JSON Web Token vs sso: What are the differences?

Developers describe JSON Web Token as "A JSON-based open standard for creating access tokens". JSON Web Token is an open standard that defines a compact and self-contained way for securely transmitting information between parties as a JSON object. This information can be verified and trusted because it is digitally signed. On the other hand, sso is detailed as "Buzzfeed's single-sign-on authentication proxy". The authentication and authorization system BuzzFeed developed to provide a secure, single sign-on experience for access to the many internal web apps used by our employees.

JSON Web Token and sso belong to "User Management and Authentication" category of the tech stack.
