What is a token from CloudDB?

I'm doing an application that uses cloudDB, but i want to know what is the "token" property. What is it?

In pure redis server terms, it is the secret password set on the server, and thus required for any access to the underlying data.

for example:
Set redis Password

In AI2 terms, MIT has configured their redis server to set different tokens for different users (creating individual pockets for each user). This is done automatically by session when you load a cloudDB component, and is retained across sessions.

Redis is not really intended as a front end data service, the database it creates is usually accessed by other front facing web technologies, hence there is little security attached to it, because it is normally buried on the server somewhere.
