time the JWT is issued.

    With regard to destroying a JWT - jwt's often expire or you can include some unique data, i.e. a session ID that can be verified in the database.

    I think the typical way to 'destory' a jwt so that it may not be reused is to blacklist it in your db.

    • Set a reasonable expiration time on tokens
    • Delete the stored token from client side upon log out
    • <mark class="sv pz et">Have DB of no longer active tokens that still have some time to live</mark>
    • Query provided token against The Blacklist on every authorized request

    Refer to https://medium.com/devgorilla/how-to-log-out-when-using-jwt-a8c7823e8a6

    This answer suggests to use distributed cache, cache token Id and remove it when log out.During authorization, you need to validate if the ID is still inside the cache; if not, refuse authorization (401).
