An Introduction to PASETO Tokens

An Introduction to PASETO Tokens

JSON Web Tokens (JWTs) have become ubiquitous in the web authentication landscape over the last four years. In this talk, I'll introduce you to their successor: PASETO tokens (platform agnostic security tokens).

PASETO takes the best parts of the JWT spec and removes the rest. PASETO is a much simpler, more secure, and easier to use version of the JWT spec that makes cryptographers happy reduces risk for developers like you.

In this talk you'll learn what PASETO tokens are, how they work, and how to use them in your applications.
