Salesforce Security Token
A Salesforce Security Token is an automatically generated key from Salesforce.

To access salesforce via API or a client, users must add their security token to the end of their password to log in. For example, if a user’s password is mypassword, and the security token is XXXXXXXXXX, the user must enter mypasswordXXXXXXXXXX to log in.

A Salesforce Security Token can be obtained by changing your password, or by Resetting your security token.
