Title : CBOR Web Token (CWT)
Authors : Michael B. Jones
Filename : draft-ietf-ace-cbor-web-token-12.txt
Pages : 25
Date : 2018-02-02
CBOR Web Token (CWT) is a compact means of representing claims to be
transferred between two parties. The claims in a CWT are encoded in
the Concise Binary Object Representation (CBOR) and CBOR Object
Signing and Encryption (COSE) is used for added application layer
security protection. A claim is a piece of information asserted
about a subject and is represented as a name/value pair consisting of
a claim name and a claim value. CWT is derived from JSON Web Token
(JWT) but uses CBOR rather than JSON.
