Authentication plugins


I’m starting a new project with Rails and I’ve read many things about

Could anyone confirms that the plugin restful authentication ( ) is the
“state-of-the-art” authentication plugin ?

Are there other plugins ( or example of code ) I should consider to
use ?

Another question: what about openid authentication ?

Is it possible to use it in addition with the official open-id plugin
( ) ?

Thank you !


I got my plugin here:

This is Rick O.'s plugin repository. The URL you have mentioned
also leads to Olson’s plugin.

A very detailed tutorial about setting up user authentication is here:

This also talks about OpenID authentication.

And that is what I followed. But to understand it better, watching the
RAILScast below



Thanks, I’ll read/whatch these.
