Authentication Script - El Forum - 08-09-2007

Hello all,

Just wondering whether you think I should code my own authentication script (login, logout, register, forgotten password, remember me).

I can code the register script and the admin backend so I don't really need a full featured plugin but I've never really dove in to cookies and managing how the user would login with CI. I'll also need to be able to call to see if the user is logged in, an admin, etc.

By using a full featured plugin such as FreakAuth I can simply use it straight away after a few tweaks and it'll be easy enough to upgrade later. Plus, the script is very detailed in how it manages the user.

Are there any other auth plugins that I should look at and are still in active development?

Thanks.

I think something like simpleauth is the best route to go for you. It is fairly simple and easy to modify.

I'm not saying that freakauth and similar aren't any good, they are excellent, it is just that they are overkill for me, i need something i can look at and understand quickly.

If you are serious about your security, make sure whatever you go for either has salt or is easy for you to throw salt into.

Good Luck.

I cannot find any reference to simpleauth on the forums or on the wiki. Do you mean auth, or simplelogin?

As for salt, I don't follow? Tongue

Oh yes, simplelogin is the one. Sorry!

Salt http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salt_(cryptography)

Is there a other resource for simplelogin? The panda link works, but the download doesn't end.
