Topic for this post will be JSON Web Token. JSON Web Token is an open standard, under RFC 7519, that is defines a compact and self-contained way for securely transmitting information between parties as a JSON object.

Below are links, with information how to work with JSON Web Token, for a Drupal website.

First link is to a blog by “Media Current” website, titled “Using JSON Web Tokens (JWT) to Authenticate Requests to REST Resources in Drupal 8.” It go's through the steps of setting up JSON Web Token on a Drupal 8 website, to authenticate some core REST resources. Second link is a video from DrupalCamp NJ YouTube page, presentation on working with JSON Web Token, I was present, at the online record of this video.
