Impersonate Component

A component that stores the current authentication session and creates new session for impersonating Users. User can revert back to original authentication sessions without the need to re-login.

Warning

Always double check that an attacker cannot "spoof" other users in the controller actions. To prevent hijacking of users accounts that the current request User shouldn't/wouldn't have normal access to. You should enable CsfrComponent and SecurityComponent in your Controller when loading this component.

This Plugin does circumvent default authentication mechanisms

Requirement

  1. CakePHP 3.7 and above.

Installation/Upgrading

composer require jomweb/cake-impersonate:"^3.0"

    'sessionKey' => 'OriginalAuth'
]

Usage

Impersonate user

$this->Impersonate->isImpersonated();

Logout from impersonating

$this->Impersonate->logout();
