Implementation Guide

This section of the documentation should serve as a guide for implementors who seek to bring PASETO to their favorite programming language or framework.

This covers the nitty gritty engineering details, trade-offs, and any questions whose answers don't fit elegantly in the protocol definition.


PASETO is a suite of protocols with distinct versions. Each version may impose its own requirements in order to achieve cryptographic security, so long as the rules for new versions are followed.

PASETO can be separated into two distinct parts:

  1. The cryptography protocol (defined in the Protocol Versions section) that protects a payload.
  2. The payload.
