JSON Web Message (JWM) is a flexible way to encode application-level messages in JSON for transfer over a variety of transport protocols. JWMs use JSON Web Encryption (JWE) to protect integrity, achieve confidentiality, and achieve repudiable authentication; alternatively or in addition, they use JSON Web Signatures (JWS) to associate messages with a non-repudiable digital signature.
