We also worked a lot on the authentication and authorization plugins
The plan is outlined here:
And these plugins are itching to be tested:
use Catalyst qw/
# this is for the core authentication functionality, and
# optional integration with sessions
# this provides the $c->login method which verifies the user's
# identity using a login/password pair
Authentication::Credential::Password (part of the core plugin)
# you need to choose a default store by using a store plugin
# these are already written
Authentication::Store::Minimal # useful for testing - very lightweight
# This one is compatible with CDBI too. Right now this plugin is
# heavily inspired by the old CDBI stuff. This will change -
# the current functionality will be in Store::DBIC::Simple,
# while a more flexible one will be added in the future.
# This plugin provides role based access controls
# And here is a completely new plugin that lets you
# declaratively restrict access to your controller space. See
# it's test suite for examples.
Note that the APIs are not as backwards compatible as the new session
stuff, so be sure to read the docs/code first if trying on an older
You should use these plugins with Catalyst from trunk - I have not
yet tried them with 5.33.
