    Is it possible to secure token without SSL/certificate ?

    If we have constraints for SSL/certificate then how could we give security to my public facing web api?

    Please share the knowledge if anything exist.

    Hi tapan2017,

    What token do you want to secure? What do you mean by give security? Do you mean secure the message between client and web api? If so, I think you need SSL, otherwise, it will be in plain text.

    Best Regards,

    Edward
