Deprecation/Removal: Assorted Authentication issues


We plan to deprecate and remove the following assorted authentication technologies:

  • Symmetric JWTs (replaced by newer Asymmetric JWTs)
  • django-oauth2-provider (DOP) related database tables (DOP has already been removed)
  • BearerAuthentication (replaced by newer JwtAuthentication)

Please read the following issues for more information and to post any questions/comments.

The proposed deadline for comments before acceptance is 2022-12-23.

Once the ticket is accepted, removal can happen at any time.

Thank you,
Robert Raposa
