PSR7 Middleware authentication stack for the CakePHP framework.

Don't know what a middleware is? Check the CakePHP documentation and additionally read this.

This plugin is for CakePHP 3.4+. If your application existed before (<= CakePHP 3.3), please make sure it is adjusted to leverage middleware as described in the docs.

Authentication is not Authorization

This plugin intentionally does not handle authorization. It was decoupled from authorization on purpose for a clear separation of concerns. See also Computer access control. This plugin handles only identification and authentication. We might have another plugin for authorization.
