I’m trying to understand how the restful_authentication encryption of
the password works.
I understand that there is three key fields in teh database (schema
I was just wondering how these work together, for example if my password
is “yellowpages” how does this plugin encrypt the clear text password
and how does it work with the salt field as well?
I have tried looking for docs on this but there isn’t much out there.
Why I’m asking this is because I want to try and get an external
application to authentication with my RoR application and for me to do
this I need to understand how restful_authentication encrypts, validates
a clear text password.
Thanks for your help in advance.
