Security in the API

Access Web Service using SSL to ensure the communication channel is secure. Secret Server uses a token-based authentication mechanism which makes Web Service requests easier as the authentication occurs as a separate step, and then the token is passed to each method. This token has a limited lifespan depending on the configuration determined by the administrator of the Secret Server.
