Authentication tokens

API tokens use the widely used JWT encoding format, and we take extra measures to harden the tokens:

  • Configurable lifetime (defaults to 4 hours)

  • Configurable storage policy (defaults to session storage)

  • Revoked at logout

  • Invalidate all user tokens on request

  • Client fingerprinting
