Encrypt and URL disallowed characters - alphanumeric option?

#1
[eluser]antonumia[/eluser]
I am constructing an autologin process whereby restricted users on a site receive an email with a url containing controller/function/encrypted_name/encrypted_password.


I want to avoid allowing more characters in $config['permitted_uri_chars']

Is there a way to restrict the encryption to alphanumeric characters only?

thanks,

anton

It seems that it's only using + and = and after reading

I figure this would be ok.

unless anyone has a better idea?

I'm confuse what exactly you want.

Quote:I want to avoid allowing more characters in $config[‘permitted_uri_chars’]
then add all characters you want

don't use dohash use random generator function can only give you alphanumeric

While I don't approve of the auto-login idea (use a remember-me cookie instead), my solution would be this.

[EDIT: On second thought, my solution would be to add it as a GET parameter]

Ah, that'll do it.

thanks Inparo

btw:auto-login isn't something I'd consider usually but it's a restricted set of users connecting to a non-public site where they subsequently login/register for another level of access.

The autologin url is sent as a link via email
