RDP Authentication

Need your insight. A client is subscribed to RDP Streaming Pricing services. They have 6 different servers and have been provided with 6 different machine IDs. Need your insight to understand the best practice of token management. Client has created multiple ‘AppKeys’ using single machine ID and been able to create tokens from each of the appkeys. From my understanding tokens should be based on the machine ID regardless of the number of appkeys created under a particular machine ID.. is that correct ?

Should they be using different machine IDs to connect to each server or just use one machine ID with 6 different appkeys ? What happens to the existing token if a new one is created using different appkey under same machine ID before the expiration of previous token.. does it becomes invalid ?

Thank you,

Waseem

Hi @mohammad waseem,

The best practice is to associate a single machine ID with a single application. With this approach, the access token is exclusively used by a single app, and another app will not invalidate the token.

AppKey is just an app identifier and any machine ID can use it regardless of which machine ID created it.
