Application Default Credentials
This library provides an implementation of application default credentials for PHP.
The Application Default Credentials provide a simple way to get authorization credentials for use in calling Google APIs.
They are best suited for cases when the call needs to have the same identity and authorization level for the application independent of the user. This is the recommended approach to authorize calls to Cloud APIs, particularly when you're building an application that uses Google Compute Engine.
Download your Service Account Credentials JSON file
Application Default Credentials, You first need to download a set of
JSON credentials for your project. Go to APIs & Services > Credentials in
the Google Developers Console and select
Service account from the Add credentials dropdown.
This file is your only copy of these credentials. It should never be committed with your source code, and should be stored securely.
Once downloaded, store the path to this file in the

For invoking Cloud Identity-Aware Proxy, you will need to pass the Client ID used when you set up your protected resource as the target audience. See how to secure your IAP app with signed headers.
Call using a specific JSON key
If you want to use a specific JSON key instead of using
GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS environment variable, you can
If you are using Google ID tokens to authenticate users, use
Google\Auth\AccessToken class to verify the ID token:
If your app is running behind Google Identity-Aware Proxy (IAP), you can verify the ID token coming from the IAP server by pointing to the appropriate certificate URL for IAP. This is because IAP signs the ID tokens with a different key than the Google Identity service:
