What is a token?

A token is like a special key that represents something valuable but doesn't directly show what that valuable thing is. It's used to protect important information, like a secret code, without revealing the actual code itself.
Here are some options to define a token:
  1. 1.
    Text-Based Tokens:
    • Random Text: Generate random alphanumeric characters as tokens, ensuring uniqueness and unpredictability.
  2. 2.
    Alphanumeric Tokens:
    • Random Alphanumeric: Combine random letters and numbers to create tokens that are both secure and user-friendly.
  3. 3.
    Format-Preserved Tokens:
    • Preserve Certain Characters: Maintain specific characters, such as separators or hyphens, while tokenizing the rest of the data. This helps users recognize the format of the original data.
  4. 4.
    Custom Tokens:
    • User-Defined Patterns: Allow users to define their own token patterns or formats based on their needs and preferences.
  5. 5.
    Length of Tokens:
    • Fixed-Length Tokens: Specify a fixed length for tokens, ensuring consistency and compatibility with data structures.
    • Variable-Length Tokens: Allow tokens to vary in length based on the length of the original data.
