Subject RE: Authentication & session handling
Date Mon, 12 Nov 2007 19:11:58 GMT
Hi,

I am not aware of a ready framework. The Embperl web sites (which you 
can find as an example under eg/web in the Embperl distribution), 
implements some of your ideas.

> 6. User is in!
> 7. Every time the user accesses a protected document, the 
> timestamp is updated for the session cookie in database.
> 8. If user drinks coffee for 20 minutes and comes back to her

> 9. If the authentication is successfully, the user will be

> And so long the cookie is valid the user has free access to 
> the whole restricted area. But when the cookie expires due to 
> inactivity, then the user again is redirected to the login page.
