JSON Web Tokens, also known as JWTs, are URL-safe JSON-based security
tokens that contain a set of claims that can be signed and/or
encrypted. JWTs are being widely used and deployed as a simple
security token format in numerous protocols and applications, both in
the area of digital identity and in other application areas.  This
Best Current Practices document updates RFC 7519 to provide
actionable guidance leading to secure implementation and deployment
of JWTs.
