(Node.js) Create JWT Using RSA (RS256, RS384, or RS512)

Demonstrates how to create a JWT using an RSA private key. This is for JOSE headers with an "alg" of RS256, RS384, or RS512. When RSA is used, the private key signs (creates) the JWT, and the public key is for verification.

This example also demonstrates how to include time constraints:

  • nbf: Not Before Time
  • exp: Expiration Time
  • iat: Issue At Time
