[aerogear-dev] Auth-Token: how to ensure one token is used from only one device ?

using the Auth-Token to get access to protected resources / endpoints
(after doing a login) works fine!

I am wondering how to avoid that one token is used on different
devices? (e.g. when somebody is 'stealing' the token).

I did sign-in to the app, using the browser and got the following
token => db5d16da-a1e5-48d9-a2fd-e39e36e835bc

Now I was able to issue a get request against the endpoints, by using
the same token, from different 'devices':
- curl
- iOS test case

NOTE: we don't need a solution now, since I know you guys are busy
with some demo work - but just want to run that 'issue' by this list
