READynamic issues an authentication token for each user who sets up an account to use the software. Any API that requires authentication must be able to access this user token. After a customer sets up an account, READynamic will add that customer’s token to a cookie on the customer’s machine, so that the browser will be able to find it later.
When you issue an API call for READynamic, you will need an authentication token to access any eBook file that has restricted access, or that is provided on a page that requires a customer sign-on. For those eBook texts that are provided for public access, such as titles in the public domain because the copyright has expired, a token is not needed.
