Abstract

JSON Web Token (JWT) is a compact claims representation format intended for space constrained environments such as HTTP Authorization headers and URI query parameters. JWTs encode claims to be transmitted as a JSON [RFC7159] object that is used as the payload of a JSON Web Signature (JWS) [JWS] structure or as the plaintext of a JSON Web Encryption (JWE) [JWE] structure, enabling the claims to be digitally signed or integrity protected with a Message Authentication Code (MAC) and/or encrypted. JWTs are always represented using the JWS Compact Serialization or the JWE Compact Serialization.

Abstract

   JSON Web Token (JWT) is a compact, URL-safe means of representing    claims to be transferred between two parties.  The claims in a JWT    are encoded as a JSON object that is used as the payload of a JSON    Web Signature (JWS) structure or as the plaintext of a JSON Web    Encryption (JWE) structure, enabling the claims to be digitally    signed or integrity protected with a Message Authentication Code    (MAC) and/or encrypted.
