It uses cryptography and signed tokens in order to validate users of an app, and itвЂ™s these innovations that have made it revolutionary in the space of web app security.
In this video, Abhay Bhargav explains what JSON Web Tokens are, how JWT works, and how theyвЂ™re being used to power enterprise applications across the globe.
