What is JWT JSON Web Token?

What is JWT JSON Web Token?

If you've heard of JWT or JSON Web Tokens but are not sure what they are, this post provides a brief introduction. As per the open standard RFC 7519, JWT is "a compact, URL-safe means of representing claims to be transferred between two parties." Essentially, a token can be generated by a system, and a third-party system can verify that the token is authentic and has not been tampered with. This token can be used to securely exchange information between two parties.

By understanding the fundamentals of JWT, you can create and implement more secure authentication and authorization mechanisms in your applications. So, whether you're a developer building an API or a security professional looking to enhance your knowledge, this post is a great starting point.
