JWT Data Exchange


JWT Data Exchange is a good method for securely transmitting data between parties, because as they can be signed you can be sure that the senders are who they say they are (non-Repudiation). Additionally, as the JSON Web Signature is calculated using the header and the payload, you can also verify that the content hasn't changed (integrity).

By using JSON Web Encryption (JWE) or if the JSON Web Token is also transmitted over HTTPS you also gain Confidentiality.
