Trust Tokens and Private Federated Zone


This document applies to buyers. Otherwise refer to the Sellers or Users sections of this guide.


Sellers can publish private and public zones to Federation. If a zone is public, it is supplied to the market for general consumption and all buyers can see and subscribe to it. In case of a private zone, only the buyers who have a trust token from the seller can access the zone. If you received a trust token from the seller, you can view and subscribe to their private federated zone.

After the trust token is used it is stored in the data base and cannot be deleted. After you delete a trust token you will still be able to see the private zone it was associated with.
