Authenticating Requests

There are two methods for authenticating API requests. You can use either of the methods as needed.

  • Token Authentication

    Common requests are authenticated using Tokens. Open APIs typically use Token authentication.

  • AK/SK Authentication

    Requests are encrypted using the Access Key ID (AK) and Secret Access Key (SK). This authentication mode is more secure than token authentication and is recommended for proprietary APIs.
