JOSE -29 and JWT -23 drafts coalescing duplicative terminology definitions

IETF logoSurprise! For the first time ever, I’ve released two sets of JOSE and JWT drafts in one day! I wanted to separate the changes addressing recent AD comments from this set of changes that reduces duplication in the drafts.

These drafts replaced the terms JWS Header, JWE Header, and JWT Header with a single JOSE Header term defined in the JWS specification. This also enabled a single Header Parameter definition to be used and reduced other areas of duplication between the specifications. No normative changes were made.

The specifications are available at:
