This course is also available as self-paced virtual (e-learning) course JWS and JWE Support in IBM DataPower V7.2 (ZE712G).This option does not require any travel.
This course teaches you how to use the JWS and JWE support that is part of IBM DataPower V7.2. JWS provides data integrity support for REST and JSON messages. JWE provides data confidentiality for REST and JSON messages. The course covers both the WebGUI approach and the GatewayScript approach. Hands-on exercises provide opportunities to practice the information that is covered in the lectures.

This intermediate course is designed for IBM DataPower V7.2 integration developers who need to configure signing and encrypting support for REST and JSON messages.
You should have:
- WebGUI and GatewayScript experience with IBM DataPower V6.0 or later, or successfully complete course Accelerate, Secure and Integrate with IBM DataPower V7.1 (WE711G) or Accelerate, Secure and Integrate with IBM DataPower V7.1 (ZE711G)
- Familiarity with the JSON Object Signing and Encryption (JOSE) specifications. This knowledge can be obtained by watching the JOSE and JOSE support in IBM DataPower V7.2 (VW712G) webcast at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2O5eat6A60
