Today's technology needs are getting higher; one of the technologies that continue to grow now is Web Service (WS). WS is stateless and can increase service flexibility on a system. However, security at WS is one of the things that need attention. One effort to overcome this problem is JWT (JSON Web Token). JWT is an authentication mechanism at WS. In this research, we will discuss the performance of JWT RSA-512 which is implemented on SOAP and RESTful. The test results show that the speed of the JWT RSA-512 token on the RESTful process is superior to 24.69% compared to SOAP. Then the speed of the authentication of JWT RSA-512 tokens, RESTful is superior to 11.64% compared to SOAP. Whereas in testing the size of JWT RSA-512 generated tokens, RESTful is only 1.25% superior to SOAP.
