Kohana

This page presents a set of Kohana modules. These modules are concerned with secure authentication and access control, user configuration and logging, automatic form generation and validation, navigation generation and CSS/JS assets.

Update. Check out the Kohana Demo application illustrating the use of several of the plugins for Kohana 3.1, 3.2 and 3.3.6.

Kohana Red

Kohana Red is a user authentication module aimed to provide maximum security.

Features:

  • Store your user's passwords safely: modern hash algorithms supported, repeated hashing, application and user salts.
  • Store your user's session in the database.
  • Prevent brute force attacks by setting a login delay.
  • Remember your user's sessions for several days or even months.
  • Manage several groups of users by assigning them to so called roles.

Red is the base module for a whole series of Kohana modules concerned with security, user management and access control:
— Kohana Red: user authentication.
