The idea is to encrypt content (arbitrary bytes) and send it as part
of a json construct. Unlike the xml document scenarios, where you
want to encrypt parts. There is currently a BSD style implementation
of json security drafts by a German researcher, that I have requested
to be made into an independent project. Then Jackson or any other
project that intends to have json signature/encryption can get this
functionality via this independent library.

Bill, time for you to submit a IETF draft to datatracker.ietf.org/wg/jose/
