Coding a Custom Credential Store for Basic authentication or HTTP forms-based authentication RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi. I have looked at some articles discussing how you can write code to authenticate against your own authentication backend with IAG.

    Now, when IAG intercepts and replays credentials for a given site - say, I again want to write code that uses my own authentication store (long story) to pull out the credentials to be POSTed for that user (i.e. i don't have all my credentials in the IAG store).

    Does anyone know where i can get started?

  • Yes - learned a lot since then.

    You need to write an .inc file per store and customize that as discussed here ...

    You need to code up your own store to cache the credentials but you can proxy it in the code.

    Read the first two docs from this search  (user guide and advanced user guide) ...
