CakePHP User Authentication

About the Book

Nearly all web application needs some kind of user handling functionality. User handling could be simple like a rod, or a really sophisticated and complicated system. Sometimes we will have only one user, who could add new things, edit and delete them in our application. Sometimes we have to handle many users, different permissions, roles and groups and do it as comfortable as possible. Luckily CakePHP offers a great help in our work by its Auth component.
