Token Authentication questions

We are starting to use Stream Packaging and have some questions regarding token authentication that don't appear to be addressed in the documentation.  Specifically,


  1. Does the token protect only the top level manifest (or does it protect all manifest and segments)?
  2. Can URL query string tokens be used (instead of cookies) for 1st-level manifest and segments for authorization?
  3. Once an event finishes (content becomes VoD), are the same tokens/cookies needed to access the VoD?


Any insight would be appreciated!
