Code Snippet for Creating Secure Token in Java
Tokens can be used for many things. Among them are Single Sign On, or saving an identification number without exposing it to the web. Here is a quick code snippet to create a 16 character token
First you need an import:
here is the code snippet:
String token1 = null;
SecureRandom secureRandom = new SecureRandom();
String secString = new BigInteger(130, secureRandom).toString(32);
token1 = secString.substring(0, 15); //creates a 16 character token
Alter the substring end value to change the size of the token.
Hope this helps someone.
