New Authentication Methods [Apr. 14th, 2004|08:39 am]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


Apparently clear authentication (password and hpassword) is deprecated - is there any documentation on authentication using cookies or challenge/response?

Re: Proper calling of challenge authorization, and When is it needed, or even available?

A challenge apparently expires after 60 seconds according to checks I've made. In many other systems I've seen (not mentioned one way or the other in the Documentation here), a challenge/response is only valid until
1) The time limit expires, or
2) The response is issued

The specifics of what to do there and why the documentation appears to be incomplete, I suppose is the real question...
