using cookie to authenticate ... ???
Posted on 1997-08-16
Hi, I was assigned a task to design user authentication on our web site. The brief explaination of this authentication is as following.
1. everytime a user want to access our web site should provide their legal user name and password.
2. the administrator can manage the user-name-password database, such as adding a user, delete a user, change the user priority ...
I have read some stuff. And it seems like cookie can do user authentication. but I don't know how to do it exactly. I hope we can use C to implement so that we can seamlessly integrate with our other program like cgi bins. Do you have any idea about that? Or do you know where on the web I can find some more info. about cookie authentication? Thank you for your time.
