I'm pleased to announce the publication of the first draft<http://self-issued.info/docs/draft-jones-json-web-encryption-00.html> of the JSON Web Encryption (JWE)<http://self-issued.info/docs/draft-jones-json-web-encryption.html> specification. It enables JSON-based encryption of content in a parallel manner to how the JSON Web Signature (JWS)<http://self-issued.info/docs/draft-jones-json-web-signature.html> specification enables JSON-based signing of content.
My thanks to John Bradley, Nat Sakimura, Eric Rescorla, and Joe Hildebrand for helping make this initial version a reality!
