Hi chinnu,

 

Access tokens follow the same rules as regular Salesforce session IDs - they have an idle timeout that is set in Setup | Administration Setup | Session Settings | Session Timeout. The default session timeout is 2 hours, but an org admin can set it to any of a variety of values from 15 minutes to 8 hours. See https://login.salesforce.com/help/doc/user_ed.jsp?loc=help&target=admin_sessions.htm&section=Securit... for more details

I'm not sure what you're asking here.  The auth token can be used with the REST API, as long as your organization has access to the API.
