The token is stored as a cookie that accompanies every request the client makes. Generating and validating this cookie is performed by the Cookie Authentication Middleware. The middleware serializes a user principal into an encrypted cookie. On subsequent requests, the middleware validates the cookie, recreates the principal, and assigns the principal to the User property of HttpContext.
