The confirmation token is generated by the CreateAccount(String, String, Boolean), CreateUserAndAccount(String, String, Object, Boolean), and GeneratePasswordResetToken(String, Int32) methods. The token is ordinarily sent to the user as a link in an email message, and the user clicks the link in order to verify his or her identity.
