About This Document

This document describes the functional specification of open-caching relayed-token-authentication mechanism. The focus is on generically supporting URI signing using this method. There are additional applications – like user Cookies, which are mentioned in this document without getting into the specifics. While multiple different CDNs, as well as CDNi, support Tokenization in alternative methods, the goal of this implementation is to support all of these different formats via the relay authentication mechanism.
