Provided Features

Supported Input Types:

JWS or JWE objects support every input that can be encoded into JSON:
  • string, array, integer, float...
  • Objects that implement the \JsonSerializable interface such as JWK or JWKSet
The detached payload is supported.

JWK objects support JSON Web Key Thumbprint (RFC 7638).
A none key type for the none algorithm. It is used to explicitly allow this unsecured algorithm.

Key Sets (JWKSet)

JWKSet is fully supported.
