   CBOR Web Token (CWT) is a compact means of representing claims to be
   transferred between two parties.  The claims in a CWT are encoded in
   the Concise Binary Object Representation (CBOR) and CBOR Object
   Signing and Encryption (COSE) is used for added application layer
   security protection.  A claim is a piece of information asserted
   about a subject and is represented as a name/value pair consisting of
   a claim name and a claim value.  CWT is derived from JSON Web Token
   (JWT) but uses CBOR rather than JSON.
