2014 European Identity Conference

We just received news from Mike Jones at the European Identity Conference that the JOSE and JWT specs have received an award for best innovation.

Congratulations to everyone on the JOSE WG for their effort and dedication!

The JOSE and JWT specs are instrumental for devising lightweight self-contained identity (OpenID Connect) and access (OAuth 2.0) tokens, suitable for passing around with URL redirections.

The specs have been stable for several months now and are currently receiving their final grilling at the IETF.

Are you looking for a solid Java library for creating and processing JSON Web Tokens (JWTs)? A good place to start is the Nimbus JOSE + JWT library.
