Overview#

The "Aud" (audience) OPTIONAL Reserved Claim Name identifies the recipients that the JSON Web Token is intended for.

Each principal intended to process the JWT MUST identify itself with a value in the audience claim.

If the principal processing the claim does not identify itself with a value in the "Aud" claim when this claim is present, then the JWT MUST be rejected.

In the general case, the "aud" value is an array of case-sensitive strings, each containing a StringOrURI value.

In the special case when the JWT has one audience, the "aud" value MAY be a single case-sensitive string containing a StringOrURI value.

The interpretation of audience values is generally application specific.
