// Verifier is the interface for verifying signed JWTs.
// See RFC 7519 and RFC 7515. Security guarantees: similar to Verifier.
type Verifier interface {
// Verifies and decodes a JWT token in the JWS compact serialization format.
// The JWT is validated against the rules in validator. That is, every claim
// in validator must also be present in the JWT. For example, if validator
// contains an issuer (iss) claim, the JWT must contain an identical claim.
// The JWT can contain claims that are NOT in the validator. However, if the
// JWT contains a list of audiences, the validator must also contain an
// audience in the list.
// If the JWT contains timestamp claims such as expiration (exp), issued_at
// (iat) or not_before (nbf), they will also be validated. validator allows to
// set a clock skew, to deal with small clock differences among different
// machines.
