* HS384 - HMAC using SHA-384 hash algorithm
* HS512 - HMAC using SHA-512 hash algorithm
* RS256 - RSASSA-PKCS1-v1_5 signature algorithm using SHA-256 hash
* RS384 - RSASSA-PKCS1-v1_5 signature algorithm using SHA-384 hash
* RS512 - RSASSA-PKCS1-v1_5 signature algorithm using SHA-512 hash
Supported reserved claim names:
