Expanded options for signing and encrypting JSON Web Tokens (8.4)

You can now authenticate using JSON Web Token (JWT) token profiles to symmetrically and asymmetrically encrypt both signatures and content. Pega now supports all algorithms in the Nimbus JWT library, including nested tokens. Custom key identifier headers (kid) are also supported. Use token profiles to securely propagate identities and transfer data between systems.

The following figure shows a sample token profile that encrypts both signature and content with a selected algorithm.
