Securing service mesh, microservices, and modern applications with JSON Web Token (JWT)

Sharing identity and authorization information between applications and services should be done with an open industry standard to ensure interoperability in heterogeneous environments. Javascript Object Signing and Encryption (JOSE) is a framework for securely sharing such information between heterogeneous applications and services.

In this session, we’ll cover the specifications of the JOSE framework, focusing especially on JSON Web Token (JWT). We’ll discuss practical applications of the JOSE framework, including relevant specifications, such as OpenID Connect. After this session, you’ll have an understanding of the specifications and how to easily adopt them using Red Hat single sign-on or another OpenID Connect provider.
