Security Guidance for the Use of JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) and JSON Schema

Abstract: This paper provides guidance for creating JSON schemas. Validating JSON instance documents against properly designed JSON schemas can reduce the risk of transferring unauthorized or malicious data. Note that schema validation alone is not enough to prevent transfer of unauthorized data; users must perform other content filtering such as dirty word and anti-virus checks, in conjunction with schema validation.
