NAME ^

CGI::Application::Plugin::Authentication::Driver::Generic - Generic Authentication driver

SYNOPSIS ^

 use base qw(CGI::Application);
 use CGI::Application::Plugin::Authentication;

  __PACKAGE__->authen->config(
        DRIVER => [ 'Generic', { user1 => '123', user2 => '123' } ],
  );

DESCRIPTION ^

This Driver offers a simple way to provide a user database to the CGI::Application::Plugin::Authentication plugin. It offers three ways to provide a list of users to the plugin by providing a hash of username/password pairs, an array of arrays containing the username and password pairs, or a code reference that returns back the username, or undef on success or failure.

EXAMPLE ^

  my %users = (
    user1 => '123',
    user2 => '123',
  );
  __PACKAGE__->authen->config(
        DRIVER => [ 'Generic', \%users ],
  );

  - or -

  my @users = (
    ['example.com', 'user1', '123'],
    ['example.com', 'user2', '123'],
    ['foobar.com', 'user1', '123'],
  );
  __PACKAGE__->authen->config(
        DRIVER => [ 'Generic', \@users ],
        CREDENTIALS => [ 'authen_domain', 'authen_username', 'authen_password' ]
  );

  - or -

  sub check_password {
    my @credentials = @_;
    if ($credentials[0] eq 'test' && $credentials[1] eq 'secret') {
        return 'testuser';
    }
    return;
  }

  __PACKAGE__->authen->config(
        DRIVER => [ 'Generic', \&check_password ],
  );

METHODS ^

verify_credentials

This method will test the provided credentials against either the hash ref, array ref or code ref that the driver was configured with.
