Implementation Status: Implemented

Authentication tokens are used to verify a client's authentication status with 3rd parties. For example the client requests a token when it is ready to join a server. This token is then given to the server with the join request. Before the server allows the client to join the game, the server must call the master API to verify the validity of the token for the user in question.

The tokens are generated and validated using two different API calls: Generate New Token and Validate Token
