NestJS offers us the solo @nestjs/jwt module that allows us to integrate JWT in our project.
The Passport package is a massively used NodeJS library, whose “sole purpose is to authenticate requests, which it does through an extensible set of plugins known as strategies.
Here is a detailed post of how you can implement them in your project.
