Quick overview of JSON tokens

Quick overview of JSON tokens

please provide me a few sentences to explain JSON tokens. I have worked with JSON on various full stack positions, and wonder how JSON tokens fit in.

Thanks

Context is required.

Maybe you mean Web tokens.

With JSON there is no concept of security, tokens, authentication.

This normally happens at a higher level, like Apache basic authentication or PHP session management.

Describe your context for good answers.

I guess the term used on the job description was "JSON Web Tokens". Have you heard of these?
