Paul Jones' Blog:
Solar and TypeKey Authentication
Aug 02, 2006 @ 14:08:00

It seems Paul Jones and the Solar crew forgot to mention something with their latest release of the framework - a new authentication adapter for using Typekey in your code

As astute observers will have realized, the most-recent release of Solar had a new authentication adapter in it: Solar_Auth_Adapter_Typekey.

In this article, I'm going to talk a bit about Solar authentication in general, and then TypeKey authentication in specific.

Paul talks first about authentication in general using Solar, giving a simple code example of using the Solar_Auth class. With that base in place, he moves on to the TypeKey authentication, a more unified method for user validation than just using a seperate login at each site.

He explains what's needed to get the ball rolling and demonstrates a TypeKey login link and the setup for the adapter to validate the user.
