        Title           : Voluntary Application Server Identification (VAPID) for Web Push
        Authors         : Martin Thomson

   An application server can use the method described to voluntarily
   identify itself to a push service.  The "vapid" authentication scheme
   allows a client to include its an identity in a signed token with
   requests that it makes.  The signature can be used by the push
   service to attribute requests that are made by the same application
   server to a single entity.  The identification information can allow
   the operator of a push service to contact the operator of the
   application server.  The signature can be used to restrict the use of
   a push subscription to a single application server.
