IETF logoJSON Object Signing and Encryption (JOSE) -18 and JSON Web Token (JWT) -13 drafts have been published. The JOSE drafts contain changes to address 34 of the 43 currently open issues. The JWT draft addresses several of the working group last call (WGLC) comments. No breaking changes were made to any of the specifications. The most visible change is that all registries now include Description fields — a change that was requested in JWT WGLC.
