Secure ruby, rails programming

Hello Community,

I am just learning Ruby and Rails and would like to know what good
security ruby gems are out there that will help me keep data sent over
the wire secure or stored on a server secure vs plain old text.

Does rails provide this through it’s framework?
What are some good encryption gems to use?

With respect to security and Ruby, what are good books or online sites
that you Ruby Veteran use.

Hello Rajinder!

To give you a short and sweet answer, there are lots of different
plugins to
use with rails that will help you with security. For instance, AuthLogic
is
a great user authentication plugin to handle accounts in a secure
fashion

However, this is the general Ruby language list, and so it’s kind of a
little off-topic. You should try the Rails specific help, you’ll find
more
and better help with Rails there.

Hi Steve,
thanks for the help and tip. I will keep this in mind when posting
future questions to ruby-talk
