Passwords are the most common way to authenticate users. However, if somebody sees a user typing a password, the password may be stolen and the user account may be taken over.

A better approach is used by some bank ATMs. They show a bunch of buttons with lists of letter and number sequences on each button. The user has to use the right buttons by the correct sequence.

Since the buttons show different types of letter and number groups, even if somebody sees which buttons the user pressed, he will not know exactly what is the correct sequence.

This class provides means to implement a similar security system in PHP. It presents a list of links with values that the user needs to click, one after another by the correct sequence to be authenticated successfully.

Read this article to learn more details about how this notable PHP package works.




The package PHP Secret URL Path is one of the few PHP packages that was considered notable recently because it does something that is worth paying attention.

The basic purpose is: Authorize access based on user click sequence

Here follows in more detail what it does:

This class can authorize access based on user click sequence.

It takes an array of values and checks if the user has clicked on links with parameter values that follow the sequence of values in the array.

The class object is stored in a session variable, so in the next access the class can check if the correct link was clicked passing the next value in the array.

Notable PHP packages can be often considered innovative. If this package is also innovative, it can be nominated to the PHP Innovation Award and the author may win prizes and recognition for sharing innovative packages.

If you also developed your own notable or innovative packages consider sharing them, so you can also earn more visibility for your package.
