JSON Web Tokens

CILogon issues JSON Web Tokens (JWT) for authentication and authorization. CILogon's OpenID Provider issues ID Tokens in the JWT format according to the OpenID Connect (OIDC) standard. Additionally, for CILogon Full Service subscribers, CILogon issues JWTs following the SciTokens, WLCG, RFC 9068, and GA4GH Passports profiles to implement community authorization policies based on COmanage Registry attributes, groups, and roles, in addition to other data sources (e.g., via REST APIs).
