> The TLS Toolkit uses a shared secret "token" when running in client/server 
> mode in order to perform pre-authentication when requesting a signed 
> certificate from the CA. There is a validation that this token is *required*, 
> but not that it is of a certain length. Because the HMAC construction is 
> available in the source code, the process could easily be brute-forced if the 
> token value is short. We should enforce a minimum length of 16 bytes 
> (regardless if read from {{config.json}} or provided via command line). 
> We may also want to add exponential rate-limiting on failed HMAC values for 
> the same requested public key DN in order to mitigate malicious requests.
