M7's core product provides easy to implement authentication and authorization services via hosted a key signing platform. These tools may also be used to perform JWT token and document signing for any other need required.

Tokens may validated locally, or remotely, depending on the level of security required. remote validation solves 2 problems.

  1. It removes the need to install oftentimes difficult to use encrpytion libraries and simplifies website development.
  2. Removes a potentially expensive operation from your infrastructure.
local vaidation can still receive these benefits by installing a signing server in their own infrastructure, if network IP hijacking is a concern.

ID JWT's generated by id.m7 are best used for members area authentication and user generated content authentication. however any service requiring document signing may also be performed.
