JSON Web Tokens (JWTs) are a popular option in the authentication space, but there are some inherent risks. While you gain flexibility by using a JWT, you lose the ability to revoke a token once it’s issued. To minimize the time between an administrator locking a user account and the time at which a previously issued token expires, the JWT should be short lived. This time window, while designed to be brief is a common security concern. Traditional solutions to this problem defeat the benefits of using a portable identity. Inversoft has come up with a novel way to solve this issue in a complementary method. Brian Pontarelli will cover how to implement this JWT revoke strategy to reduce the vulnerability window.
