I just want to share some slides I created for my talk "Token based authentication with JSON Web Tokens (JWT)" I gave yesterday, on June 15th, at Hamburgs JavaScript HH.JS meetup.

Token based authentication with JWT

What's that about? I'll try to summarize: JWT, pronounced jot, evolves to get the standardized specification and format for compact "web-safe" tokens that combine the benefits of tokens (over cookies) with the concept of "claim based" authentication information which reside self-contained as JSON representation within a signed (digest hash) and optionally encrypted token.
