Below are libraries used to provide authentication, sessions, logins, etc. for web sites.

1 authenticate

A library for allowing third-party logins to your sites. Currently supports openid version 1 and rpxnow. Focus is on remote authentication methods, such as OpenID, rpxnow and Google.

2 clientsession

clientsession encrypts and hashes data so it can be stored in a cookie safely. This allows you to have very scalable user sessions: you can use multiple servers, and they need only share the encryption key. Achieves security through AES encryption and MD5 hashing. Uses base64 encoding to avoid any issues with characters.
