events” claim that contains one or more event identifiers (which are URIs) that say what event the SET describes. This work isn’t being done in isolation. Among others, the OpenID Risk and Incident Sharing and Coordination (RISC) working group, the OpenID Back-Channel Logout specification, and the SCIM Provisioning Events work intend to use the Security Event Token format. To make this concrete, the claims in an example OpenID Connect Back-Channel Logout token (which is a SET) are:

My great friend and mentor Doc Searls posted a poignant eulogy to Leonard Cohen.
I had no idea he felt the same way I do about his music.
Through the soundtrack of my life, nobody else taught more about how to be a man, a lover, and a human being with one foot in the temporary world and the other in eternity.< p dir="ltr">I’ve listened over and over to all of his albums.
