Authentication plugins

Hi,

I'm starting a new project with Rails and I've read many things about
authentication.

Could anyone confirms that the plugin restful authentication (
http://agilewebdevelopment.com/plugins/restful_authentication ) is the
"state-of-the-art" authentication plugin ?

Are there other plugins ( or example of code ) I should consider to
use ?

Another question: what about openid authentication ?

Is it possible to use it in addition with the official open-id plugin
( http://svn.rubyonrails.org/rails/plugins/open_id_authentication/ ) ?

Thank you !

Cedric

I got my plugin here:

http://svn.techno-weenie.net/projects/plugins/restful_authentication/

This is Rick Olson's plugin repository. The URL you have mentioned
also leads to Olson's plugin.

A very detailed tutorial about setting up user authentication is here:

http://www.railsforum.com/viewtopic.php?id=14216

This also talks about OpenID authentication.

And that is what I followed. But to understand it better, watching the
RAILScast below

http://railscasts.com/episodes/67

helped!

Thanks, I'll read/whatch these.
