Towards The Tokenization of Data
We live in a 20th Century world of data, and where we just gather it and care little about its trustworthiness. But, there is a better way, and that’s to use signed tokens to protect and/or define trustworthiness. To protect, we can encrypt our data, and for the trustworthiness, we can use a digital signature. One of the most widely used methods for this is JSON Web Tokens (JWT).
