Site User Authentication
I had looked for a few simple ones quite some time ago. Take a look
at X-Protection - http://www.hotscripts.com/Detailed/44885.html. I
found it quite basic, but it contains the basics to secure your site.
This package is very simple to set-up initially (only one config.php
to modify), but assumes that a database containing the user
information already exists. There is no method of user creation or
user management, as that would be managed by the already existent
This package assumes that there is an existent database which would
contain all extra 'features' - such as name, email, gender, address,
etc, as well as an admin or user creation area. This script, as is,
only provides a method of protecting a page, and requiring a login -
all other functions such as user creation and modification would have
to be programmed in addition to this tool.
