Goal

Customer uses PS_TOKEN to implement Single Signon with 3rd party system. For security reasons, the authentication token expiration time is set to one minute on the Single Signon page.
When the user signs to PIA, the newly created PS_TOKEN is stored on the cookie. After the token expiration time is up, this token is invalid. So the token cannot be used anymore on that session.

To get around this, the customer tried to regenerate PS_TOKEN using PeopleCode variable %AuthenticationToken. But this PS_TOKEN is always the same as the PS_TOKEN which the user signon first time.

Question: is it possible to regenerate PS_TOKEN using PeopleCode?
