-Description: Infrastructure plugin for the Catalyst authentication framework.
- This is the base class for authentication user objects.
+Description: Infrastructure plugin for the Catalyst authentication framework
+ Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication provides generic user support for Catalyst
+ apps. It is the basis for both authentication (checking the user is who they
+ claim to be), and authorization (allowing the user to do what the system
+ authorises them to do).
- THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE CLASS! it is intended to provide base functionality
- only.
+ Using authentication is split into two parts. A Store is used to actually
+ store the user information, and can store any amount of data related to the
+ user. Credentials are used to verify users, using information from the store,
+ given data from the frontend. A Credential and a Store are paired to form a
+ 'Realm'. A Catalyst application using the authentication framework must have
+ at least one realm, and may have several.
- It provides the base methods listed below, and any additional methods are
- proxied onto the user object fetched from the underlieing store.
+ To implement authentication in a Catalyst application you need to add this
+ module, and specify at least one realm in the configuration.
- This description was automagically extracted from the module by dh-make-perl.
+ Catalyst is an elegant Model-View-Controller web application framework
+ written in Perl.
