Difference between access_token and public_token ?

Hi, Can someone explain me the exact difference between the access_token and the public_token?
An example scenario/use case would be much easier to understand.

    All the API calls are authenticated using access_token. Right now, we use public token only in Kite ticker(websockets). We are soon going to migrate to access token authentication for that as well.

    The real use-case for public token would be for the platforms which are being developed using Kite Connect APIs for authenticating user where they can't expose access token.
