authentication system help

Hi folks,

        I am trying

to implement an authentication system for my website. Rails website led me to http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/Authentication
. While I want to implement something like a SaltedHashLoginGenerator
, reviews and blogs point out issues with its instability.

        Any advice

for me as to which plug-in to use.

I prefer acts_as_authenticated
