This document defines how to use Synthetic Initialization Vector (SIV) encryption and key-wrapping modes with JSON Web Encryption (JWE), and registers identifiers for SIV-based key-wrapping and content encryption algorithms. SIV provides either deterministic authenticated encryption and key-wrapping, or nonce-based misuse- resistant authenticated encryption depending on usage.
