AuthToken field/attribute in Users Object (RT 4.0.2)

I am referring to the AuthToken column in the Users table in the RT installation (4.0.2)

Does any one know what is this field used for?

I have seen this getting set when I create some users and it does not get set when I create some other users.
When does this get set and what is it used for?

Thanks much.

If you visit Preferences -> About Me, you’ll see the Secret
Authentication Token box with an explanation of where it’s used.

It is lazily generated the first time it’s needed.
