A Security Token (a.k.a. an Authentication Token) is a small hardware security device in the form of a swipeable card, key fob, or USB type of device.
Once the Security Token has been activated in a manner appropriate to its physical form, the user will need to enter a personal identification number (PIN) or password, and may be required to enter an additional numerical code generated by the device.
