JWS and JWE Support in IBM DataPower V7.2


Course Description


Overview

This course teaches you how to use the JWS and JWE support that is part of IBM DataPower V7.2. JWS provides data integrity support for REST and JSON messages. JWE provides data confidentiality for REST and JSON messages. The course covers both the WebGUI approach and the GatewayScript approach. Hands-on exercises provide opportunities to practice the information that is covered in the lectures.  

Audience

This intermediate course is designed for IBM DataPower V7.2 integration developers who need to configure signing and encrypting support for REST and JSON messages.
