A Week of Symfony #815 (8-14 August 2022)

This week, the biggest new feature added to the upcoming Symfony 6.2 version was an access token authenticator. This security authenticator is able to fetch a token in the request header and retrieve the associated user identifier. It supports custom tokens and self-contained tokens such as JWT, Paseto, and SAML.
