Hello Lorenzo, I wanted to know if there is a version in php language. Thanks

Not written by me ;)
I think it should be easy to write a PHP version

any browser-javascript version?
or at least a hint to decode the string I get after decoding BASE45 string and uncompressing with zlib, always in browser-javascript.

Hello! Do you know why I get errors on [headers1, headers2, cbor_data, signature] = results[0].value; -> 'headers1' is not defined, 'headers2 is not defined, 'cbor_data' is not defined, 'signature' is not defined ? Thank you!

I don't know. I assume that something went wrong during CBOR decoding

Add some debug lines as follows, to figure out where the process failed:

// Data is Base45 encoded
const decodedData = base45.decode(greenpassBody);
console.log("decodedData ", decodedData );

// And zipped
const output = pako.inflate(decodedData);
console.log("output ",output );

const results = cbor.decodeAllSync(output);
console.log("results ",results );

[headers1, headers2, cbor_data, signature] = results[0].value;

const greenpassData = cbor.decodeAllSync(cbor_data);

You can also have a look at my page for greenpass decoding in browser standalone:

Because you have to declare those variables first. Like this:

let headers1, headers2, cbor_data, signature;

And then write this:

[headers1, headers2, cbor_data, signature] = results[0].value;

Suggestion for decoding/reading (not checking) the "signature" variable?
It should result in something like:

kid: 53FOjX/4aJs=
key: <EllipticCurvePublicNumbers(curve=secp256r1, x=59224424711316661084877973301841821584140021680113528472675651838972371380627, y=54841068689176540860306147861276004028606373898471432794562118907413910993957>

Hi Lorenzo!

Lorenzo can you advise a library to encrypt and sign cbor message ?
