jwt: JSON Web Tokens
|Top Previous Next|
The JSON Web Tokens(JWT) functions are used to encode and decode JWT objects, which are used for e.g. authentication. JWT is specified in RFC 7519.
A JSON Web Token is a string that contains three base64url encoded parts separated by periods. The first part is the header includes information about which algorithm is used to generate the signature, the second part is the payload that specifies a number of claims. The last part is optional and is the signature of the token that verifies that the token is valid.
As the tokens can potentially be very long strings, these functions require that the project is built with Large String Support.
The following functions are used to work with the JWT objects:
