IETF 84 versions of JOSE and JWT specifications

IETF logoI’ve made a minor release of the JSON WEB {Signature,Encryption,Key,Algorithms,Token} (JWS, JWE, JWK, JWA, JWT) specifications to support the working group discussions at IETF 84 in Vancouver, BC. This release incorporates working group feedback since the minor release on July 16th and updates the lists of open issues in the JWE and JWA specifications.

The specifications are available at:

The document history entries (also in the specifications) are as follows:

http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-jose-json-web-signature-05

  • Added statement that “StringOrURI values are compared as case-sensitive strings with no transformations or canonicalizations applied”.
  • Indented artwork elements to better distinguish them from the body text.

http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-jose-json-web-encryption-05

  • Support both direct encryption using a shared or agreed upon symmetric key, and the use of a shared or agreed upon symmetric key to key wrap the CMK.
  • Added statement that “StringOrURI values are compared as case-sensitive strings with no transformations or canonicalizations applied”.
  • Updated open issues.
  • Indented artwork elements to better distinguish them from the body text.
