View Full Version : Question about password encryption
04-07-2003, 02:43 AM
For instance... if I put the script on "www.asdf.index.htm" that would direct to the page "www.asdf.welcome.htm" if the user inputs the correct password. But if the user simply new the directed page "www.asdf.welcome.htm", then they could type that in and bypass the script.
Is there a way to prevent this?

Have a look at
This is the best you are going to get without server side

However, if you really need to secure a page, you need server-side authentication

never tried it ( i suspect borgoise cookie is right), but how how about document referrer? You could always say: "bugger the encrytion...its not worth my while without control of the server"...my advice...nothings secure.

Philip, Ill check that out. Thx.
Also claimed to be the best you can get....???
I haven't tried cookies, but my site isn't anything that needs to be secured. I just thought it was a neat addition :)
