Introduction

This guide explains how you can achieve auth between microservices using SuperTokens. When microservice M1 wants to talk to microservice M2, M1 will start by creating a JWT (by contacting the SuperTokens core), and pass that JWT to M2.

M2 will then verify the JWT, check that it's created by another microservice, and only then proceed with serving the request.
