The JOSE and JWT specs win innovation award at the 2014 European Identity Conference
Congratulations to everyone on the JOSE WG for their effort and dedication!

The specs have been stable for several months now and are currently receiving their final grilling at the IETF.
- JSON Web Token (JWT)
- JSON Web Signature (JWS)
- JSON Web Encryption (JWE)
- JSON Web Key (JWK)
