Token Authentication System

Last Updated: Jun 02, 2014 12:02PM PDT

token authentication system was implemented in BitTorrent to prevent cross-site request forgeries (CSRF). All developers creating applications that use the WebUI backend MUST implement support for this system, as the application will otherwise fail if the user has webui.token_auth enabled.

In 1.8.3 and earlier, token authentication is disabled by default (though users can enable it manually), but this option WILL be enabled by default in future versions, so implementing support now is a requirement for future compatibility.
