What are Token-Based Devices?

A Token-based device or a security token is known by several names such as, hardware token, authentication token, USB token, cryptographic token, software token, virtual token, or key fob. A security token may be a physical device that an authorized user is given to access a system or network. Security tokens are used to prove one’s identity electronically and is used in addition to or in place of a password to prove that the customer is who they claim to be. The token acts like an electronic key to access something.
