    We had few distribution groups in our AD for emailing. To provide access to my application i use these groups to generate the license keys.

    Microsoft clearly says "Distribution groups play no role in security (you do not assign permissions to distribution groups), and you cannot use them to filter Group Policy settings."

    Is there any way to get the token access for the Distribution groups?

    You can use Security enabled distribution list for permissioning in application.

    If you are using .Net you can restrict access with groups by giving the below code in web.config:

    <authentication mode="Windows"/>
    			<allow roles="Domain Name\Group Name"/>
    			<deny users="*"/>
