What is the actual meaning of the Id property in the HardwareToken class?

    Question

  • Per MSDN, the Id property of the token class is the hardware identifier that identifies the device.

    On My Win8 Pro, I get the token with the function HardwareIdentification.GetPackageSpecificToken (Please refer to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/jj553431). The value is 6,0,1,0,4,0,163,161,1,0,174,212,2,0,142,181,9,0,60,197. The MSDN said that: the byte stream consists of multiple groups of four bytes. The first two bytes contain the type of the component and the next two bytes contain the value. So for the above value there are five groups:

    6,0,1,0

    4,0,163,161

    1,0,174,212

    2,0,142,181

    9,0,60,197

    I want to know what is the meaning of the corresponding values? For example, the group 2,0,142,181 means the memory. 142, 181 is the value. But what is the exact meaning?

    Thank you all very much.
