Kevin provides a step-by-step overview of how user authentication works.
- [Instructor] In this chapter, we will learn how to…regulate access to certain pages by requiring the user…to provide the username and the password.…This process is called User Authentication,…because we are verifying the identity of a user.…An authentic user should know the username and the password.…Let's begin by getting an overview of User Authentication.…User Authentication is essential…in any modern web application.…Because they almost always have…some kind of password-protected area.…Maybe it's a content management system…where staff or admins are able to update…content that the public sees.…
That's the case in our application we're building.…Or it might be that there is a VIP area,…or a Member Only area,…an area dedicated to certain customers,…or to paying users.…In all those cases, we'd want to protect those pages…so that you have to have a username and password…to be able to see the content that's there.…It's important to do it right,…because if we don't, if we make mistakes,…they can be extremely costly.…
