Abstract

The JSON Object Signing and Encryption (JOSE) technologies -- JSON Web Signature [JWS], JSON Web Encryption [JWE], JSON Web Key [JWK], and JSON Web Algorithms [JWA] -- can be used collectively to encrypt and/or sign content using a variety of algorithms. While the full set of permutations is extremely large, and might be daunting to some, it is expected that most applications will only use a small set of algorithms to meet their needs.
