Authorization using tokens instead of passwords

Storing and saving passwords inside applications is not safe. For better security our SDK provides two additional login methods: with the one-time login keys and with the renewable tokens. Keys omits the need to store passwords entirely by using your own backend that will generate a one-time login key each time your application needs to login the Voximplant cloud. Although very secure, the keys require your own backend to be created, while the “tokens” can be used entirely on the SDK side with some security and usability trade-offs that are explained in this article.
