> The reference guide (found at [https://syncope.apache.org/docs/2.1/reference-guide.html])
references JWT asymmetric key signing, but when talking about the keys, it mentions that the
private key should be shared and the public key should remain secret.  This is the opposite
of what is generally practiced.  I am assuming that this is a typo and that public and private
should be switched.  
>  
> Here is the wording:
> {quote}This configuration requires to specify a key pair: the former key value, said _private_,
must be shared with clients, while the latter key value, said _public_, must be kept secret
for internal Core usage.
> {quote}
