🪪 User identification, authentication, and authorization for Axum.

🎨 Overview

This crate provides user identification, authentication, and authorization as a tower middleware for axum.

If offers:

  • User Identification, Authentication, and Authorization: Leverage AuthSession to easily manage authentication and authorization. This is also an extractor, so it can be used directly in your axum handlers.
  • Support for Arbitrary Users and Backends: Applications implement a couple of traits, AuthUser and AuthnBackend, allowing for any user type and any user management backend. Your database? Yep. LDAP? Sure. An auth provider? You bet.
  • User and Group Permissions: Authorization is supported via the AuthzBackend trait, which allows applications to define custom permissions. Both user and group permissions are supported.
  • Convenient Route Protection: Middleware for protecting access to routes are provided via the login_required and permission_required macros. Or bring your own by using AuthSession directly with from_fn.
  • Rock-solid Session Management: Uses tower-sessions for high-performing and ergonomic session management. Look ma, no deadlocks!

📦 Install
