NAME
authtest - Test the Courier Authentication Library SYNOPSIS
authtest {loginid} [password] [newpassword] DESCRIPTION
authtest is a command-line diagnostic utility for the Courier Authentication Library. authtest requires at least one argument: loginid. authtest sends the authentication request to the Courier Authentication Library, then displays the results. Only root may use authtest utility, and the Courier Authentication Library daemon (authdaemond) must already be started. If only one argument is provided, the authentication request displays the account information for loginid, if found. If two arguments are provided, password must match loginid's existing password. If three arguments are provided, loginid's password is changed to newpassword, but only if password matches the existing psasword. These three basic authentication requests can be used to troubleshoot the authentication library's configuration. Double Precision, Inc. 08/23/2008 AUTHTEST(1)

NAME
Jifty::Plugin::Authentication::Password::Mixin::Model::User - password plugin user mixin model SYNOPSIS
package MyApp::Model::User; use Jifty::DBI::Schema; use MyApp::Record schema { # custom column definitions }; use Jifty::Plugin::User::Mixin::Model::User; # name, email, email_confirmed use Jifty::Plugin::Authentication::Password::Mixin::Model::User; # ^^ password, auth_token DESCRIPTION
This mixin model is added to the application's account model for use with the password authentication plugin. This mixin should be used in combination with Jifty::Plugin::User::Mixin::Model::User. SCHEMA
This mixin adds the following columns to the model schema: auth_token This is a unique identifier used when confirming a user's email account and recovering a lost password. password This is the user's password. It will be stored in the database after being processed through Digest::MD5, so the password cannot be directly recovered from the database. METHODS
register_triggers Adds the triggers to the model this mixin is added to. password_is PASSWORD Checks if the user's password matches the provided PASSWORD. hashed_password_is HASH TOKEN Check if the given HASH is the result of hashing our (already salted and hashed) password with TOKEN. This can be used in cases where the pre-hashed password is sent during login as an additional security precaution (such as could be done via Javascript). validate_password Makes sure that the password is six characters long or longer, unless we have alternative means to authenticate. after_create This trigger is added to the account model. It automatically sends a notification email to the user for password confirmation. See Jifty::Plugin::Authentication::Password::Notification::ConfirmEmail. has_alternative_auth If your model supports other means of authentication, you should have this method return true, so the "password" field can optionally be null and authentication with password is disabled in that case. after_set_password Regenerate authentication tokens on password change regenerate_auth_token Generate a new auth_token for this user. This will invalidate any existing feed URLs. SEE ALSO
