401 Error - Duplicate nonce to one already received (Status 401 - Message_Key:invalid_signature)
Error Code Cause
The LMS generates a unique value called the oauth_nonce when a user clicks a VitalSource link. If VitalSource receives more than one request to open an eTextbook with the same oauth_nonce value, a user will see this error. In most cases, the cause of this error is due to a user double-clicking a VitalSource link in their LMS.
A user can solve this error by logging out of their LMS, logging back in, and click the VitalSource link once again. If these steps do not resolve your issue, follow the steps in the For More Help section below to submit a support request to VitalSource for assistance.
