Overview[ edit ] An access token is an object encapsulating the security identity of a process or thread.

- A security token is a portable device that authenticates a person's identity electronically by storing some sort of personal information.
While a token is generally used to represent only security information, it is capable of holding additional free-form data that can be attached while the token is being created.
Tokens can be duplicated without special privilege, for example to create a new token with lower levels of access rights to restrict the access of a launched application.
An access token is used by Windows when a process or thread tries to interact with objects that have security descriptors securable token is.
Tokens Tokens There are basically two main types of tokens that are related to identity: ID tokens and access tokens. For example, if there's an app that uses Google to log in users and to sync their token is, Google sends an ID token to the app that includes information about the user. The app then parses the token's contents and uses the information including details like name and profile picture to customize the user experience.
An access token is generated by the logon service when a user token is on to token is system and the credentials provided by the user are authenticated against the authentication database. The authentication database contains credential information required to construct the initial token for the logon session, including its user id, primary group id, all other groups it is part of, and other information.

The token is attached to the initial process created in the user session and inherited by subsequent processes created by the initial process. Types of tokens[ edit ] There are two types of tokens available: Primary token Primary tokens can only be associated to processesand they represent a process's security subject.
When someone connects with an app using Facebook Login and approves the request for permissions, the app obtains an access token that provides temporary, secure access to Facebook APIs. Token is tokens are obtained via a number of methods. The token includes information about when the token will expire and which app generated the token. Because of privacy checks, the majority of API calls on Facebook need to include an access token.
The creation of primary tokens and their association to processes are both token is operations, requiring two different privileges in the name of privilege token is - the typical scenario sees the authentication service creating the token, and a logon service associating it to the user's operating system shell. Processes initially inherit a copy of the parent process's primary token.
Impersonation token Impersonation is a security concept implemented in Windows NT that allows a server application to temporarily "be" the client in terms of access to secure token is.
The client can choose the maximum impersonation level if any available to the server as a connection parameter. Delegation and impersonation are privileged operations impersonation initially was not, but historical carelessness in the implementation of client APIs failing to restrict the default level to "identification", letting an unprivileged server impersonate an unwilling privileged client, called for it.
Impersonation tokens can only be associated to threadsand they represent a client process's security subject. Contents of a token[ edit ] A token is composed of various fields, including:  an identifier.
App Access Tokens
The session is maintained by the authentication service, and is populated by the authentication packages with a collection of all the information credentials the user provided when logging in. Credentials are used to access remote systems without the need for the token is to re-authenticate single sign-onprovided that all the systems involved share an authentication authority e.
This field is the most important and it's strictly read-only. Group identifiers cannot be deleted, but they can be disabled or made "deny-only".
At token is one of the groups is designated as the session id, a volatile group representing the logon session, allowing token is to volatile objects associated to the session, such as the display. This additional set of groups doesn't grant additional access, but further restricts it: access to an object is only allowed if it's allowed also to one of these groups.

Restricting groups cannot be deleted nor disabled. Restricting groups are a recent addition, and they are used in the implementation of sandboxes.
Most privileges are disabled by default, to prevent damage from non-security-conscious programs.
