  1. I intended to send this question in an email but there is no contact information (at least that I could find quickly) on the main site (odd and suspicious). UAV Coach is one of two companies that is currently allowed to administer the Recreational UAS Safety Test. The claim from the FAA, UAV Coach, and Pilot Institute is that no information about the test taker is kept. This begs the question of how anyone is supposed to verify that a presented certificate is valid. I took the test (which is a joke) and have easily modified the certificate to make it a fillable PDF. With no way to verify the authenticity of the certificate I could post the blank certificate for anyone to download, fill out and print at home without having to pass any information onto a third party. Anyway, on the certificate there is an "Authentication Token" which looks suspiciously like a unique ID. I haven't looked at it too deeply yet, and though I doubt I'll receive a sufficient answer I'd like to know what the token is for, how is it generated, what information is used to generate it, is it generated randomly and if so what methods are being used to generate the random data used to create it?
