Clear text or default passwords have always been a source of opening backdoors by a brute-force attack. Password authentication has been the key to access control over devices. However, with the same or default passwords given on publication, they can prove to be the initial cause of brute force attacks.
Tokens can be a good alternative to sharing sensitive data such as usernames and passwords over unsecured networks. Encryption on tokens can assure no communication of private data. These tokens provide a light-weight framework that have a time validity and other security attributes that can authenticate and manage keys using data encryption. JSON web tokens are popularly used as a suitable option for tokens.
With new data security laws like GDPR, there is a whole new focus on securing sensitive data. Tokenization is one such method where the sensitive data, e.g. user’s SSN number, is converted into a token. The authorized applications can retrieve the original data from the token.
