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

This branch is for CakePHP 3.x. Please make sure your application has been adjusted to leverage middleware as described in the docs.

Authentication, not Authorization

This plugin intends to provide a framework around authentication and user identification. Authorization is a separate concern that has been packaged into a separate authorization plugin.


You can install this plugin into your CakePHP application using composer:

php composer.phar require cakephp/authentication

Load the plugin by adding the following statement in your project's src/Application.php:

public function bootstrap()

Prior to 3.6.0



Documentation for this plugin can be found in the CakePHP Cookbook
