How do I enable authenticated URLs?

In some cases you want your files to be more secure, and have full control over who can access your files. Uploadcare provides an additional secure option called "authenticated URLs". After it's turned on, to be accessed, all your files will need a secret token and expiration date to be added to their CDN URLs. The token can be only generated with a known secret key that we'll provide you with while setup. 

This is how secured URL looks like:

http://cdn.example.com/a9be48e9-986d-4024-bce6-e40c516bccea?token=exp=1462383360~data=my_signature_data~hmac=2d5a69e9a3d2b6d304958a05afc2c139045adb71f65115861736be5cba98359d

Note, that "authenticated URLs" works alongside with custom CNAME that has to be set up first.

Please, contact us if you want to enable authenticated URLs for your project(s).
