JSON Web Token the Mojo way


JSON Web Token is described in Mojo::JWT implements that standard with an API that should feel familiar to Mojolicious users (though of course it is useful elsewhere). Indeed, JWT is much like Mojolicious::Sessions except that the result is a url-safe text string rather than a cookie.

In JWT, the primary payload is called the 'claims', and a few claims are reserved, as seen in the IETF document. The header and the claims are signed when stringified to guard against tampering. Note that while signed, the data is not encrypted, so don't use it to send secrets over clear channels.
