Paseto (pɔːsɛtəʊ, paw-set-oh) is everything you love about JOSE (JWT, JWE, JWS) without any of the many design deficits that plague the JOSE standards.

This library is a reference implementation of PASETO in the PHP language. Please refer to the PASETO Specification for design considerations.

How to Use this Library

See the documentation.

The PASETO specification may also be useful for understanding why things are designed the way they are.

PASETO Extensions

PASERK

For key wrapping, serialization, and canonical identification, please see the PHP implementation of PASERK.

If you're not sure what that means, please refer to the PASERK specification.

Since PASERK is a PASETO extension, PASERK support is not automatically included with PASETO, but PASETO is bundled with PASERK.
