A JSON Web Algorithm for Key Management when performing JSON Web Encrption as specified by RFC7518 Section 4.

We can differenciate three kinds of Key Management algorithm:

  • Encrypting where a Content Encryption Key (or CEK) is encrypted.
  • Wrapping where a Content Encryption Key (or CEK), which can be derived, is wrapped.
  • Direct where no Content Encryption Key (or CEK) is generated and a symmetric key or a derived key is directly used to encrypt content.
