JOSE Header


JOSE Header (Javascript Object Signing and Encryption Header) the members of the JSON object(s) representing the JOSE Header describe the Digital Signature or MAC applied to the JSON Web Signature (JWS) Protected Header and the JWS Payload and optionally additional properties of the JWS.

The Header Parameter names within the JOSE Header MUST be unique; JWS parsers MUST either reject JWSs with duplicate JOSE Header Parameter names or use a JSON parser that returns only the lexically last duplicate member name, as specified in Section 15.12 (The JSON Object) of ECMAScript 5.1 ECMAScript.
