OmniAuth strategy to accept JWT-based single sign-on
JSON Web Token JWT is a simple way to send verified information between two parties online. This can be useful as a mechanism for providing Single Sign-On SSO to an application by allowing an authentication server to send a validated claim and log the user in. This is how Zendesk does SSO, for example.
OmniAuthJWT provides a clean, simple wrapper on top of JWT so that you can easily implement this kind of SSO either between your own applications or allow third parties to delegate authentication.
