This package provides APIs to work with JSON Web Tokens (JWT). JWTs can be used to pass a number of signed claims between client and server. Token values are URL-safe strings that consist of 3 parts, separated by '.'. The header part identifies the algorithm used for the signature part. The payload part contains the claims to make.

For more details on JWT, see RFC 7519.


APEX_JWT APIs only support HS256 symmetric encryption algorithm for claim signatures. Asymmetric encryption algorithms such as RS256 are not supported.
