JWT signing in client side
This test checks for JWT client side signing
Security Misconfiguration (SM)
How this template works
The API selection filters in this template are used to filter requests based on the response payload and URL. The response payload filter checks if the response contains any of the specified JWT signing functions, such as "jwt.sign(", "jose.JWS.createSign(", "JWTSimple.encode(", or "jwt.encode(". The URL filter extracts the URL from the response and assigns it to the variable "urlVar".
The execute section of this template specifies that a single request should be executed. The request is modified using the "modify_url" action, which uses the value of the "urlVar" variable to modify the URL of the request.
The validation section checks if the response payload of the executed request contains any of the specified JWT signing functions. If any of these functions are found in the response payload, the validation is considered successful.
