    Dear PopleysYsb ,

    You may try Encode JSON Web Token Assertion - CA API Gateway - 9.4 - CA Technologies Documentation 

    There is other (tactical) assertion for encryption, but Encode JSON web token assertion is recommended.

    Hi Mark,here I didn't want to use any asymmetric keys(pub/private keys), i just want to encrypt using some AES 128 or 256 encryption, so that i can use that to decrypt back.

    I receive the userId in x-www-from-encoded basically as string.

    We have tactical assertion for  symmetric encryption/decryption, you can open a support ticket to ask for it.

    You should read the Tactical Crypto Assertion Warning first to understand the risk
