Member Function Documentation

ElggPAM::authenticate (   $credentials = array())

Authenticate a set of credentials against a policy This function will process all registered PAM handlers or stop when the first handler fails.

A handler fails by either returning false or throwing an exception. The advantage of throwing an exception is that it returns a message that can be passed to the user. The processing order of the handlers is determined by the order that they were registered.

If $credentials are provided, the PAM handler should authenticate using the provided credentials. If not, then credentials should be prompted for or otherwise retrieved (eg from the HTTP header or $_SESSION).

Parameters
array$credentialsCredentials array dependant on policy type
Returns
bool
