This specification defines the Security Event Token, which may be distributed via a protocol such as HTTP. The Security Event Token (SET) specification profiles the JSON Web Token (JWT) and may be optionally signed and/or encrypted. A SET describes a statement of fact that may be shared by an event publisher with event subscribers.
