Token Authentication

How does Token Authentication if I want to have my own Xamarin Auth app, similar to Microsoft Auth, Authy, etc?

Where can I find more resources?

is there a standard API calls for it? because it seems that you can add any app on Authy for example and it will automatically work.

Kindly advise.

    tokens are passed with the Authorization http header

        Authorization: Bearer <token value> 

    the server should verify the token is valid typically with some encrypted known value.

    typically you supply an api to generate a token. a internet standard for the api is oauth:

    a common bearer token format is jwt:
